Kat, Dan and Barry discuss Google +1, the search giant’s latest attempt to add a social edge to their game; will it work, or is it another ill-thought folly doomed to failure? Dan brings some hard numbers to bear on Twitter’s user stats; Barry recounts a bizarre tale of mobile apps and free beer, then freaks out with Kat over That Can Be My Next Tweet‘s apparent mindreading powers.
New feature: Dead Social Media Accounts Society!
Through the course of the podcast we discovered that both Kat and Dan have a habit of setting up half-arsed social media accounts on a whim, then leaving them to rot: unloved and alone. Kat’s confessed account can be found on Twitter – @tutting; an example of Dan’s fondness for novelty without commitment is also available on full, shameful view – @12secondschef
Please use this as a chance to share your neglected moments of inspiration from the golden age of novelty without commitment and clear out your social media soul!
This week we received a glorious collection of inglorious wanky words to make your skin crawl and your conscience weep:
Insightgeist – from @DrJackLomax
Ideation – from @ravonski
‘You should be looking to leverage your media offering’ – from @wesayso
‘I’ll listen in if you’re properly leveraging your operation synergies to deliver a multi-platform user-engagement ecosystem…’ – from @andyhawkes
A million thanks for those horrors; you should all be proud and ashamed of yourselves in equal measure! Keep them coming! Share your wanky words in the comments here or via @offthewallpost or on Facebook.com/offthewallpost
