  • So proud of all the amazing sailing and beautiful boat,
  • Watching on EK from Nice to Dubai. Go boys go! Thanks Emirates!!!! And for backup feed ,
  • So called global mag propagating a US-centric view of the world. There are great CMOs outside the US ,
  • Everytime I step in I instantly regret it. Appalling service. Dirty stores. Awful coffee. Dreaming of St Ali and Dukes right now,
  • To be clear - when ordering anything large or Venti at Starbucks you are ordering a MILKSHAKE with some coffee ,
  • Further spotlighting the Wallabies Woes ,
  • Like wo has tapes anyway? Or even a tape recorder? Or a tape player? Or a fax? ,
  • RH: respect the opportunity you have @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: Stay humble. Work hard. What happened yesterday has no relevance to today or next week. Don't wait for chance. @Cannes_Lions,
  • RH: companies matter in terms of getting stories out to people. @Cannes_Lions,
  • RH points to Trad media co's entering OTT ... @Cannes_Lions,

Spin Baby Spin

One of the brilliant things about new media is it’s ability to respond to PR spin not on the Editorial page but in the stream of news.

For a new world company. Facebook’s PR is decidedly old world. From the debacle at D through their latest obtuse response.

Great PR is all about great counsel and talent. Here, they followed the same playbook at Google and are landing roughly in the same spot. The good news flows from the normal sources of puff and fluff. But as soon as the content turns hard, the PR machine falters.

You gotta love how Michael exposes this.

    Spin anatomy is revealed in The Standard Table of Influence Strategies at http://www.plays2run.com.

    In this case, Facebook is countering a “Label.” It’s a framing play that applies an unwanted soundbite (“FB Phone”) to an unwitting player (FB). Michael’s deconstruction of the FB statement shows three plays at work:

    (1) “Fiat,” a strategy that declares facts and intent
    (2) “Red Herring” to throw us off the FB Phone scent, and
    (3) “Recast” to morph a discussion to a player’s liking

    Bottom line: FB’s plays are classic moves for the dodging player.
