Just for laughs! Digital marketing has taken over my life

first_imgAs digital marketers we can all relate to moments when we realize our work in the digital space has invaded our personal lives. It may be more realistic however, to just admit our exposure to digital media has completely taken over our daily activities and thought processes! Just for fun, here’s a reflection of the influence digital marketing has had on us, whether we’ve realized it or not.You have started a legitimate statement with “B.T. W (or dubs)” before you could stop yourselfYou read your social media post at least 5 times before posting – and then 5 more times afterYou now silently mock people in your head with hashtags: #boring, #fashionfail, #getahaircutNothing your spouse or kids do is exempt from your marketing input – especially their social media activitiesYou subconsciously critique everything you see, contemplating how it could have gone viral if it had been done differentlyYour ‘personal’ social media accounts are truly just a test environment for your workYou’ve considered creating anonymous social media profiles and/or blogs just to have an outlet to rant, but didn’t because you realize it would be one more channel requiring a content creation strategy you don’t have time to manageYou have at least one smartphone, tablet, or laptop with you at ALL times (you know you’ve brought it in the bathroom!)You’re overly annoyed that double spacing doesn’t automatically add a period to the previous sentence on all devicesYou’ve become distraught on more than one occasion because you felt someone wasn’t using their social media “right”If you hear the phrase “just put it on Facebook” one more time…You’re guilty of tagging a brand, not to be part of the larger conversation, but because you secretly hope to be retweeted, followed, favorited, etc.You find remarketing ads helpful – reminding you why you got online in the first placeRemember the time you left your phone at home and went the whole day without it? No. No you don’t. 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Penne D.

Binghamton University student makes petition for pedestrian path near off-campus housing

first_imgShelli Cohen, BU junior, says she was in contact with the Vestal Town Board before starting the petition. After not hearing back for awhile, Cohen says starting the petition would show how this is issue is important to the Vestal community. We reached out to the Vestal Town Board and they said they are aware of this petition. Her goal is to make it safer for students walking home at night from campus. One of her reasons is since buses are limiting the number of riders, due to COVID-19, students that live near the intersection will likely start walking to campus. “We are students are members of the Vestal community,” Cohen said. “We register to vote here. We use our voices. We engage in the community.” VESTAL (WBNG) — One Binghamton University student has started a petition for a pedestrian path to be made on Plaza Drive and Oxford Place. last_img read more

McGinn: We can cope with absences

first_img The chances of a repeat performance in Belfast could hinge on how many defenders O’Neill has left by the time kick-off comes around – with Daniel Lafferty suspended, Craig Cathcart missing with a knee injury and Aaron Hughes (groin) and Ryan McGivern (knock) both rated as “extreme doubts”. Hughes’ injury means three of the four defenders on duty in the morale-boosting 1-0 win over Russia last time out could be missing against Portugal – Lafferty and Cathcart are the others – leaving Gareth McAuley to man for the fort alongside the returning Jonny Evans. McGinn accepts there have been setbacks but is far from downbeat. “We know it’s a massive challenge. We’re down to the bare bones defensively but there are boys capable of coming in and doing a good job,” the Aberdeen forward said. “You can’t make excuses before the game. We know from training the squad is strong enough to go out and do a good job. We definitely have boys to come in.” Reflecting on the draw in October, and his own part in it, McGinn said: “It was massive. A lot of things came into it… Ronaldo’s 100th cap, playing Portugal in their backyard and the fact that no-one gave us a chance. “Ronaldo’s one of best players in world. He’ll be renowned for reaching that milestone of 100 caps for Portugal so for a wee country boy like me from Donaghmore to score on a special night for him was fantastic. “The boys came away disappointed not to win the game in the end but we know, being realistic, that to come away with a point was fantastic.” If Hughes and McGivern do fail to rally in time, O’Neill faces a selection poser. His other defensive options include the uncapped Rory McKeown, the versatile Alex Bruce – who has yet to feature in a competitive match – and Shane Ferguson, who has been deployed in midfield throughout O’Neill’s reign. A maverick solution to the right-back position might even be to deploy the imposing utility man Josh Magennis, despite the fact he has been playing as a striker for Aberdeen in the last two seasons. Pondering his problems, O’Neill told Sky Sports News: “Aaron has a groin problem from the last few minutes against Newcastle. We’re in constant conversation and we left him an extra day with his club, actually. “He’ll report today (Wednesday) and we’ll see how he is, but he’s an extreme doubt. Ryan (McGivern) is the same to be honest, an extreme doubt. “We have Craig Cathcart out too so that limits us slightly. It’ll be a different back four to what we had against Russia and we may have to look at players who wouldn’t have full-back as their natural position. “We have options and I don’t know if I’ll call anyone in, to be honest, but I’ll assess it.” Press Association The sides meet in a World Cup qualifier at Windsor Park on Friday night, with Ronaldo looking to make up for the reverse fixture when Michael O’Neill’s side spoiled the celebrations around his 100th cap by grabbing a 1-1 draw. McGinn was Northern Ireland’s goalscorer in Porto that night, upstaging Ronaldo with a wonderful finish before Helder Postiga levelled in the last 10 minutes. Northern Ireland may be down to the “bare bones” in defence but Niall McGinn has not given up hope of another shock result against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.last_img read more
