I found this article on Danielle Moceri’s blog. You can find the article here.

I saw this video about a week ago and loved it. I thought the idea of having cats run around IKEA was genius. A place that millions of people have gone yet we have had never seen an animal roam free. One thing that I did think about after watching this was, I wonder if people who came to the store the next day and had an allergy attack.
I am very interested in seeing the final product of the video they shot. I also think it would be very cool if they did a follow up the next day in store and see if they noticed anything different or even if they found any “surprises” one of the cats could have left behind.

I found this article on Kelly Wood’s blog. You can find the article here.

I think it was dumb that they decided to redesign their logo. The logo they originally had was okay but the new one was just so plain. I do not see where they put any creativity in the logo. In my opinion they knew it would spark up a little bit of controversy. While all company sales are down they knew this would be away to set them apart from the rest. I’m glad they didn’t keep the new logo but we will see where GAP goes next with their advertising.

I found this article on Elijah Gil’s blog. I found this article here.

The first time I saw this I died laughing. You know that these guys must be so bored at times so they do things like this. While these guys were not super coordinated they made it work. They tried to keep some of the original video moves in this version. I found it pretty creative that they made their own costumes, something I’m sure Lady Gaga would be proud of. I wonder who edited the video and if these guys got in any trouble because of it? I looked around to see if there were any other videos of them but there was just one of the guys singing. I hope they make more covers of songs.

I found this article on Jessica Nguyen’s blog.

I loved that you did a PR connection on this topic (not in a creepy way). Personally I love Glee. Every week it’s what I look forward to watching. When I first heard about these photos I thought: “how bad can they be” and then I saw them. In my opinion they are grow ups. It’s their decision if they want to do it. I know that it looks bad for their younger viewers but why would anyone under the age of 18 need to look at these pictures? So personally I cannot agree with them more. For them I think they are okay, as long as my nieces and nephews will not see the photos.

I found this article on Elaine Bluemling’s blog.

This was a great post Elaine! I found this to be very informative. I had no idea that they did two free bags or that they do not have assigned seats. I think this is very neat. They were obviously smart enough to know that their company should be different. Flying has become somewhat of a hassle but obviously they know how to help out their costumers. Personally I have only flown Southwest once or twice but I think I will start looking more into it.

I found this article on Hope Dodson’s blog.

Something this entry had me thinking was about how everyone says these reality shows were scripted. I also found it very interesting how all these young girls had such good connections with semi-celebrities. I think all these shows were created just for MTV to have some success but they knew people who could help spark their shows. It makes me really wonder how many of these “reality shows” are true reality.

I found this article on Rachel Laflam’s blog.

Rachel I loved this video! I had not seen it yet but have heard so much about it. I’ve seen the guy version where they dance to the song safety dance. I think this is such a creative different way to do things. They knew to keep the peoples attention was by dancing and playing fun music. I think people travel so much that they are just tired of the same ole instruction procedures. I mean most people have flown so they already know what to do in case of an emergency but for first time fliers I am sure they are very cautious. I mean I know if it was my first time flying I would want to know what to do in case of an emergency. Great post!

This video always makes me laugh. It is crazy to me how Sesame Street has been doing all these videos. Where have I been? Have they always done this? It’s very cleaver because kids laugh because they see the monster and parents love it because they know the real joke. They are very cleaver because they are making TV that parents enjoy, unlike The Wiggles or Yo Gabba Gabba that can get super annoying! Thanks for the good laugh Danielle!

This blog post is so true. I know I either follow or have seen each of these types of Twitter profiles. People can be ridiculous when using social media. But I must say it got me thinking.. “Do I do this?”. While twitter is wonderful for connecting you with people and new pages sometimes it can get out of control. I try to make sure I don’t over post on twitter and that I stay respectful. Knowing my mother has a twitter keeps me pretty safe sometimes also. I love getting phone calls from home asking me what that last tweet really meant.

What a perfect post for Halloween. Who doesn’t love the song Thriller and zombies? Seeing a flash mob really makes me want to do one. I’m pretty sure being in a flash mob is on my bucket list. I think this was a very cool way to bring the memory of Jackson back, as it will probably be done every Halloween from now until the end of the world. The idea of doing things like this is awesome and it’s great that the community is getting involved in every aspect possible. I wonder if flash mobs will become common in the city of Boulder of now on? I guess we will have to wait and see next Halloween.

This commercial is hilarious! I was wondering where it was going but then it picked up. I liked how they played off of the love they had for one another but when it came to his food it was a different story. Why does it always seem when you get food people always try to steal a few fries from you? I guess I need to do what this guy did and I will be able to keep all of my fries. If only McDonald’s food was this good for you. I also found it very cool to see how other countries advertise McDonald’s. I thought it was cool that they put the prices on the commercial.

I found this on Devin Adams blog.

Great points were made in response to this article.  Over the past ten years, technology has increased so much so that it has also brought along with it pressure on the travel industry.  Although the business is great for the economy, it also, as stated above, poses questions about security.  Society, in order to be safe, is now forced to choose between health risks or safety.  Even just over the past couple months, safety has become an ever increasing issue; news stations have reported multiple stories regarding people with home made bombs planning to board flights.  If society continues to grow, and travel increases, the risks people may have to take just might have to be that of personal sacrifice for the safety of all.

This is a great video with a huge question behind it; Real or Fake?  I recently posted this video on my blog as well and after watching, I had the same questions.  This video was well filmed and the quality, for a phone, was amazing.  It was all done so well that even I, an iPhone4 owner, questioned the legitimacy of the proposal.  If the video was in fact a perfectly planned and executed proposal, my congratulations go out to the newly engaged couple and I think AT&T and Apple should foot the bill for all of their wedding expenses as a small token of their appreciation for the amazing advertisement.

I found this on Ragan blog.

As I watched this video, one of my first questions was, “WHO is their target audience?”  I think that they intended for this video to be a YouTube sensation that could have possibly revolutionized the listening audience of public radio.  I believe that their intent was great, but the method in which they attempted was a fail.  Although the effort is evident, it, to me, reinforced the fact that public radio has such low ratings for this very reason, attempts at excellence, but a large miss when trying to reach the audience targeted.

This article talked about the analysis of newspapers and how technology has changed the way people view them.  Not only were devices polled, but also the time of day and on what device the newspaper was viewed.  The three candidates were: smart phones, iPads and computers.  The results, to me, were shocking.  I thought the results would show that smart phones were the most widely used device for receiving news, but the results showed that computers were more widely used.  The article did not state whether the computers were desktops, which would indicate the candidates being at work, or laptops which could indicate the participants being elsewhere.

I found this article on PR Daily.
This article covered a report about a Burger King Restaurant in California in which the word “F*** You” appeared printed twice on a customers receipt.  The customer was very upset and although offered free food coupons, still chooses not to eat at the restaurant.  As for the manager on duty and the employee (both names printed on the receipt), they have been fired.  I think that their terminations were justified.   There are very few jobs in the world in which profanity towards customers, the source of business, is accepted.  I commend the franchisee of this Burger King for doing the best for his business.

Very good and relevant post Grace! I know personally I was worried about if I got asked about “IT” that I would have no idea what “IT” really was. I think the post cleared a few things up for me. While I did know the basic information I think the school needs to continue to keep the students involved. While I doubt very seriously we will loose accreditation it is better for us to know as much as possible for when the people come to check out the school. Thanks for the great post!

I found this on Sarah Bedrick blog.

This article talked about the rules and mannerisms of Twitter.  Since Twitter is somewhat of a new social media, some people may not understand how to navigate it properly and be respectful to the ones around them in the “Twitterverse”.  I, as a Twitter user, personally think this report is accurate  in the guidelines reported.  All of us at some time have broken the rules of ethics for Twitter, but this article could help the most social media awkward person navigate Twitter with ease.  I think everyone who plans on using Twitter should read this article.

I think this is a wonderful way to get out a name for you company. At first I thought that I would check it too much but now I’m on it pretty much daily. I love that Lakeland have just recently gotten on the train and joined Groupon. I know already here in Lakeland I’ve learned about so many new companies. I love that you’re aloud to pick up coupons from other cities also so if you’re out visiting a new place or if there is other locations near where you live you can use those also. Great post Grace!

It is insane to think how much stuff we wouldn’t know without the help of good ol’ twitter. While it is crazy to think that it’s a very “creeper” kind of website it comes in handy a majority of the time. I wonder what kind of site we come together next to replace twitter all together (It’s doomed to happen). I wonder when will will regard what needs to remain private and what should really go public. Thanks for the post Kelly!

Minding your p’s and q’s with your laptop

Kai Ryssday

Personally I love to see people interact with their computers. To see people getting angry when it’s not properly working is always funny. I know when older generations use them they seem to try and give up. Me being only 20-years old I have found a way to make them work, there are still times when they do not seem to boot up right. I am very interested in the next few years to see how computers will function to better help the user. We live in a society where technology is key. We will one day have a computer that will be able to show us how to use it without having it press the useless “Help” button.

The Spin Crowd

Andrea “Drea” Adkins

I did not think I would care for this show at all when I first saw it. I had a friend tell me about it and the next thing I knew we were watching it on TV. The show often has some “scripted” moments but it makes it more entertaining. I wish the show would be more involved with their careers and not just show off their office as much. While you do see the guys go to release parties and try to get their clients names more known I think it would be better if I saw them work. I know, I know it is a show so they must keep it entertaining but I think the boring stuff would be good also.

SEU TNL (Thursday Night Live)

Elaine Bluemling

TNL was a blast! Everyone did such a great job. I was able to participate with my friend and the host of TNL, Lizzie Charlton, in a skit we called, “College Fair”. We sang 5 songs and had a few dance moves trying to convince a student on why he should come to Southeastern. The SBLC team did a wonderful job putting everything together for the night. I am already anticipating next years TNL and hope to carry on the skit that we started this year. It was so nice being apart of everything because I got one of the best seats in the house. Thanks for all you did Elaine!

The Social Network

Gracey Hulbert

I am so excited for this movie to be released. I find this story very intriguing and I am interested to see how they portray these characters. What I have heard is that Zuckerberg, CEO and founder of Facebook, is a pretty strange character. They say that he is not a very social person and has very few close friends. Also Zuckerberg has recently announced to make a $100 million donation to New Jersey schools. I find it odd that this donation comes right when his movie is about to be released. Is there a reason for this or is it just coincidence?

Oh No! What Are We All Going to Do Without Facebook?!?….Tweet? 🙂

Kelly Wood

I found this post to be very interesting. I remember when I stared the world of Myspace and a few weeks later Facebook launched. I recall saying that I would never have one, and I kept that promise until my freshman year at Southeastern. While the switch was hard because I had to add all of my friends and find people I once again told myself never again, then the world of Twitter came along. I joined Twitter after interning at a church where all of the pastors used the website. I am now in love with Twitter but I do not think Facebook will be going anywhere. Facebook has way to many things that attract users to stay apart of the social network. As of right now I will be apart of both online communities for a while.

Top Social Media Cities

Kelly Wood

Personally I was shocked on how low some of these other larger cities were ranked. I found it funny Atlanta was number 10 but on Twitter it has it’s own trends section but some of these other big cities do not. I might be a little impartial considering that I want to one day live in Atlanta, but I guess it isn’t a huge deal it ranked 10. I’m also interested to see how this list will change in the next 5-10 years. I wonder what other cities might jump up in the rankings one day soon? I’m sure one day California wont be the leading social media state in the world.

Chase Jarvis

Dave Lapham

I couldn’t agree with you more Dave; it’s all about whom you know. I have a friend that is one of the best photographers I know but he hasn’t got his name out yet. He shoots tons of celebrities, politicians, and many up and coming artists. While he is doing great he only uses it as a side business, he has potential to be a full time photographer. But business is all about the way you can network yourself. Once you have connected with one customer and they get word out about your company, you must be easy to access via Internet or phone number. I will also start looking into this photographer Chase Jarvis.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand MARRIED!!

Elijah Gil

Very cool post Elijah! I did hear a lot about this wedding and something that surprised me was that Katy Perry’s best friend, Rhianna, was a no show. It was said that she was busy recording her new album, Loud, but still I couldn’t imagine missing my best friends wedding. Rhianna also threw Perry’s bachelorette party. I think there might have been some deeper issues. Other recent reports that I have read say that Rhianna will never forgive herself for missing the wedding. Rumors have also been going around saying that Rhianna dislikes Perry’s new husband Russell.

Glee Does Rocky Horror Picture Show

October Neuman

So this post really got me thinking. While I had never really seen Rocky Horror, only parts of the edited TV version, I knew I had to see it before Glee did it. I never thought I would like Glee and I always said I would never watch it, but then I watched one episode and I was hooked. Two weeks prior to the Rocky Horror Glee Show I decided I would download the original movie. It was very risky. Something that I will never let my child watch. While the Glee version was way better I still dont think I will let my child watch either.

Ten Reasons to Blog – Even when nobody reads it

PR Daily

I found this article to be very interesting and helpful. I have just recently started a blog and I didn’t care for it to much when I first began. Now I love blogging. I am currently blogging just for my college class but I think after I finish this semester I will continue blogging about things that I personally care for. Thanks for the great topic and showing people why blogging can be fun!

American media ridicules Obama’s dance moves in India – what do you think?

PR Daily

I think every time we have a president do something that we never see them do it we call them out. Former President Bush has a video that is very similar to this where he is dancing with a tribe from Africa on the White House lawn. I think the funny thing was when the First Lady broke it down. She was the one who had the real moves. I think what President Obama did was just to show support and encourage the people of India. He was supporting them and they wanted to jump in and dance with the kids.

Customize Your Blog’s Error Page in 5 Easy Steps

PR Daily

I have never thought of making something that is common to see on a blog fun. While normally it’s a part of my blog that I would never think of it’s something very important for my viewers. I mean I guess twitter has it with the fail whale so why cant my blog have it’s own “fail whale”? I will for sure do this to my blog when I find the time to update it. I think this is a very cool and fun idea to incorporate in any blog. Thanks for the post!

Cheapflights.co.uk swears on Twitter and calls X Factor contestant a silly bint

Malcolm Coles

I found this article to be quite humorous. While I’m sure not to many Americans saw this tweet considering it was in the UK I’m sure it still wasn’t good. I know I have had friends that run personal accounts for our University and they have done this many times. I know on my iPhone they way Twitter is set up you can have multiple accounts signed on at once, this has messed me up many times. I wonder if this really affected the way his business runs? I guess only time will tell.

Cover Model

October Neuman

October this post was very interesting post. I have heard that she cheated on her husband but I did not now that she was on the cover of Shape magazine. In all honesty I have never heard of Shape magazine. I mean I think it had to be hard when she left her husband but it was her choice to cheat on him. It’s sad that they split but I just don’t understand how she can try to justify why she cheated on her husband was okay. And I can’t believe that eonline would say that but I guess that is the way the media roles.

Business in Mexico in a Nutshell

Melanie Shoults

I had a lot of fun doing this in class last week. It was a different way to learn some new and things we may have already known. It was interesting to see how the different cultures have beliefs. One that stood out to me was that they refuse to do buisness with someone who they do not know. I guess this is a good way to know that you can trust any buisness partner you make. I think each culture has something very important that we can pull from one another. Great post!

The Mcrib is Back

Amber Sakis

I hate to say it but when I saw this post I had a bad feeling in my stomach. I do not understand how the “McRib” can be good for people. I have never had a McRib but the commercials and what I have heard about it keep me far away from it. A friend of mine recently told me that they poor the “mystery meat” into a mold to look like ribs and that’s how the meat takes it’s shape. I think McRib needs to go and stay away for a very long time.

T. Swift Kisses and Tells

Rachel Laflam

I guess it might just be because I’m a guy but personally this entire cd just sounds like Taylor Swift is whining! I really like her and her music stays stuck in my head everytime I hear it but does every song have to be about a guy she dated? my roommate played some of the cd the other day in his car and I enjoyed it but I mean I think she could do much better. She has so much talent and I give her props for writing all of her own music, but I mean common Taylor sing about something else other than ex boyfriends!

10 Ways PR Professionals Drive Journalist Crazy

Mandee Winter

Mandee this video was hilarious! I really liked the way that they played on the mac/pc spoof. It was really cute and the stuff they were saying was points we brought up in class. They way they poke fun at one another is perfect. I think this video needs to be used when classes from next semester are talking about pr vs. journalism. I wonder how they came up with this sketch. Also what you talked about was wonderful, I think you had great points and you really brought the points across. I love the way the video says that they were meant to be together. Without one or the other it wouldn’t work. Great Post!

Rhianna talks about new album “Loud”

Elijah Gil

Interesting post Elijah. After the whole Chris Brown incident I feel like Rhianna is a completely different person (who wouldn’t be). She is an mad talented artist but I think when she released her Rated R album it was a lot of bitterness and that’s why it didn’t do so well. I am very excited about this new album. She recorded Love The Way You Lie Part 2 and it is absolutely insane. She is brilliant. I saw her to an interview saying she almost considered never doing a part 2 but when she recorded it she knew it was perfect. I hope this album is huge for Rhianna I want to see her around for a long time.
