On April 13th, AMC’s Mad Men will enter its seventh and final season, and its central character, Don Draper, will reveal a lush, new beard for us all to marvel. Mad Men fanatics know that the show’s creator, Matthew Weiner, is ultra tight-lipped about what will transpire in future episodes, so perhaps you all are thinking that I’m either full of beard trimmings or that I came across this information underhandedly by bribing one of the cast member’s with a carton of cigarettes.  I’m only, however, making an educated guess that I’d bet my copy of  Zou Bisou Bisou  on, [...] Read more →

Social Intelligence about Headphones – #4 Why So Negative?

19th March 201419/03/14

[This is part of a series of recaps on this Sennheiser Social Intelligence report] One of the ways to break up the raw data is to sort mentions or posts by geographical location. In general, the US Geography map is very pretty to look at, since there’s typically a gradient that works itself artistically throughout the 50 states. But when I saw Sennheiser’s map, my first thought was this: If this map were for a presidential candidate’s ratings during the Iowa caucuses, he or she would have a heart attack. For some reason, sentiment about Sennheiser is very negative in [...] Read more →

What’s Your Favorite Beer? by Anna Startseva @annastartse Marketing Manager, NetBase Spring is not only the season when people begin talking about love, but also about their love of beer.

It may be the surest sign that spring is just around the corner… Girl Scout Cookie season is here! And they’re here, as always, for a short time: The cookies are available only during the six- to eight-week period when the scouts are engaged in the cookie-selling fund raiser with their local council. The scouts themselves are adorable, of course, but which variety of their cookies do people like best? Thin Mints? Samoas? Tagalongs? Inquiring minds want to know. So we did a BPI to find out.
