Two-thirds of parents in the U.S. say parenting is harder today than it was 20 years ago, with many citing technologies – like social media or smartphones – as a reason

Those who rely on social media for news are less likely to get the facts right about the coronavirus and politics and more likely to hear some unproven claims

A majority of Americans think social media companies have too much power and influence in politics, and roughly half think major technology companies should be regulated more than they are now, according to a new Pew Research Center survey that comes as four major tech executives prepare to testify before Congress about their firms’ role in the economy and society.

As Americans hunkered down under stay-at-home orders for much of March and April, they unsurprisingly consumed more mobile media. The added mobile time, however, wasn’t distributed equally. Some long-term trends, such as greater consumer interest in mobile video and gaming, accelerated as people sought diversion. Other longer-term trends, including digital audio, stagnated as commuting time fell precipitously.

The multi-cultural and international film industry is poised to develop true, realistic and un-sensationalized cultural-image-identity in the movie and series production business sector to reflect in-depth cultural nuances that are integral and loyal to a human segment regardless of the culture.

No one believed them.  By Brian Jacobs - The COG Blog

The explosion of the internet in the early 2000s transformed the ways brands engage with consumers. The rise of social media has only further shifted engagement models from focusing on television, print, and radio ads, to investing more in social platforms.

The migration of consumers from television and print to digital has led to a surplus of customer data that can be used to develop hyper-personalized ads that can be delivered to the millions of customers active on digital channels.

It's a bit of a business this blogging lark. You write a piece on Facebook and the various companies who have decided in one shape or form to pull funds from the platform, only for Mark Zuckerberg to change the rules thus rendering out-of-date most of what I'd written.
