So it has been too long between posts here. How many times have I said that? This time though I am free to write what I want again since I have taken a break from the Social Media insights blog at EzyInsights.
I had fun writing there, about a number of topics, but I wonder if why scepticism shone through at times. Don’t get me wrong. I think that ezyinsights is a great tool, provide easy yet actionable insights into your Social Media presence(s). But Social Media itself, especially Twitter, I struggle still to see the point of it some times.

An interesting (Ezy)insight into start-up life and AdWeek 2013 in NYC. Wish I was there. #AWX #ezyinsights
This year has been a cracker of year for live music for me. I’ve had one of the best festivals ever in Shout it Out Loud and my favourite performance of all time with the incredible Tesla… There was maybe the best “show” when P!nk came to town and Muse made amends for a lackluster performance in Malaysia a few year back.

This is a case of not only unwanted advertising, but page load has gone all to pot. Notice the text boxes where you are supposed to sign in?
Brilliant design and totally unobtrusive… NOT!
Next up in the series is this one, again from Facebook.
So this time the country is correct, but aside from not speaking Finnish I work for Nokia – my phone contract and amazing Lumia 820 are provided as part of my job.
I have lots of Apple gear around the house, don’t get me wrong. But iPhones, and old iPhones specifically: no thanks!
So this is the first post in a new category of posts. “Crap Advertising” is the name and it will be filled with images and comments on some of the adverts I get served.
I’ll try to explain why they are crap but it’s most likely due to bad targeting not necessarily bad adverts in themselves.
First up is this one on Facebook. This has appeared in my newsfeed on a number of occasions. I’m not sure how they think I’ll be a good candidate.
I have no engineering experience, let alone for an aircraft. I have no idea what multi-type rated is and I live in Finland – perfect!!
Is this crap adversing or actually genius as I have talked about it already on Facebook and now I’m blogging about it?
It’s been over a month since the festival and it is still very clear in my mind. I said at the time that it was probably the best gig of my life. I still think so now. Tesla we just amazing.

Jettblack were probably the least surprising of all the bands. No real prior knowledge of them, and they sounded how I imagined they would – apart from their accents. They were good none the less.
HEAT sounded as if they could have been magic. We were hangin’ in the VIP area with BlackRain at the time *. If we had gone into the crowd I bet it would have been awesome. Funnily enough they had played in Finland a few weeks prior @on the rocks. I would definitely go and see them again.

Duisburg, 5th (ha ha) April 2013 will be a day that I’ll not forget for a long time. Shout It Out Loud IV really was something special.
As part of a few days break in the area that took in a local game of football and many of the local beers the concert was top-notch from the time the first guitar screeched until the final bows.

Just waiting for the Facebook Friends Fence to be reposted. I’m sure that’ll fool quite a few.
