K.N.O.W. ALERT Social Media A Blessing Or A Curse ?? By Monica Morton President/CEO K.N.O.W.

Social Media A Blessing Or A Curse ??

WOW…what can I say about the internet and social media. Yes, Twitter, Facebook and You Tube etc. Are some of the greatest forms of social media ever invented. Its great to hook up with lost friends and family, old class mates, teachers that influenced your life.

But hold up, that’s not what is happening. We get calls constantly from agents and managers because, their clients are twitting large jewelry purchases, their travel schedules, new car purchases, vacation locations etc.. Ladies and Gentlemen this makes you a sitting duck for thieves and criminals to target your home and frequented locales for robbery attempts.

Be cautious about what you tweet and state on your Facebook profile about your life and activities.

Safety Tips To Follow

1)When you shop or dining out, use valet as often as possible and don’t leave money and expensive purchases in your vehicle, be aware of your surroundings as you depart.

2)When you complete shopping or leave a location make sure that you are not being followed by a curious fan or admirer. Use and trust your intuition and common sense.If you see a vehicle behind you too long in traffic, make an unexpected turn or stop in a well lighted and secure area. and phone the police, if needed.  Never take a chance, because these days an angry encounter can turn deadly !

3)When you travel use luggage that requires a key and utilize the hotel safe for expensive items and make sure all items have been insured, documented and photographed , in case there is a theft and you need proof for an insurance claim.

Transmediation entails the optimization grand narratives for engagement and immersion across multimodal (multi-format, multimedia, multi-device) content.

Transmediators use focused imagination and resonance to maintain COHERENCE of their narratives across the Web, print, packaging, signage, and satellite TV as well as beverages, cosmetics and personal care, events, fashion apparel, food, industrial design, and Web services for PCs and mobile devices (including Apps!)

Transmedia practitioners–transmediators–assume a market condition of *hyper-transparency*, wherein the personal truths of each actor (consumer, customer, intermediaries, originating service provider or product innovator, and the entire “upstream” raw material, component, and assembly providers) remain accessible to each other.

Transmedia parallels the emergence of “slow food” and the idea of “soil to plate” and “farmer to diner” — wherein *social* becomes the newest active ingredient in consumption.

Hyper-transparency thus demands the following of all key actors
• Personal authenticity and congruence
• Willing communication and engagement with other stakeholders
• Earned and sustainable trust

This will entail the transformation of marketing–from hucksters putting lipstick on smelly pigs to authentic and congruent “brand advocates” attracting and engaging consumers in conversation, discussion, and reasoned argument.

Who are Transmediators?

We believe that Transmediation will resonate with these stakeholding groups:
• CREATIVES in advertising and marketing services seeking a broader economic framework for their creative work
• Digital “dotcom” BRAND OWNERS seeking effective physical presence of their purely digital brands
DIGITAL CONTENT INFRASTRUCTURE providers view Transmedia as the next big category for generating demand for the content services
MULTIMEDIA PUBLISHERS transforming their content portfolios into active and vibrant guilds, communities, and congresses.
