Television Cable News
In an effort increase its audience on Friday, and least for one night this summer, The CW will rebroadcast the upcoming two-hour second season premiere of Michael Bay’s TNT drama ‘The Last Ship’ on Friday, July 26 (which debuts on TNT on Monday, June 21 at 9P). ‘The Last Ship’ was one of the top cable programs last summer. It stars Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra and Alfre Woodard.
Customer Service Satisfaction, By Channel
American adults are most likely to rate companies’ customer service via phone (90%) and online chat (85%) as meeting or exceeding expectations, according to a Northridge Group survey. According to a The Northridge Group report, that result is likely related to these being the only channels through which a majority of respondents expect their issue to be resolved the first time they contact the company. The phone is still the preferred method of customer service contact for half of respondents, ahead of email (27%) and online chat (14%). 77% reach first for the phone when they have an urgent customer service issue or inquiry, though email (47%) is a more common first touchpoint than the phone (24%) when it comes to a non-urgent issue. Just 2% of respondents reported that social media is their preferred method to contact a company with a customer service issue or inquiry. Fully one-third said they usually get no response when contacting a company via social media.
France’s Web Users Wary of Sharing Information with Brands
It’s generally agreed that consumers in Western Europe may be more concerned than internet users elsewhere about online security and keeping their personal information safe in the digital era. And a recent Microsoft report, “The Consumer Data Value Exchange,” appears to confirm that. The report drew on survey results provided by marketing solutions firm Sentient Decision Science, which sampled 16,500 internet users ages 16 and older around the world in April 2015, including 2,400 each in China, France and the US.
Specifically, respondents were asked what kinds of information they would be willing to share with brands. These included their activities and preferences, their online social identity—such as social media posts, images, friend lists and so forth—their demographic profile, personal details such as birthdates, income and addresses, GPS location data, and biometrics—such as fingerprints or data collected by a fitness app or band. In almost every case, web users in France were more reluctant than those in China and/or the US to divulge information. For example, internet users in China were nearly twice as likely as their counterparts in France to reveal anything of their activities and preferences, by a margin of 84% to 44%. (In the US, 57% said they would share such data.)
In France, 26% said they would be willing to share social networking details, compared with 32% in China and 68% in the US. Similarly, 32% of web users in China said they would volunteer individual details such as a birthdate, credit card number or address—nearly three times the percentage (11%) in France. Web users in France were especially hesitant about sharing personal communications and information as well as physiological information.
That said, consumers in France weren’t blind to the potential advantages of letting brands have some of this data. Virtually all of those polled said they would share some sensitive information in exchange for cash rewards, and 92% would do so for significant discounts. The prospect of loyalty points applicable to services and products also appealed to 87%. More than half of respondents said they would be motivated to share if a brand offering connected with all their devices and simplified their lives, or—like several sports or fitness brands—supported their goals and encouraged their progress.
Despite such incentives, most web users in France still have some reservations about releasing information, because they’re never sure exactly how—or whether—the recipient is selling it on, as well as making commercial use of it. Of the internet users in France polled for Symantec’s “State of Privacy Report 2015,” only 12% said they were happy with the idea of companies sharing their data with third parties.
