Today In Communication History

On this date in 1949, Polaroid camera goes on sale in New York with a price tag of $89.95. And thus began one of the most unique stories about one of the most unique persons on the planet. Here is a brief history from then to now.

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new
homes with meters that record the channel being watched—but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.


He said it first....'Television'.

He said it first….’Television’.

In 1900, the term ‘television’ is coined by Constantin Perskyi at the International Electricity Congress, part of the 1900 Paris Exhibition.

Demographic Research
Shifts In Young Mothers’ Brand Conversations
Young mothers (aged 18-34) still mostly talk about brands in face-to-face conversation, but online conversations have grown in recent years, per new data from Keller Fay Group. The newly-released figures indicate that between 2008 and 2015, the share of brand conversations among young mothers taking place in face-to-face conversations decreased from 75% to 70%.
At the same time, online conversations grew from 6% to 14% of all brand conversations over the same period.

Interestingly, this shift seems to be occurring more rapidly among mothers when compared with non-mothers. Specifically, face-to-face conversations have only declined a point to 73% in terms of word-of-mouth share among Millennial non-mothers, with online conversation growing at a slightly more muted pace than for mothers (from 7% to 12%).

For context, data released in late 2014 by the Keller Fay Group found that 71% of all Millennials’ word-of-mouth impressions about brands took place offline.

Meanwhile, the move to more online conversations isn’t the only noteworthy trend. As the data attests, it’s also the types of brands that Millennial mothers are talking about that is changing. While there’s been a strong increase since 2010 in conversation about household brands, technology brands have also seen a hike in conversation, of 25%. That compares favorably to an overall increase of 9% in conversation about tech brands.

Other categories seeing an increase in conversation among young mothers include travel, retail and financial services. (Interestingly, women and Millennials are driving the conversation about financial services on Facebook, per a new MarketingCharts report. These increases have occurred at the same time as conversation about children’s products has declined by 2% during the same period, from December 2010 to December 2015.

The shift is evident in the top brands that Millennial mothers are talking about. While Walmart remains the most talked about brand, tech companies now occupy 4 of the top 10 positions, led by Apple (#2) and Samsung (#3). At the same time, the 10th-most talked about brand in December 2010, Pampers, has fallen to #45 in the December 2015 rankings, while the #11 brand, Huggies, has dropped to #23.

Amazon also cracked the top 10 in the latest rankings, coming in at #8. The brand had the most positive word-of-mouth among US parents last year and the second-best among Millennials, per YouGov BrandIndex data.

It’s worth noting that the Keller Fay Group data suggests that Millennial mothers aren’t talking less, they’re simply talking about different things and in different ways. Given MarketingCharts’ primary research showing that recommendations from friends and family trump all forms of paid advertising in terms of purchase influence among both women and Millennials, these trends are important considerations for brands.

Social Media Research
Facebook Live Video Awareness Highest Among 30-44-Year-Olds
Some 37% of US adults have heard about Facebook’s new feature allowing them to broadcast live video, details YouGov in recent research conducted for the Huffington Post. Notably, awareness (heard “a lot” or “a little”) was highest among the 30-44 age group (54%), followed by those under 30 (45%). The 30-44 bracket (14%) was also twice as likely as the adult average (7%) to say that they would broadcast live video of their life on Facebook.
Separate results from the survey indicate that adults are slightly more likely to be using Facebook less (28%) than more (25%) when compared to their usage last year. This pattern holds true across all age groups save for 30-44-year-olds, who are more likely to have increased (31%) than decreased (23%) their time spent with Facebook.

Perhaps trust has a role to play. While 45% of 30-44-year-olds trust Facebook with their personal data either a lot (3%) or somewhat (42%), that figure drops to 36% of 18-29-year-olds and 45-64-year-olds and just 19% of those aged 65 and older. On a racial/ethnic basis, Hispanics (46%) are the most trusting overall, though Black Americans are the most likely (10%) to trust Facebook “a lot” with their data.
