This Weekend in 1942, ‘In Which We Serve‘ was directed by Noël Coward and David Lean. It stars Noël Coward, John Mills, Bernard Miles, Celia Johnson and Richard Attenborough in his first screen role. The film remains a classic example of wartime British cinema through its patriotic imagery of national unity and social cohesion within the context of the war. It did $2 million in U.S. Box office. The film was nominated in the 1943 Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. Coward was presented with an Academy Honorary Award for “his outstanding production achievement.”



This weekend in 1942, ‘(I’ve Got a Gal In) Kalamazoo‘ was the #1 record with Glenn Miller and His Orchestra with Tex Beneke, Marion Hutton and the Modernaires. This was the second week at #1 as it would be in that position for the next 7 weeks.

The latest social media stats include this: Americans spend 25% of their time on social media.YouTube has viewers now watch 1 billion hours of video each day. 85% of digital video viewers will be YouTube viewers as daily usage of YouTube, is estimated the video-sharing platform will reach 185.9 million monthly US users in 2017 Facebook having 2.047 billion monthly users watching 8 billion videos each day. In addition, 81% of all shares come from Facebook. 41% of Millennials use Facebook every day. And, there are now 5 million active advertisers on its platform, up from 4 million in September 2016 and 2 million in February 2015. Instagram has 700 million users of which 250 million are daily users. 88% of Twitter users are on mobile. An average of 500 million tweets are sent every day with 320 million active users. Twitter had 9 million new members sign up in Q1 2017. The Google+1 button is hit 5 billion times per day. 80% of Internet users on Pinterest are female. Eighty-one percent of US consumers use Facebook regularly, compared with Google (79%), Twitter (43%) and Instagram (40%), System1 Research reported.

Snapchat Rates Poorly Among Female Influencers. A narrow focus on recipients and content appears to be the reason female influencers rank Snapchat low on their priority list of social media, as revealed in a Collective Bias survey. Respondents generally favored Instagram and Pinterest, with visual orientation rated highly.

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.
