This Weekend in 1942, ‘Random Harvest‘ directed by Mervyn LeRoy and starring Ronald Colman and Greer Garson. Heflin won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Its seven Academy Award nominations included honors for Colman, supporting actress Susan Peters, director Mervyn LeRoy and Best Picture. Garson, whose performance was well-received, was ineligible for the Academy Award for Best Actress, as she had already been nominated that year for her role in Mrs. Miniver. The film pulled in $4.650 million at the domestic box office and $3.497 in foreign earnings in its initial run. It ended #3 at the box office in 1942 behind ‘Mrs Miniver‘ and ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy‘.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the version sung by Bing Crosby is the best-selling single of all time, with estimated sales in excess of 50 million copies worldwide. The original recorded version follows:

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.

Twitter Unveils Sweetstorm Share Function. Twitter is introducing a feature that makes the so-called tweetstorm an official part of its service. The new feature is rolling out now (though it may take a few weeks to get to everyone) and it allows users to compose a thread of multiple tweets almost as easily as a single tweet, with a new “+” menu that allows you to link more than one tweet at a time. While tweetstorms have long been popular among power users, Twitterhasn’t always made composing threads easy on its end, despite efforts to make it simpler over the years. Now, not only will Twitter allow you to create tweetstorms right from its app and website, it will make it much easier to view lengthy threads with four or more tweets via a new “show this thread” option that will “unfurl” linked tweets. Twitter confirmed earlier this year that it was testing such a feature, though this is the first time it’s been made available beyond beta testers. As the company points out in a blog post, the update is meant to make threads more approachable to all of Twitter’s users, not just the power users. But outside of that, embracing long threads and tweetstorms is just another sign that the company is increasingly looking for ways to help users move beyond its once rigid 140-character constraint.

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’.
