Discussing Maggi Soup on Social Media

Lately, I've read a lot about social media and their importance in marketing and building brands. Watching an ad for Maggi Soup on the TV just a while back, I questioned, "What would social media do for a product category like that?" Conversations dominate social media. Do people talk and build communities around Maggi Soup? I doubt. But do people connect through talking about bikes? Of course, endless conversations can follow.

For brands in certain product categories (especially FMCG), mass media could continue to play an important role. But what if mass media lose out to social media? That could bring to light the insignificance of these product categories like Maggi Soups and keep the sanctity of TV programming intact for purists :) like me.

Have a great Monday!

David Damron on filling time

Just a few moments back I read this guest post by David Damron (of The Minimalist Path) on ZenHabits. Fantastic read. Simple to apply and see the result for yourself. So, am publishing the same post here. Spread the message far and wide (for it is mighty important) :).

In the post below, forget the word Materialism. It isn't such a 'spiritual' lesson after all; though it could be if you want to take it that way. My point is it might just help you to set some worthy goals for yourself.
