Think carefully before planning Olympic themed Promotions?

The Intellectual Property laws relating to the 2012 Olympics are probably the most restrictive ever in their scope. Even simple messages of support such as “X supports the London Olympics” or “come to our bar and watch the 2012 Games on the big screen” would probably infringe the London Olympic Association Rights.

Whilst the commercial benefits of the Games are widely promoted, ignoring the rules could be very damaging to your business.  For more information visit the Intellectual Property Office website.


Facebook Timeline is coming for Pages, like it or not

When Facebook make changes it always prompts a flood of complaints, so the new Timeline for Facebook Business Pages which goes live on 30th March is likely to attract the same comments, despite the long preview time to allow users to adapt.

However for brands the impact may well be more positive. The website Mashable cited research indicating brands got an average of 46% more engagement with Timeline, a feature that records a “life story” through photos and milestones. For more details visit The Gmanetwork website

To preview Facebook Timeline visit Facebook or visit to see how we have adapted to this new layout.  Please Like us while you are there to receive regular updates and offers.

Twitter admits ‘unfollowing bug’

If you have been offended because a friend, customer or supplier stopped following you on Twitter for no apparent reason or you have missed a message because you have mysteriously stopped following someone then it is likely to be a Twitter bug.

Many Twitter users are being affected by a bug which is causing them to ‘unfollow’ fellow tweeters without their permission.   More details in The Telegraph
