The June edition of “The Hobson and Holtz Report” features Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz talking about these stories:
- Boeing’s Max 737 crisis is a textbook case of ignoring standards of crisis communication
- Mary Meeker’s annual Internet Trends report has a lot of meat for communicators
- Privacy policies are an incomprehensible disaster
- North Face and its ad agency thought it was clever gaming Wikipedia. Now they’re sorry.
- A privacy issue with precise-location tagging led Twitter to remove the feature despite some noble uses for it.
- Is voice overhyped…even as an Alexa Skill takes home a big prize at Cannes Lions?
Special thanks to Jay Moonah for the opening and closing music.
You can find the stories from which FIR content is selected at Shel’s Link Blog.
The next episode of For Immediate Release will be posted on Monday, June 24.
