Social Media Is the Dread Pirate Roberts of Marketing (254)

Big news this week with big tech and social media taking down Parler, while, according to Edelman, businesses are now most trusted entity in the world. God help us all.


This week on This Old Marketing, Joe and Robert cover Amazon taking down Parler. Does it tell us anything about free speech?

And, while that was happening, someone scraped all Parler's data.

The run on music archives continues, with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder getting a boat load of cash for songs we've never heard.

How does the media rebound? By becoming human again of course.

Axios launched a 10k subscription product to help brands communicate better internally. They may not have priced it high enough.

And as a cake topper, over 1,000 brands unknowingly ran ads against articles promoting conspiracy theories. We are shocked.

In rants and raves, Joe raves about Mr Beast's origin story, while Robert gushes over Edelman's Trust Barometer.
