  36. 36. FUTURELABThe Pen Is Mightier Than the LockSoon after the release of the so-calledunbreakable new lock, someonedescribed on a bikeforum how hemanaged to open it with an ordinaryballpoint pen.Though it waited for what some mightsay was too long, the company decidedto recall all the new and unbreakablelocks and replace them .We are accelerating the delivery of thenew disc cylinder locks and we willcommunicate directly with ourdistributors, dealers and consumerswithin the coming days. The world justgot tougher and so did our locks. -KryptoniteResults:Estimated cost for free products exchange: $ 10 million.Image damage for trying to ignore – a multiple of that

  38. 38. FUTURELAB Motrin“hell hath no fury like a mommybloggerscorned”Motrin experienced first hand the powerof social media when it released a TVcampaign that blamed carrying babies ina pouch for backpains, as a strategy tosell pain killers.After a while, the entire campaign washijacked by social media active motherswho found it offensive.Motrin responded by taking down the ad,without engaging in conversation whichonly added to the buzz.Communispace found that the moreemotional responses were about thefirestorm and how Johnson & Johnsonhad responded, not about the actual ad.Results:Motrin pulled the ad, apologized. (perhaps prematurely,– consider the following numbers:Percent of internet users who visit twitter at the time = 0.1%Days that the ad went widely ignored for = 45Mommies youtube videos exposure = less than a 30s cable adPeak number of tweets/hour = 300Estimated % of negative tweets = 35%

  41. 41. FUTURELAB GoDaddy CEO kills Elephant, loses customersAfter Bob Parsons (GoDaddy‟sCEO) posted a video of himselfshooting an elephant in Zimbabweand then tweeted to brag about it,GoDaddy competitor Namecheapoffered to donate $1 for everycustomer who transferred theiraccounts over, raising over $20.000.for Save the Elephants, aconservation group.PETA and other organizations alsodenounced the move andencouraged customers to stopdoing business with GoDaddy Results: Besides the media backlash, GoDaddy found themselves bleeding customers as competitors jumped at the opportunity, offering discounted transfer fees and also vouching to donate money to animal welfare organization for every new account.
  42. 42. FUTURELAB Milk FailThe Milk Board and their agency, SanFrancisco-based Goodby, Silverstein &Partners, launched a new social mediacampaign, a tongue-in-cheek look at howdrinking “milk can help reduce thesymptoms” of premenstrual syndrome.The campaign, however was targeted atmen, and a micro-site, with the URL“everythingidoiswrong.org,” was set upand labeled for men as “your home forPMS management.” The site waslaunched around two weeks ago andoriginally scheduled to be live through theend of August. The site‟s contentincluded lists of “apologies” that mencould use with women with PMSsymptoms. Results: After just a few days, the Milk Board found themselves in the middle of a firestorm of criticism on Twitter, Facebook, and the blogosphere as women rose up . Even FunnyorDie came up with a vicious parody ripping the campaign. In the end Goodby and the Milk Board took the site down after 12 days and redirected the original URL to a site titled “Got Discussion” where they tried to undo the damage done.

  73. 73. FUTURELABWho do you trust? Survey Methods Results are based on a Gallup Panel study consisting of web surveys completed by 17,254 national adults, aged 18 and older. Respondents were deemed proficient internet users based on their ability to complete the survey via the web. The study was conducted in September and October 2010. Gallup Panel members are recruited through random selection methods. The panel is weighted so that it is demographically representative of the U.S. adult population. For results based on this sample, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±1.43 percentage points. Margins of sampling errors vary for individual subsamples. In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.
