  • @FusionBrand: Good point about customers not companies define brands.

    About teen smokers rising in some countries (especially female smokers) the point I'm making is not that mobile phone is the solution. The solution is finding something that's a better social tool than smoking. And as I said in the presentation, ANYTHING can be a social tool

  • I like the presentation although I thought the connection between smoking and marketing today is a stretch - teen smokers in Malaysia and Singapore continue to rise despite the fact that mobile ownership has reached saturation.

    While I'm at it, I disagree that this is not about branding, this IS about branding. In the social economy, customers not companies define brands.

    I wrote about this extensively, here is a link to one article http://brandconsultantasia.com/2010/06/16/creative-campaign-not-the-solution-to-smoking-issues-in-singapore/ (I hope you don't mind the self promotion)
