  23. 23. The aggregate chatter can be organized into overarching themes both positive and negative - but mostly positive. FormFiftyFive: Absolutely loving Skimmer! jakeybro: Finally got through to http://is.gd/oGtE Skimmer. Very nice. Good example of A for Agency Effort value. Should be fruitful for Fallon. http://www.fallon.com/skimmer Like it so Far…. s_hsu: Has anyone tried rypan: Skimmer is hot. Skimmer?

About Time Crashy, buggy and errory. FAIL. maurar: hi - @skimmer i can't Hate it! Privacy, Please? Hate it! Limited authenticate any of my services. you may AIR platform Functionality identifide: @edfladung agreed, I would like be sexy but you are something like skimmer that wasn't an AIR sucks! not making it easy to redquake: is app... AIR seems to bog down my computer love you. Skimmer tracking quite a bit... what I'm doing? mikevitellaro: Skimmer is sort of useless, so far. marchdigital: skimmer isnt so cool. Just redquake: skeptical another bloody air app with a twitter feed mattupstate: Just installed Skimmer. about Skimmer.... ... and it doesnt seem to auto refresh? Looks pretty, but don't foresee myself using it much. Source: Skimmer Twitter Comments
  24. 24. There is strong linkage and association with Fallon, and Skimmer lends the brand a halo of ‘modern agency’ savvy. @chasporter: So obvious, why didn't other ad agencies or digital firms see the opportunity Fallon saw and seized? This revitalizes their brand. #skimmer @andrelouis: Playing with Skimmer. Hugely impressed (and slightly jealous) that an ad agency came up with this. Well done to the smart bastards @ Fallon @petterw: Like the new fallon.com site. Without forcing it down my throat it says they understand interactive, the web, social media, etc. @markfrisk: Nice goin'. Major ad agency Fallon goes long on social media, creates Skimmer, cool social net dashboard app. http://ow.ly/1mao @Crusty: Not impressed by Fallon's #Skimmer. Impressed by #Fallon having a go at something else than advertising. Whether they like it or not, they understand the significance of an Agency producing a social media idea outside of our advertising specialty. Source: Skimmer Twitter Comments
  25. 25. Unfortunately, some assume that Fallon intends to monitor your usage and sell your data - and/or interrupt you with ads in the future. @jasonclement: offering 20 bucks to the first person who can prove that fallon's new app quot;skimmerquot; is or isn't improperly collecting data about its users @aDogNamedPants: @jpdevries keep in mind, Skimmer is a tool for Fallon to collect and sell off peoples information to their clients. @northbasecamp: RT @nymphobrainiac: #fallon new #skimmer air app collects PII data and shares it w/affiliates. Read privacy policy. http://is.gd/oNF9 @peter_lorent: Skimmer is in the trash. Privacy Policy is crazy. My advice: trash it quickly. @bit101: skimmer privacy policy: Partners Subsidiaries and Affiliates: We may share your information ... @nymphobrainiac: @bit101 also #skimmer collects your PII data and shares it w/affiliates. Read privacy policy. Not cool. @redboy: anyone else a lil off-put by #skimmer's privacy policies? bueller? it does look so damn purty tho.
  26. 26. Warning Light: While Privacy Questions are hardly a groundswell crisis, we should continue to monitor for this meme. Is Skimmer tracking Hey what I'm Is skimmer gaining Skimmer... doing? access to all of my stay out of info because it is my gmail and saving my hotmail passwords?? accounts! This misinformation deserves a swift response.
