Until this year, everybody else but me. The Guardian newspaper ran a piece on April 1 about a cunning campaign by the British Labour Party to engineer an unlikely victory for prime minister Gordon Brown in next month’s General Election.
The clever plan involved a series of adverts riffing off Mr. Brown’s reputation for a [...]


Our recently conducted Fortune Global 100 Social Media Check-up Study explores the use of social media among Fortune Global 100 Companies based on their involvement in Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and corporate blogging.
