OMD FWD w/c 13th November

Hello and welcome to this week’s edition of OMD FWD. With the big Christmas TV ads released over the last week (including the hotly anticipated John Lewis advert by MG OMD), the festive season is well and truly upon us. This week, Apple teaches people around the world to code with their “Everyone Can Code” initiative. For those that don’t fancy staying in to code, there is good news for nightlife lovers as Facebook relaunches their Events app as Facebook Local, adding bars, food, and nearby attractions.

In retail, Black Friday is around the corner but will sales overtake those from China’s Singles’ Day? Alibaba, the e-commerce Chinese giant, reported over $25.3 billion in sales last weekend as retailers competed for a share of consumer spending. This start-up is making augmented-reality glasses to help the blind see again.

OMD FWD w/c Aug 8th

Just in time for this summer’s Olympics in Rio, Facebook has launched its very own Snapchat-style camera. It comes at a time where, despite strong business success, Zuckerberg’s social platform has recently seen a 21% decline in the amount of posts shared per user and a rise in competition from rival Snapchat. According to the company, “people are increasingly sharing via videos and photos”, so this measure has been taken with the aim of boosting the number of posts uploaded daily. So now, when someone wants to share what’s on their mind, they will now be given the option of an open camera. After all, video is definitely on the rise. Please do share anything interesting you spot on Twitter with #OMDFWD
