Photos Are Worth A Thousand Views

One of the “live” photos at RLW2010 in Fort Canning

Almost everybody owns a digital camera, be it a compact camera, a mobile phone with an inbuilt camera or a DSLR, yet marketers are not taking full advantage of the simplest of multimedia feature found on Facebook Fan Page.

Updating photos “live” on Facebook Fan Page is one of the services I provide for clients especially during event days. The technology is there and affordable to do so as all you need is a netbook with a sd card reader and mobile wireless connection.

Fans like it because it provides them with an update on Fan Page and the photos “literally'” brings the event to them.

Clients like it the service too as it allow Fans to come back to the photo later to comment about the photo.

This is one way of communicating to the people, your target audience.

To reduce the Fan Page updates as spam, I usually take selected photos that talks to the fans.

It is, however, surprisingly, that are not many who are doing the same for their fan pages. They have photographers, but the photographers often take a few days to weeks before they are uploaded.

They use to say a picture is worth a thousand words. In today’s digital world, a photo is made of a 1000 1’s and 0’s and also can be worth a thousand views.

And if you can get the views now rather than later on the Fan Page, it has the potential of bringing more new fans to your Fan Page too.

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the AVA."

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Those Who Gamble Online Have Poorest Control - NCG Survey In 2012

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to. 
Will launching the online gambling sites be like opening a Pandora Box that will create more issues in the future?

A Very Small Chicken Or An Oversized Popcorn Chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Singapore Facebook Page recently received a complaint of the size of the chicken being served at KFC.

Barnabas Ng took a photo of his chicken from KFC which showed it to be almost the size of the KFC small container. It also looked like a an oversize popcorn chicken.

Wrote Barnabas,

"Hi KFC, is this your new standard size for a chicken? I order 3 piece meal and 2 pieces including this so called original recipe chicken is smaller than the size of the cap of ur small mash potato.

Have you guys try to cut cost so much that you are offering half a size chicken pieces for a full price meal? It is just getting from bad to worse"

KFC Singapore did reply to Barnabas for him to PM his mobile number but Barnabas has yet to receive any calls from KFC Singapore, as of this posting.

Maybe chickens are also shrinking with the current climate change?
