Facebook's Mark D'Arcy: 'Build for where people are, not where they were'

"If you’re looking at your comms and media plan and it looks suspiciously like the one you had ten years ago, then you’re probably building for where people were,” says Facebook's chief creative officer Mark D'Arcy, who was recently in town to speak to the crowds at ad:tech. And he reckons the only way to change this is by breaking down the legacy structures and strategies that have until now determined how marketers and advertisers do their jobs.

Richie pickings

Facebook announced a stonking third quarter result today, beating analysts' expectations with US$4.5 billion in revenue and a 14 percent increase in the number of monthly active users. But, much more importantly for the world's largest social network, Richie McCaw has finally signed up and got the blue tick after a bit of pressure from the socially savvy Dan 'Mince on Toast' Carter. And, just a couple of days in, he's already close to the 300,000 fan mark. If he keeps that up, he'll soon be getting thousands to post 'authentic' pictures of him in his Versatile house, wearing his Beats headphones and using his favourite teeth whitening brand.

Virtual reality: should brands be first to the punch or is it better to wait and (virtually) see?

There has been a lot of talk and hype about virtual reality in recent times. And just in the past month we’ve had a few sets of cardboard virtual reality goggles sent to the office from PR companies, which shows it’s very much in the public consciousness. One brand, which jumped onto the VR trend early in a marketing capacity, is Contiki. We had a chat to Contiki’s global CEO Casper Urhammer to find out more about the travel brand’s use of it. PLUS: with the amount of research and development going into virtual reality, is it better to wait?

The son guiding the father: The Wireless editor takes a more central role as Radio New Zealand restructures digital teams

Since its inception in 2013, Radio New Zealand's (RNZ) digital brand The Wireless has grown quickly, attracting a new audience of readers that were largely disconnected from the legacy structures of the state broadcaster. This upward trajectory has seen the website's average audience climb from 700 daily users last year to 3,000 this year. And the RNZ executive team is now hoping to spread this success across all its digital properties with the appointment of The Wireless editor Marcus Stickley as the digital features editor. PLUS: digital teams restructure, a tale of two Tobys and a new RNZ website on the cards.

'Like a Girl' and 'Ice bucket challenge' pick up Facebook's Blue Awards, Colenso shortlisted but misses out

The top honour at the Facebook Awards is the Blue Award and this year it went to Leo Burnett and Procter & Gamble for the thought-provoking 'Like a Girl' campaign produced for the Always brand (it also won a gold award). And the Blue for Good Award (which recognises campaigns created for charitable or not-for-profit organisations) went to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a campaign that Facebook says placed only second to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in terms of how many people it reached (it also raised $220 million dollars for the cause). PLUS: Spencer Bailey, the head of Facebook for New Zealand, identifies key creative trends that have taken shape over the last year.
