This move drove more users away toward free alternative blogging sites, such as Xanga and LiveJournal. Lessons for Marketers from Failed Social Media There are several lessons for modern marketers in the stories of these forgotten social networks. We’re not saying you’re at risk of killing your brand, but keeping these ideas in mind may help you maintain and grow your followers and engage with them authentically and helpfully. 1) Meet your audience where they already are. Social networks have failed because brands tried to reinvent something that was already working, or gave users extra work to do in order to participate. Ping asked users to recreate existing social networks on its platform, and Open Diary writers didnt invest in expensive memberships because the site only offered them blog networking. There’s value in this lesson for marketers, too.

Developer Yao Shuen-ting said his team tried to capture the pervasive fear of a time when family members and colleagues were going missing. "We want to let players experience the atmosphere through the characters' perspective ... to come to the conclusion themselves that this was a time when you could die from reading a book," said Yao. Next Tuesday is the 70th anniversary of the start of a brutal massacre of anti-government protesters by KMT troops on Feb 28, 1947, under nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek. It was a precursor to decades of purges under Chiang and his son between 1949 and 1987, when martial law was finally lifted. Victims were often teachers and doctors who were angry with government corruption and turned to underground organisations that created and distributed reading materials seen as subversive. "Detention" developers say they spoke with their own elderly relatives to help recreate the era, finding out finer details such as the kinds of outfits school officials would have worn.

You could always recreate a design. Because of the nature of gears, none of them were unique, one off, designs. A spirograph set like this cannot make the image above [ Image credit : Multicherry CC-BY-SA 3.0] We figured adding some lever arms, and additional geared wheels (compound gears) could achieve the desired result. It turns out that such a machine is called a Cycloid Drawing Machine . But even with this kind of machine, it was possible to replicate a design as often as required. You would fix the gears and levers and draw a design. If the settings are not disturbed, you can make another copy. Here’s a video of a motorized version of the cycloid machine . The eventual answer for making such designs was to use a contraption called as the harmonograph . The harmonograph is unique in the sense that while you can make similar looking designs, it would be practically impossible to exactly replicate them no two will be exactly the same.

' Lord Martin Reesrlach : But how then do you judge the developments we now see in many Western societies? Rees : I think these developments are partly caused by new technologies that have led to new inequalities. Another point is: even if it hasnt increased , people are now more aware of inequality. In sub-Saharan Africa, people see the kind of life that we live, and they wonder why they cant live that kind of life. Twenty-five years ago, they were quite unaware of it. This understandably produces more discontent and embitterment. There is a segment of society, a less-educated one, that feels left behind and unappreciated. That is why I think a huge benefit to society will arise if we have enough redistribution to recreate dignified jobs. Görlach : What political framework do you think of as an ideal environment for science? Rees : In the Soviet Union, they had some of the best mathematicians and physicists, partly because the study of those subjects was fostered for military reasons.

Ticks are well known for their ability to anchor themselves firmly to the skin, so that they can suck blood for several days. This anchoring mechanism is so effective because it is based on a cement-like substance with excellent adhesive properties, so that it works like a dowel for the mouthparts of the tick. Researchers want to study this "tick cement" and recreate it chemically for use in biomaterial research.

Getting out of your warm, cosy bed on those freezing, frosty mornings is truly agonising. And once you're out of bed, it's nigh-on impossible to recreate that toasty feeling save wearing every item of clothing you own. British fashion house Mulberry has created a solution that could actually mimic the effect of staying in bed all day: a duvet poncho. And they're pretty chic for a duvet, at least. SEE ALSO: List lovers rejoice, wearing Post-It notes is officially trendy The ponchos were spotted on the runway at Mulberry's London Fashion Week show in a variety of different styles. Some of the ponchos were floral and quilted like a chintz bedspread. Cute. Read more... More about Watercooler , Lifestyle , Fashion , Fashion Week , and Uk
