Brands Tackle An Online Foe: The Meme
Memes have long been used on the internet to ridicule the latest celebrity gaffe or highlight a political misstep. However, a surging number of disgruntled consumers are now using memes to target companies to complain about broken products, poor customer service and other negative experiences. We have seen many recent examples ranging from the failed Pepsi ad to the recent disaster that was Fyre Festival, but this isn’t a new problem. When a Tesla Model S electric car erupted in flames in 2013, memes immediately popped up.

Hulu Officially Launches Its Own Live TV Service
Cord cutters (and nevers) rejoice! Hulu is officially launching the beta version of its live TV product today, offering access to more than 50 channels. This follows in the wake of the recently launched YouTube TV and the announcement that Twitter also wants in on original live streaming content.
