Victoria Cross recipient, Boeing strategist and business leader, Mark Donaldson and I got chatting at the Beard Season launch with Jimmy Niggles, Hamish Blake, Wippa and a bunch of other revellers a few months back and bonded over a cheeky beer or two on a tall ship on Sydney Harbour (hence the nautical theme of the pics below).

For those who have listened to my Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! episode with Andrew Hansen from The Chaser, will know my passion for my grandfather, whom I never knew, his service in the Middle East and PNG in Kokoda in World War II, the importance of ANZAC Day to me and understanding (in my eyes) what it actually means to be Australian after my trip to Gallipoli for the 85th anniversary of the ANZAC Day dawn service in Turkey in 2000.

Corporal Mark Donaldson, VC is an Australian soldier and a recipient of the Victoria Cross for Australia, the highest award in the Australian honours system.

Trooper Donaldson (his rank at the time) was a member of the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) when he exposed himself to enemy fire to protect injured troops and then rescued an interpreter under heavy enemy fire in the Battle of Khaz Oruzgan during Operation Slipper, the Australian contribution to the War in Afghanistan. He was presented with the decoration by the Governor-General of Australia, Quentin Bryce, in a ceremony in Canberra on 16 January 2009.

On today’s show we delve into vast-ranging chats including Mark’s earliest ever memory, his work with Boeing, happy memories of Afghanistan, the people and experiences that have shaped his outlook on life.

Super inspiring chats. Let’s get into it!

Australia is the 2nd country in the world to launch “Messenger Day” | Facebook’s new feature!

Posted on

pjimage-1

Facebook “Messenger Day” rolled out in Australia on Tuesday, making it the 2nd country in the world that Facebook have launched their new social story-telling functionality on Messenger.
 
Clearly inspired by the success of Snapchat and following the launch of Instagram Stories, Facebook has focused the testing and release of this new feature in international markets where Snapchat usage isn’t nearly as high as Facebook Messenger, in an attempt to build an audience of users who will then influence other users to adopt this new feature (Poland was the test market out of interest).
 
As always when Facebook updates their apps, you’ll see a backlash from a proportion of users who struggle with change and love a good whinge, however interestingly enough, this time I’ve observed that same backlash from a proportion of friends of mine who actually work in the digital media industry like myself and/or are regularly passionate first adopters.
 
The feedback from the younger demographic of social media users is that “we’re already time poor as it is and don’t have time for Snapchat, Instagram Stories AND Messenger Day.” To them, this is also clearly just a blatant copy of existing technology that’s working… which Facebook and Instagram put their hands up and freely admit that it is.
 
“Just like when Facebook invented the [News] Feed, and every social product was like, ‘That’s an innovation, how do we adapt that to our network?’ You’re going to see stories pop up in other networks over time, because it’s one of the best ways to show visual information in chronological order”
– Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom when Instagram launched “Instagram Stories”.
 
I’m not saying that Facebook Messenger Day doesn’t have a place for a proportion of the digital market, as no doubt, as a number of existing Facebook Messenger users will adopt Messenger Day into their lives, however lot of my younger friends use Snapchat as their main tool of communication (including more than text messages), so Messenger Day certainly won’t be something that replaces Snapchat (in the short-term at least) for the youth market.
 
It does definitely make sense for an organization like Facebook to adopt game-changing digital technology from competitor platforms that fits with current social media behaviours and more personalised storytelling, whilst still sinking millions into development of new Facebook-powered social media apps and features, however they need to keep their eye on the ball and continue to develop different innovations in the medium to long-term to “push” their relevance with their younger audiences.
 
Brands and agency media buyers beware. This “new” Facebook Messenger Day feature won’t necessarily be the magic solution for reaching 14-25s with your marketing, if and when it becomes available for advertisers. 
 
But Facebook do have money to burn, so watch this my space 😉😜 for newer technologies that they develop that might be!
