Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Strong4Life campaign features obese children uncomfortable with their weight. The ads feature obses children with headlines such as “WARNING: It’s hard to be a little girl when you’re not.”
At first glance, these ads are shocking, and I wonder if they can actually work. What would the ads do to a child’s self esteem? According to an NPR article, critics warns that children who felt uncomfortable with their weight are less likely to engage in social activities with their peers, like playing outside.
But the point of these ads aren’t to scare kids, but rather their parents. In the TV spot, a child asks “Mom, why am I fat?”
The scare tactics reinforce a sense of alarm among viewers, which I think could be effective. The state of Georgia did their research and found that 75% of parents deny that their kids have a problem. Do you respond to scare tactics in ad campaigns?
The growing amount of criticism surrounding the ads could cause serious problems for the campaign. Most parents genuinely care about their children, and I hope they care enough to curb poor diet habits as well.
Google Map Maker expands Google Maps from an infomative media with potential for users to share, to media that relies on collaborative use. Imagine if Google Map Makers partnered with a LBS like Foursquare. Users could create trails to follow, and remove fake locations. I think there’s a great potential to introduce its own LBS system as well.
One of the features Google Map Makers advertises in the short Youtube video is the ability to map out a campus. I added the Chatlos Communication Building to the Florida Southern College campus. Check back in a few days to see if you can find it!
I imagine that with the summer quickly approaching, more of my peers will add locations to our campus. To date, there’s one specific location mapped on the campus. Do you plan on adding any locations?

Google : 1
Facebook : 0
Today everyone asks did you “like” my status or “like” my pictures? The real question is will “like” still even be used? Today Google announced its rival version of the like button, the +1. This Google button will allow anyone to basically “like” something when searching for it.
The results from searching for something on Google are in the thousands, but with this +1 system you will be able to see how many people found a certain site helpful. These tips will not only make your life easier but will give you the motivation to +1 a site that not many people have visited.
The goal is to +1 every site on the web allowing users to make an easier decision when it comes to questions of uncertainty while surfing the internet based off other peoples recommendations and +1′s. You not only share this information with your friends and family but with the world, telling everyone I approve of this website!
I’m sure there are some kinks, such as how to regulate who +1′s a site more than once or how do you + 1 something if you want you identity to be private. So is time running out for the facebook “like” or is +1 going to sink? Time will ultimately decide for us but until then I think people will use both services.
