Media Unplugged: Deflating Fake News Hysteria on Facebook

Deflating fake news hysteria on Facebook.

And…

Who needs facts when you have belief?

A shockingly thoughtful conversation about the role of facts in marketing – and in Presidential elections.

Plus, rants and raves about the voter who was determined not to know who the election winner was, the vast time wasted by people looking for something to watch on TV, and the huge number of small businesses that claim to use social media for marketing, yet don’t have their own Facebook page.

It’s episode 54 of Media Unplugged with branding authority Tom Asacker and media strategist Mark Ramsey.
