What Made Our Thumb Stop? #2
The U.K.’s royal family is looking for someone to help manage its online presence.
Time for a career change! Who wouldn’t love looking after the Queens social media platforms? Imagine a boomerang of you and the Queen sipping tea, darling and patting her corgis.
According to the job spec, the role will involve “new ways to maintain the Queen’s presence in the public eye and on the world stage” through social media and other online platforms.
That isn’t even the best bit. You’ll have an office address that will envy many: Buckingham Palace.
You have until May 26 to apply. Good luck!

Uber has launched a new 'quiet' mode for passengers who would like silent rides.
We’ve all been there. We’re mid Uber ride and ask, “what time do you finish tonight, mate?” whilst quietly hoping that that would be the extent of your conversation. But, is an in-app function such as ‘quiet’ mode the route we need to take?
We’ve certainly seen positive results from using the mute button on social. Take Instagram by example - when you want to follow someone but would rather not have their content front of mind, the mute function comes in particular handy. No offence taken and your newsfeed is back to what you want to see.

What are your thoughts? Would you click the quiet option, or do you love a chat on your route?

#MentalHealthAwarenessWeek – we applaud you.
As a social media agency, we want to have a viewpoint on Social Media & Mental Health, because let’s be honest the two seem to get a bad wrap most of the time. However, using Social Media as a platform to share your voice and raise awareness is the kind of social media we like to see. We had numerous thumb stopping moments last week and so, here’s a few #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek stories that deserve a round of applause…
As well as being an incredibly powerful video the headline and visual cue grab your attention almost immediately. We all experience anxiety and self-esteem struggles in the world of likes, shares ad comments. It’s important that these videos are shared and are visible for people to understand that you, in-fact ARE enough.

Crazy Head Comics
This chick is our kinda cool. @crazyheadcomics rainbow illustration of one-liners perfectly depicts nine different mental health illnesses without the BS. It’s totally comment worthy, give her IG a follow for some cleverly illustrated reminders that’s we are all awesome, quirks and all.
Cheers to Hawksmoor 🥂
Authenticity wins. Hawksmoor showed us that it’s not always about the glossy that comes out trumps.
Sometimes sharing some mishaps isn’t always a bad idea. Accepting an honest mistake and sharing online was a great opportunity to showcase the company culture and rapidly gained public support.
That's all folks!
