You can't ignore video in social media anymore…
Why Video is the Social Media Trend to Watch in 2016
Social video is a social media trend to watch—it has exploded in the past year and we see no reason that it won’t continue to grow exponentially.
Let's talk about something serious for a moment. I was looking at Google's list of the top searches in 2015 for Denmark (https://goo.gl/M6fpDI), and the list of top searched for men and women is a depressing sight.
On the male side, the top searched for man is an astronaut, followed by authors, journalists and two popular musicians.
On the female side, the top searched for woman is a 21 year old politician, who is promoting herself by not wearing any clothes (nobody has any idea what her actual political views are, despite a ton of media coverage), followed by a comedian, a reality star, our former prime minister (which was a woman), and another reality star known for being nude and living in the most shallow way possible.
You see the difference here? Apart from our former Prime Minister, it's exceptionally shallow.
We need to change this. Where are the inspiring women? Why are they not the focus of our attention? Although, that said, where are the inspiring men? Apart from the astronaut, the people on the male list aren't that inspiring either.
In fact, I searched for the 'most inspiring women in Denmark' and, apart from one female entrepreneur, I couldn't find anyone. I then asked on Twitter, but nobody replied. But, I did find one article talking about inspiring Danish women, but that was because of how they were dressed.
So, here is my suggestion for the Danish media (and also the media in every other part of the world). Make it your editorial purpose for 2016 to change this by highlighting and covering inspiring women.
This is a cultural problem that can only be changed by being proactive about it.
When the Canadian Prime Minister was asked why he opted for gender equity in his government, the answer was: 'Because it's 2015' … well, guess what, it's soon 2016!
Maybe it's time we all started thinking this way. Maybe it's time people valued a woman for when she is dressed.

As all other good things under the sun, now your umbrella gets it's own app. Especially if you go for one of Kisha models. Pretty awesome, and a really good deal for everyone who lost a few of those…

Bilden av Sverige är så klart annorlunda i utlandet än vad man generellt tror om man bor här. Man kan väl diskutera var sanningen ligger, men det finns många åsikter/synpunkter där ute som kan vara nyttiga att höra.
Framförallt om man lever i sin egen lilla bubbla utan att fundera på hur både världen och Sverige har förändrats.
P1-journalisterna Magnus Thorén och Jörgen Huitfeldt har gett sig ut i Europa för att reda ut detta och resultatet kan du höra i P1 snart.
Det blir kul och (förhoppningsvis nyttigt) att höra vad folk där ute egentligen tycker om Sverige. Så sätt in en påminnelse i din kalenderapp, Föregångslandet sänds i tre delar i P1: 25 december kl. 17.00, 1 januari kl. 16.00 och 6 januari kl. 16.00
