Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence August 2011

Who says August's the quiet month for news? Here in the UK, riots revealed the worst and best of social media: large-scale looting was organised at least in part via secure Blackberry Messenger, while large-scale clean-ups were enabled through Twitter hashtags. Watching criminals exploit the privacy of BBM was as depressing as the relief felt from watching the publicly spirited clean-up. All a strong reminder that social activism through social media and messenger tools will be a permanent feature of society from now on whether in Libya or London.

Digital media battle lines continue to shift, as Google became a fully-fledged mobile maker after the Motorola acquisition, and a fully-fledged TV platform with the UK announcement of Google TV. Facebook got serious about location, dropping 'Places' for a universal location tagging system, adding mobile messaging in its bid to stifle Twitter and FourSquare, and ramping up its privacy along the way.

On a sad note, Apple lost its 'rock star nerd', as Steve Jobs stepped away from the helm. Jobs is a true digital revolutionary who pioneered game-changers like the iPod, iPhone and iPad - a real icon of our times who has materially affected all of us. While Apple's strategy looks confident to continue, we're still unconvinced by the shock moves at heavyweight tech firm Hewlett-Packard to ditch mobiles, tablets and PCs to become a standalone software maker.

Also in this month's edition, some eye-opening stats we think you'll enjoy: Amazon accounts for 1 in 5 of all web visits, the UK's Daily Mail became the second most read news site in the world. Which paper came first? You'll have to read on...

Has Google finally got social right? Early signs from our research indicate that the more nuanced approach of Google+ more to social might finally give Facebook something to worry about, after the failures of Buzz and Wave. Our trackers show Google now attracts 1 billion visitors a month- the audience is there if the product is good enough. And if Facebook needs any reminding that the mighty can fall, this month saw News Corp offload former social media king MySpace for a pittance.

As opportunities for digital marketers grow, so do the legal pitfalls. This month saw ICANN approve '.anything domains'. We're split on whether this helps brands or leaves them exposed to squatters - but without a clear online brand strategy it will be an uncomfortable year for marketing directors. Meanwhile the new EU cookie law, which effectively makes most UK websites illegal without an opt-in for tracking, has been deferred for a year. Are your strategies in place?

Headlines below, full stories at the end of the click, and if you'd like a deep dive briefing on a key theme then let us know what you'd like researched by setting your choices here:

For the movie rental industry, the news of closure at Blockbusters' 609 stores this month marks the end of an era. In the same week Amazon took on Netflix with streaming service for Prime customers, and online music streaming giant Spotify landed a $1bn valuation (thanks to the Russian Facebook backers). Channels are changing and most brands are well behind getting their own channel mix lined up with what consumers are asking for.

No surprise then that Google is taking on Apple with the 'One Pass' system - a one-stop destination where users can pay for publications online. Listen out for this becoming fused with YouTube to enable the migration of pay-TV; a step that will destabilise part of the value chain and economics in the pay-TV markets. And with new research showing almost three-quarters of European web users download or watch online video there will be no shortage of viewers.

Whatever your digital content strategy, the shift to video needs attention. So if you missed our online video special report, then here's the link.
