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.

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...
