Savenkeep Blog Tue, 16 Dec 2014 08:54:29 +0000 en-US hourly 1 New York is rising against the police violence and abuse Tue, 16 Dec 2014 08:54:29 +0000 This Friday, protesters organized a whistle rallies outside the police stations in the New York, it was a start of the second weekend protest, which started against a white patrolman killing an unarmed black man.


Approximately three dozen people marched past public housing projects in Harlem, where it is reported that the police abuse was very extensive before the rally started at the local police station house. In the rally, people blew metal whistles, the voice of the whistles pierced the cold air with a high pitch shrill. The organizer of the rally Kevin Lee, who is 59 years old addressed the protesters that they were there to protest against the policemen who regularly and routinely abuse the people in the housing projects.

The whistle blowing rally was the part of the waves that annoyed the people of the city last week because of the unexpected decision of the grand jury which decided not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who killed Eric Garner in July. The recent demonstrations have attracted fewer people and most of the arrests during the rally have been dropped. According to a poll that was conducted, most of the people living in New York agree that justice was not served in the Garner case.

A poll of 760 adults was conducted by the New York Times and Siena College from 4 to 10 December and it was found that nearly two third of the people participating in the poll believe that the jury should have brought criminal charges on the Officer Daniel Pantaleo.

Thousands of tourists and shoppers scuttled around the Times Square and the protesters were holding absolute black and white signs which included the names of 100 people who are the victims of the police abuse according to the organizers.

More than 100 people gathered in the Lower Manhattan in the cold winter on the steps of the City Hall to start a traditional rally, holding homemade banners which demanded the end of police abuse.

Four tricks to a better Twitter bio for your Customer Care service Tue, 02 Dec 2014 04:06:31 +0000 Twitter has become one service where every business simply must have an official presence.


With millions of people using the service, and a customer engagement ration that borders on addiction, people use Twitter to complain about poor services all too frequently, and if the brand they are facing a problem with is yours, you need to be present to take charge and address the issue promptly.

A number of top brands have set up separate Twitter profiles for customer care. This is a great way to keep your promotion and support team separate, and also lets your main brand profile free of endless conversation tweets.

  • Be direct and spell it out: What is one way to ensure that people know which account offers customer support for your brand? The one with customer support in its name, of course! Make sure that you include something related to support or customer support, in the name of your Twitter account. This also makes the profile one of the top results when people search for you on Twitter.
  • Reaffirm your services in the bio: Twitter is full of parody accounts, that spoof celebrities and brands. So go the extra mile, and also include the fact that you offer customer services for the brand in your Twitter bio.
  • Mention your service timings: Is your customer support available round the clock? Odds are that it isn’t, so mention this in the bio. Twitter is real time and people get impatient. A customer knowing that you are not available, allows you to simply respond when you login next.
  • Offer an alternative: If you have a toll free number, or an email where a customer can find support, include this in the bio, so that when you are unavailable, the customer has other options.
  • Humanize your support: Unless you have an entire team offering support at all hours, mentioning the name of the person who is offering help, lets customers form a personal connection with your brand.

Ukraine Revolution anniversary sees hordes of crowds Tue, 25 Nov 2014 05:02:10 +0000 One year after the protests in Ukraine led to the toppling down of their president who followed Russian agendas, the citizens of the nation came out in large numbers to celebrate the anniversary of this momentous occasion.


When the then President of Ukraine, Mr Viktor Yanukovych made the announcement that he was going to turn down the EU offer for inclusion, and side with Moscow leadership instead, it was met with vehement opposition, and quickly led to full scale protests all over the country.

It started with the gathering in Kiev and quickly spread outwards. Initially peaceful, the protesters went on a violent rampage after the police attacked a group of protesters at a central square with clubs and extreme force on 30th of November. The violence brought in thousands upon thousands of Ukrainians from all over the country who flooded into Kiev and forced President Yanukovych to leave the country and flee to Russia.

The protest had first started in Kiev on 21 November, and this year the day was remembered by the masses as an occasion where they just prevailed over the corrupt and evil. Now dubbed the Day of Dignity and Freedom, November 21, 2014 saw thousand of people who spent the day celebrating one year of freedom from Russian influence, and mourned the loss of protesters who could not survive the police brutality.

The day was documented by Evgeny Feldman, a Russian photographer who was present in Kiev on this day and documented through his work the many ways in which people remembered what all went down in the city a year ago. A huge commemoration was held for the Euromaidan and it was full to bursting with all the people who took part in the event. Protesters who took part in the revolution last year were present in huge numbers, and spent the day in remembrance of the fallen Heavenly Hundred who lost their lives in the initial few days of the protest after the swift government backlash.

7 Social Media mistake you simply cannot make! Tue, 18 Nov 2014 06:10:14 +0000 Social Media has become crucial to creating and managing a comprehensive brand image today, and is an immensely powerful tool which you can harness to great effect! At the same time, it is better to not have a social media presence at all, than to have one that is poorly managed.


Here are the top mistakes, no social media manager can afford to make:

1)      Going in without an engagement strategy: When you put up a brand page on a social network, people are going to interact with you. Whether they are complaining or praising you, you need to have a firm plan to respond to both. Just as important is to know what to say before you say it.

2)      Being inconsistent: Create a theme for your updates, and set a firm tone. Then follow it with consistency. Never make the brand appear like it is out of its depths.

3)      Using no social media tools, or using too many tools: Either end of this scenario will end up becoming a nightmare real quickly. Most tools have different metrics, so pick the one that you like and then stick to it.

4)      Picking the wrong network: Does your brand really need a Pinterest page? Is your Instagram feed identical to your Flickr feed? Don’t spread yourself too thin, and pick platforms that you need.

5)      Not responding to users: A social media account is different from a website, and people expect you to interact when you have a social presence. Being playful, doesn’t hurt, but do not end up spamming everyone that follows you either!

6)      Using platform incorrectly: Twitter is for short bursts of communication, while Pinterest is for image content only. A little cross posting is nice, but use the platforms in the way they were intended to be used.

7)      Sharing the wrong links: Referral traffic is the Holy Grail for which most brands create social profiles. Don’t ruin the opportunity by sending out an incorrect link.

The FCC set to provide an opportunity to the internet providers to become MPVDs Thu, 30 Oct 2014 15:12:12 +0000 Cable operators always had an upper edge over the internet providers when it comes to television. On Tuesday, FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler reported that he has prepared a proposal that will surely change the environment for the Internet Companies and give them opportunity for becoming multi-channel video providers (MVPDs).


Before adoption, this rule will undergo voting for the adoption, then there will be a comment period in which all the voters will provide their suggestions and critics and the after the amendment of the rule there will be another voting. It will bring more competition to the market, which traditionally has been a closed market and will bring the Internet based companies such as Aereo and Ivi in the MVPDs market, which were previously precluded from becoming MVPDs.

Tom Wheeler in a blog post compared the decisions about granting permission to satellite companies for becoming MVPDs. He also referred changes as technical adjustments will eliminate the technological considerations while determining whether a company is MVPDs or not.

This move is warmly welcomed by the Aereo and is supporting it, the founder and CEO of the company, Chet Kanojia released a statement that says, the way people are consuming the television is changing rapidly, but on the other hand our laws and regulations are not according to this change. By proposing this rule FCC has taken a meaningful step to bring more competition in the video market, as it is a common saying that when the competition increases, the consumers always end up winning.

The rule comes with possibility of Aereo to become a cable provider, which will not only give a new life to the company but also bring existing cable companies on their feet. The proposal intends to make the technology neutral by removing the differences between facility-based and virtual MVPDs. If the rule is adopted, there will be a possibility of big giants of the market such Google, Apple and Amazon may also become MPVDs.
