Jon Laurence has left his role as head of digital for Channel 4 News to take up a new post as deputy editor at US social video publisher NowThis. Relocating to New York, Laurence will oversee “editorial vision and execution”, the company said, as well as managing day-to-day operations in its newsroom. He will also work with the senior leadership team to “develop strategic plans for future growth and expansion into new channels and markets”.
As Facebook users know all too well, there are times when the like button just won't do. You may want to show solidarity with your friends in times of misfortune, but decreeing you 'like' a status update about sad news such as a breakup – or worse – hardly sends out the right message. Well, perhaps an alternative could be on the horizon.
After years of talks Sky and BT have come to an agreement to sell each other’s channels on their TV platforms. The deal means Sky will be able to market and sell the BT Sport service, boasting Premier League and Champions League football, to its customers directly through one single Sky contract.
@weare42group Can see some similarities to Tango, although Irn-Bru's irreverent approach to branding/advertising actually predates that. It's always been a brand apart, I think. Most impressive thing is how it's sustained its positioning and success for so long when others have faltered

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
