Underpinning shareability with data
We live in a data-driven world; one in which data is finding its way into virtually every decision-making process. Some things are still considered out of reach, even if that pool is growing ever smaller. Making a viral video used to fall into that category, with viral success being a bit like a lightning strike; you might know when the conditions were favourable, but you would have no way of knowing if, or where, or when it would happen.
Yet Unruly are a rapidly growing company bringing that predictability to online video. Back in 2006 they created the Viral Video Chart by tracking every post of a video with its URL. All that data, going back so far, gives them an unrivalled data asset. It is the largest database of video sharing anywhere, with insights that are or prime interest to brands. (more…)

As you read this page, 5.5 million children around the world are losing their childhood to slavery. They are being beaten, abused and raped. They are forced to work in brothels, mines, brick kilns, fishing boats, and hotels. They work behind closed doors as domestic laborers. Many become soldiers, brides, and drug dealers. Child slavery is at an all-time high. Every day, children as young as five are sold on the black market at prices lower than cattle. Once in the hands of their masters, they are forced to work for up to 20 hours per day. Girls are particularly at risk, as they are the most vulnerable to sexual exploitation, one of the most lucrative forms of slavery.
#Choosetosee, a new strategic initiative to fight child slavery by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, is part of End Child Slavery Week, an international campaign led by 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, who has helped rescue more than 80,000 children from slavery at brick kilns, quarries, factories, sweatshops and farms.
