10 Yetis Good and Bad Public Relations - Tuesday 13 May 2008

Andy's choice

Good PR
Australian Men! The blokes from Down Under put males from the rest of the globe to shame when it comes to masculinity and today there is a breaking story about a guy who beat off a Great White Shark attack by poking it in the eye!

So not only do Oz blokes beat us at pretty much every sport we play them at, they now fight off wild animals that would usually pose a "life-risk" to men from other nations. no wonder people from their are so bloody positive and friendly.

Bad PR
Friends Re-United has maybe left it too late to recover from the fact that people were sick of paying for their service when the likes of Facebook and MySpace did the same stuff, in a slicker way, for free. The news that the site has now waived its £5.00 charge comes at a time when its membership levels are allegedly in decline. Still, if its owners (ITV) are strapped for cash they can just make more money by doing another dodgy TV phone in.

I reckon Friends Reunited will not be around for much longer.
