This week, Travis and Stewart talk about the world's first dedicated Snapchat conference/awards show and a new solution that solves the ephemeral messaging platform's biggest issue. We then interview Adam Goldstein of Hipmunk -- the travel company and app that was just acquired by Concur -- and talk chatbots, natural language understanding, and the never-satisfied customer. And boy, do those customers ask some challenging questions.
This week, Stewart and Travis talk with Mark Organ about influencer marketing, employee advocacy, and how we can do more important things with our smartphones than play Angry Birds. We then reveal why the Kardashians are in trouble with the FTC, what Instagram are doing to make ads better for everyone, and how Facebook plans to power the new economy of chatbot payments.
In this episode, we talk to Jonathan Abrams of Nuzzel about the startup world, mobile engagement, being cross-platform, and how he makes a 100 percent organic acquisition strategy work. We also ask him a leading question about Mark Zuckerberg, which isn't awkward at all (honest).
Finally, we discuss Travis' trip to China and dig into why WeChat is dominating and what the US can learn from its meteoric rise.
