1-800-Flowers, Food Network and others wrap up Messenger for ... - Mobile MarketerSunday, February 11, 2018
Day-themed dishes. IHeartRadio's bot lets listeners play a variety of Valentines-themed stations like "Slow Jams Radio" and "Love Songs Radio," which will be hosted by singer Kelly Clarkson until Feb. 18.Insight:The news points to how brands can leverage messaging apps to create one-to-one experiences for holiday's like Valentine's Day. Beyond that, these activations also suggest that brands are looking beyond creating interactive dialogs on Messenger and are increasingly consider how to drive purchases via the platform. This year, U.S. consumers are expected to spend an average of $143.56 on the holiday, up from $136.57 last year, according to the National Retail Federation.Facebook in the past couple of years has urged brands to create chatbots for its platform to open up direct lines of convenient communication with consumers. While chatbots have been criticized by some for their limited functionality and inability to hold a natural conversation with users, the technology continues to evolve with machine learning that makes bots smarter and more adaptive without the need for human intervention. Messenger also has evolved to provide a wider range of functions, although the company is also making an effort to streamline the app after letting it get too cluttered with bots, ads, alert and other features.As the love-themed holiday approaches, not everyone is showing the love for Facebook, as many advocacy groups and parents issue a growing chorus of criticism after the social giant created a messaging platform aimed at children under 13. Messenger Kids has aroused the ire of child advocacy groups and analysts of the tech industry, especially after toymaker Mattel pulled an "Amazon Alexa-esque" device for children for fear that it would spy on kids and use the data collected for ad targeting.

Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”

KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted. In Kentucky, Becky's Flower Basket has received backlash even though its business has no affiliation with Cudd's Texas shop, according to a WKYT report. Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business. "Very violent language, I'll put it that way," Sergent said. The FBI had not listed the exact charges Cudd faces as of Wednesday afternoon.

Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php
