Dell's $67 billion purchase of EMC is the biggest pure tech acquisition ever. (AOL's $162 billion buy of Time Warner in 2000 was larger, but Time Warner was a media company, not a tech company.) This chart from Statista shows some of the largest tech acquisitions of the past decade, measured in 2015 dollars.

Samsung Electronics Marketing Budget:













Another great chart from Horace Dediu at Asymco. He looks at the advertising budget of Apple, Samsung, HP, Dell, Microsoft, and Coke. Why include Coke? Because it's a huge advertiser, and its "primary cost of sales is advertising."
As you can see, Samsung is blowing all the companies away in advertising and marketing.
Not a bad price to pay, if it means you get to become the world's biggest smartphone company. Certainly HTC wishes it had Samsung's marketing budget.

Top 100 Social Brands :Dell, Nike and Starbucks Tops




The Industry Breakup of the Top 100 Most Social Companies




Social Brands 100 average sector scores







Top 100 Social Brands


The Social Brands  Website has " launched  The Top 100 table that has ranked the top 100 social media brands and published some key insights on how Companies are using the social Power of The web to influence key decision makers.

The Social Brands 100 has found that 99% of the brands in its ranking are active on Twitter, making it the most popular online outpost for social brands. No real surprise. It is in many ways the easiest to get going on. Not necessarily to do well though.



The survey, which ranked brands based on their ability to engage with connected communities, found geo-location outposts are not yet integrated into the social mix with only 22% of the ranked brands using the likes of Foursquare and Gowalla. More interesting still is that 45% of those who have started these using these services are now inactive.



The Truth is that social media has disrupted branding, andhas passed on the Brand ownership to users .. and not companies. Earlier it was the brand that controlled users. Today its the users that can make and break a brand . It has more than a changed communications environment and some new technology; it’s a profound change in collective behavior


The Social Brands 100 survey was conducted by Headstream over a three month period from November 2010 when nominations were crowdsourced on Twitter.

The Social Brands 100 was compiled over a period of three months with the contribution of an external panel of social experts drawn from business, academia, media and communications, and Brandwatch, the social media analytics data provider.


Researchers quantitatively evaluated a whopping 30,000 tweets, posts, comments and likes and an independent panel of experts scored each brand and social media monitoring partner Brandwatch provided social media data analytics.
