The removal of presidents, prime ministers, and top executives is the result of rapidly evolving demographics, shifting cultural attitudes, and social media, which is now rooted in transparency and accountability. This growing...

There is an ongoing shift in power. Widespread social unrest and a growing divide between political leaders and the citizens they serve have devolved into shouting matches on both sides. Social media is now anchored in democracy, which represents the voice of the people and civil society. Governments struggle to manage online discussions, create effective communications strategies, and broadcast narratives that resonate with their constituents. As a result, people have lost confidence in government institutions and no longer trust elected officials. Ineffective governance undermines political stability,...

Despite improved communication technologies and other technical advances, traditional polling continually fails to accurately measure public sentiment or predict election outcomes. Polling fails because it ignores the most critical element that influences voting: identity. In the past year, we’ve been left with our jaws on the floor after surprise election results in the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, and Colombia - just to name a few.

In a highly connected, activist-charged world, commercial marketing matters more than ever before. If leveraged correctly, social media can be a powerful corporate tool. It allows companies to connect with customers directly and provides them with feedback and information to better understand customers and to formulate specific messaging strategies accordingly. Despite this potential, public perception is increasingly mismanaged – and the effects can be detrimental. Incomplete commercial marketing research leads to misinterpreted public sentiment, mangled messaging and cringe-worthy marketing flops, with serious losses even for...

For the first time in decades violent crime is on the rise in U.S. cities across the country. Allegations of police violence and anti-police protests are now commonplace. The situation is becoming unmanageable. And despite the hundreds of millions of dollars that have been spent trying to quell the violence, the situation is only getting worse. Shortly after the first Ferguson riots, ENODO Global warned city administrators of continued violence because their response did not address the root causes of unrest. Very rarely do we consider...

Protests over corruption and impunity are erupting almost daily in countries across the globe. Although tensions between the dominant minority and the marginalized majority have always existed, they are worsening in a globalized world marred by increasing inequality. A new global trend is evolving as populations reject governments that serve a handful of elite. And this trend shows no signs of stopping. The rise in anti-corruption protests demonstrates the strength of public sentiment that animates contemporary security challenges. Latin America is in the midst of an...

Wind farm companies, CEMEX and Vestas, have stolen land and failed to deliver on promises to the indigenous people of Oaxaca, Mexico resulting in increased social tensions, unrest, and protest across the region. Recent articles in the New York Times and the Mexico News Daily have provided political and environmental activists a platform to spread awareness of how CEMEX and Vestas are exploiting the local population of Oaxaca. If managed incorrectly, this information could go viral, get hijacked by activists, escalate into violence, and impact...
