Data marketing seems like an answered prayer for marketers everywhere, with hard numbers and facts to prove why a campaign might work or an idea might not fly to the business and finance units.Yet, while data marketing might be the best thing since sliced bread, the human factor still remains one of the most critical parts, according to Elissa Fink, chief marketing officer, Tableau.It can inform us and help us make better judgements, but at the end of the day it is the humans that have to make the decision and calls on where to invest, what markets matter and how to use resources,” said Fink.“I think now more than ever the human element is more important, because the data does not tell the whole story, you need human judgement to interpret, understand, compare and contrast, to make decisions,” she added.Instead, data should be used to help marketers mature, imparting knowledge to a marketer to make better judgements, as well as deepen their experience.A lot of times people may be thinking they are making a judgement call, it’s based on experience and data I think can give you raid experience,” said Fink.

Samsung might have another smartphone fiasco on its hands as a growing number of customers are complaining their brand new Galaxy S8 appears to have an unusual red tint on the screen.While the flagship is yet to launch worldwide this Friday, the company has begun shipping devices to South Korean customers who pre-ordered the device, but it seems Samsung is off to a rocky start.Numerous owners took to social media to complain about a mysterious red hue on their displays, CNET reports.A spokesperson for the tech titan has since confirmed the issue, claiming the pinkish tint has nothing to do with hardware and can be fixed by tweaking the phone’s screen settings.However, Korean S8 owners have since rushed to Instagram as well as local forums like Ruliweb and PPomppu to cry out they have been unable to get rid of the tint by meddling with the settings.Research analyst Neil Shah has since told CNET the issue could stem from the S8’s ‘Deep Red’ OLED tech, which could purportedly “make the usual whites look reddish” as a result of “software calibration issue[s].”

After copying Snapchat’s marquee feature — the full-screen disappearing story — Instagram is moving on to Pinterest.Today Instagram released a new feature called Collections, enabling users of the Facebook-owned network to organize photos and videos they find into categories, much like Pinterest’s “boards.”While Pinterest did not invent the folder (and that’s what a board is, a folder for photos and links), the company brought social bookmarking into the mainstream.And now Instagram, as much a discovery network as it is a photo sharing tool, is closing in on Pinterest’s turf.

Hyland’s, one of the country’s leading makers of homeopathic products, is finally bowing to pressure from the Food and Drug Administration by recalling its infant teething tablets, which have been linked to severe illnesses and deaths of infants.The FDA has been investigating the issue for years and has received reports of more than 400 cases of infant illnesses, some involving seizures, fever, and vomiting, plus 10 infant deaths.In January, the agency confirmed that the tablets contained widely inconsistent levels of the toxic substance belladonna, aka deadly nightshade.Poisoning by belladonna produces symptoms in line with those reported in the sickened infants.In one FDA report, a mother wrote, "My daughter had a seizure, lost consciousness, and stopped breathing about 30 minutes after I gave her three Hyland’s Teething Tablets... She had to receive mouth-to-mouth CPR to resume breathing and was brought to the hospital.”Hyland's has yet to take responsibility or acknowledge the potential danger to its customers.
