Mr Corbett had remarried and moved to the US after his first wife Margaret Fitzpatrick, Jack and Sarah’s mother, died from an asthma attack in 2006.The pictures at the centre of Ms Lynch’s appeal to Facebook were posted by Molly Martens as a bitter custody battle unfolded when she challenged her husband’s wishes that his children would return to Ireland in the event of his death.Even after Ms Lynch was awarded custody, Molly Martens continued to post pictures of the children on her Facebook page causing distress to the Corbett family.For almost three years, Ms Lynch pleaded with the social media giant to remove the pictures in light of the pending trial and eventual conviction but faced what she described as mounting bureaucracy.An internal review was launched by Facebook and some of the offending pictures were taken down. However, some images remain online as Ms Lynch issued another plea directly to Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.Read more news here.

7 ways to still do event marketing in 2020

first_img continue reading » This year, we’re all saying adios to traditional event marketing. No more event booths, community festivals or neighborhood fun runs. But that doesn’t mean event marketing cannot or should not happen.Here are seven ways to shift your community marketing events to fit a COVID-19 world.2020 Event Marketing Idea #1: Pay it forwardCommunity events are expensive, and often take up a good chunk of a marketing budget. Don’t scrap that budget item entirely. Instead, take the funds you would have spent on a massive community event and pay it forward. For example, partner with a local coffee shop and put a certain amount toward paying for customers’ coffee, like this Florida credit union did.Tip: Make sure the employees at the local business know exactly what to say to promote your credit union or community bank. Give them coasters or cup sleeves with info on how the consumer can do business with you. Even better, offer an incentive for loan refinancing. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
