KONZUM CATCHES POKÉMANIA, OPENS FIRST POKESTOP IN CROATIA
Konzum is the first retail chain in Croatia which has joined the Pokemania, and the first Pokéstop has been set on Friday in front of the Super Konzum in Radnička street, where between 11:00 and 13:00 hours numerous Pokémon and their Zagreb catchers arrived.
The news that the Pokémon are hanging out in front of Konzum spread at lightning speed, so a crowd of Pokélovers quickly swelled in front of Konzum Pokéstop to grab as many Poké balls. All who weren’t able to come to Radnička will certainly cheer the news that they will soon be able to catch their favorite Pokémon in other Konzum stores across Croatia. (Poslovni.hr)

GOOGLE UNDER EU INVESTIGATION FOR THE THIRD TIME
Regulatory agency of the EU has launched a third investigation against Google, accusing it of blocking competitors in the business of search advertising.
The European Commission has also stepped up the existing charges against the most popular internet browser, accusing it of favoring its own service for purchase, compared to rivals.
“Google has come up with many innovative products that have made a difference to our lives. But that doesn’t give Google the right to deny other companies the chance to compete and innovate,” EU Commissioner for competition policy Margrete Vestager said at a press conference in Brussels.
The Commission said that Google has sent two announcements with objections. In the new document, the Commission accuses Google of abusing its dominant position by artificially preventing other websites to display ads on search results pages.
The company could be fined ten percent of its global turnover if found guilty of violating antitrust regulations.
Google said it would examine the objections of the European Commission and issue a statement in the coming weeks.
RESULTS OF THE “EUROPEAN COMMUNICATION MONITOR 2016” ANNOUNCED
European Communication Monitor brings the latest information and trends in the practice of strategic communication across Europe. ECM 2016 is based on the responses of 2,710 communication professionals from 43 European countries.
The basis of this year’s study was the use of Big Data, and how and to what extent communication experts across Europe use the vast amount of data and information. As much as 72.3% of respondents claim that in the future Big Data will have a big impact on the communications industry, on the other hand, only 23% of respondents believe they truly understand the management of a large number of data and information.
Among respondents there is a perceived importance of algorithms for strategic communication, so the importance of adapting the algorithms for social networks was recognized by 73.8% of respondents in Croatia. Communication management is used in all the surveyed countries, including Croatia, and the so-called operational management is used by almost 38.6%, which is followed by coordinating business activities and employees with 24.7%. Also, one of the interesting facts is the importance of communication channels in Europe, specifically in Croatia. So, still, the greatest importance is given to television and radio content, with 86.9%, while the smallest importance is given to corporate publications, with 41%.
This prestigious research was conducted by a group of renowned university professors in collaboration with the European Association of Communication Directors (EACD), under the auspices of Prime Research International.
