Google is Brandchannel’s Most Impactful Brand Name of 2006
This year, 3,625 branding professionals ranked Google once again ahead of Apple, followed by YouTube (which Google now owns) and Wikipedia. Ian at Green Gathering points out that with this announcement, "user generated websites and social media have finally hit the big time."
Tom Taulli notes that these networking newcomers just don't have to spend lots of money on advertising — really loyal users are building their brand names for them.
Meanwhile, LogoBlog has posted The Best of 2006 Logo Trends: seems like "embellishing" is three spots above "splatting." What would product naming be without "vivid" or "glowing" logos? Nice piece.
