    Couldn’t agree more with the segmentation vs mass marketing discussion point. There is too much targeting going on that reduces management & cost economies of scale. More importantly the potential to create cross-cultural, cross-market brands is diminished if both the product and message is too differentiated. People need both brands to feel different, special and individual, but also to feel safe, inclusive and popular, this is where mass marketing comes in.
