The Human Factor in the Age of Technology

By Lumiere, published on Apr 25, 2014

...HUMAN RIGHTS.

In 2010, NYC Shelled out almost a Billion in Civil Suits and $735 Million to Settle Civil Rights Cases Against NYPD in 2012. Which is forecast to rise to $815 million by 2016. The NYPD forgot to keep any of this in mind when they launched their Social Media campaign on Twitter. NYPD asked for images and the Public Uploaded images of Police Brutality. Modern Technology took the NYPD by surprise because the Public used it to call attention to a Pervasive Problem with Internal Corruption within the Police Department.

Being a Leader of Integrity is the ability... (more)

Daft Dinosaurs

By Anastasia , published on Feb 8, 2013

...to the pompous and the high-minded in the fashion described. They may also have done so in their millions, but if they did they did it, by and large, privately and in isolation from one another, especially if their destinies were governed by despots.

Now it’s different; now we have Twitter, millions of raspberries blown in the face of the latest absurdity from those formerly used to public reverence. It’s a form of freedom that manages to transcend the limits imposed on everyday expressions of dissent. Even those who live in authoritarian states, at least where tweeting is... (more)

The Base Alloy of Hypocrisy

By Anastasia , published on Aug 2, 2012

Twitter is for the birds. Some of the birds, as we surely all know, have bird brains. The small-minded, the stupid, the mean-spirited and the down right vicious have always been with us; it’s just that Twitter and other social media give their ugly outpourings added effect. But how far should this be allowed to affect the rest of us; how far should the poison spread by trolls be allowed to impact on free expression?

The question is wholly pertinent, I assure you, because the police in England are now arresting and prosecuting tweeters. Last week a seventeen-year-old was detained... (more)

Keeping Professional & Personal Social Media Accounts Apart

By Miguel Salcido, published on Jul 11, 2012

Nowadays, it’s difficult to explore the Internet and not encounter a social networking or sharing function. With the added factor that many business professionals have a Facebook account, Twitter profile, LinkedIn page, and so on, individuals continue to grow connected online. With the use of social media becoming more and more prolific, the distinction between the professional and personal remains blurry. Stories of the two clashing constantly emerge, whether from managers asking for Facebook passwords or companies monitoring employee Internet use. How do you make sure that your personal life,... (more)

Social Marketing = Viral Book Sales? Think again!

By Shane Joseph, published on Jun 15, 2012

...problem with my marketing message, or my books suck, or else others in my situation are keeping mum.Here are some of my observations on book marketing in the social media universe (and I would welcome any thoughts to the contrary):

1) We have generated too much “noise” in the FB and Twitter universes. People are Twittered-out, or Facebook-whacked. The more followers you have, the more perishable your messages. If you don’t get a “like” or “re-tweet” within two minutes of your post, that post is history. Even keeping personal favourite lists ends up in clutter after... (more)

I must be the world’s worst target for advertizing

By Shane Joseph, published on Apr 29, 2012

...with high disposable income, in their mid fifties, who are empty nesters etc. And if I am the worst target, are others in my cohort becoming, like me, deaf and blind to advertizing?

Okay, here’s what I do: I skip through the daily newspaper, reading only the headlines (conditioned by Twitter, of course), pausing only at a few to read further if they interest me. I do not notice the adverts, especially the full page glossy ones that act like warning lights for me to skip to the next page. TV commercial breaks are for taking a personal break, and there are many breaks to be taken... (more)

Death Tweet

By Anastasia , published on Feb 23, 2012

That’s a tweet by Hamaza Kashgari, a particularly brave Saudi Arabian-based journalist, poet and political activist. Already in trouble for stating this obvious truth, he chirruped a couple of tweets too loud; he tweeted about the Prophet Mohammed. Rather naïve of him, I would have thought, given where he lives and given what he knows, given that this is a subject likely to whip up all sorts of dreadful atavistic passions in a dreadful antediluvian kingdom.

He is young, only twenty-three. It was all innocent enough, but there is no innocence in this desert hellhole. Here it is in... (more)

These aren't the followers you're looking for...

By Donna Brown, published on Oct 27, 2011

Not getting followed back? It might be that your approach to Twitter is just not making you an appealing follow prospect. Have a look at five reasons why you might be lacking Twitterpeal…

1) No avatar… The dreaded ‘Twitter egg’ suggests a temporary account and has become a warning sign of an ‘undesirable account’. You don’t have to upload a personal photo but any image shows that you’ve taken a little time and suggests a commitment to your account that most true spammers wouldn’t have.

2) Your profile is empty… Empty profiles or profiles with one meaningless word (or even just... (more)

Does Google Know Where It is Going with Google+?

By TonyBerkman, published on Oct 5, 2011

...Enter the Google "+1" widget that is starting to appear on many websites. It seems that about 2 years ago Google new a change was necessary and immiment.

The reasons are myriad including the backlink algorithm collapse, the threat of social media behoemeths such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and the syphoning off of traffic from Google searches. Facebok was also tormenting Google with statements such as in a year or two you won't need Google anymore since everything will be done on Facebook including search. With these elements in place it is easy to imagine a... (more)
