Social Media Is Showing Us The Future Of TV

Social Media Is Showing Us The Future Of TV | Adult learning and reading | Scoop.it

When viewers are engaged with what's on TV, they turn to Twitter to talk about it. While that may seem like a no-brainer, one implication might surprise you.

These research results show that the more engrossed a given viewer is, the more likely he or she is to tweet about it -- which contradicts the idea that social media is a distraction for the bored and disengaged. The results also support the notion that today’s consumers are truly looking to share their best experiences, even those they’re just watching on television.

All this hints at a future full of potential for advertisers, television producers and technology companies: one where shared experiences and contextual conversations make everything a little more personal and powerful....

Is Social Media a distraction, or does it enhance the experience of watching our favourite shows?

Owen Kim's curator insight, April 2, 2:04 AM

People now express their thoughts and feelings in social media as if they are talking to people. Although social media is something not physical, people feel it as a part of them that they post and write almost everything they would do and say in real life. Maybe others can know more about them by reading their posts which is positive but if some sensitive opinions were posted and feels uncomfortable to others, it may break out into a conflict which is bad.

Whether you call it PEOS or PESO, the "P" (which stands for Paid in the Paid, Earned, Owned, and Shared media segmentation) became a lot more interesting on November 14 of last year. On that day, Facebook said that they were going to rework how "promotional posts" (i.e. posts from brand pages) appeared on followers' news feeds, starting January 1. Essentially, Facebook made post boosting (paying for views) almost a requirement in order for brands to see the same results they saw just a month or two before.

The Un-Tapped Value of Employee Social Capital

The Un-Tapped Value of Employee Social Capital | Adult learning and reading | Scoop.it
Why should any business owner like social media? Because social media connects people – employees to other employees, employees to customers, business and IT decision makers and vice versa, customers to customers, and so on.

Let’s forget the public giants, Facebook and Twitter, for a moment and focus on the social media technologies that connect employees of large companies to each other, inside the company. In this scenario, social paradise is when your social technologies (think company blog and micro-blog), are adopted by your employees and help form social capital among 10s or 100s of thousands of them on a global scale, like at my company, Dell.

Why should you care? Social capital (really not an oxymoron!) is a critical fuel for corporate knowledge sharing, innovation and growth. What company does not want that?

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, July 29, 2014 9:58 AM

This article comes to me by way of my friend, GeekMom.com editor Andrea Schwalm. 

 

I actually feel outraged reading this. The US wonders why it's behind, and when measures are put in place to provide tools to help kids keep up or get ahead, they aren't working. In this case, it looked like the school district didn't come up with a definitive plan before distributing the laptops out. Kids will be kids, but at the same time, I get the feeling that they haven't been taught that laptops are not toys, but equipment or instruments, and need to be cared for. If a teenager had a high-end smartphone, you KNOW there would be consequences for needing to fix or replace one of those! 

 

My son's small private school gives all the kids laptops--MacBook Air laptops, in fact. They distribute them in September, and take them back in the summer. Every year, parents have to signed waivers and such that say that if something happens to the laptop, especially if the kid is given permission by the parent to bring the laptop home, then any repairs or replacement is on the parent.  The same should happen with school districts as well. I guarantee that a lot more laptops would come back undamaged if parents knew that if something happened to them, they need to replace the machine. Many families can't afford one, so it promotes responsibility. 

 

With a better plan in place on how laptops and tablets can be used in the classroom and for school work, with a written understanding that the device is not a toy but rather an expensive tool to be used and mastered, then perhaps there's hope. The article mentions that other places have made it work. Perhaps the districts where this implementation did not work need to take few lessons from those where it did work. You can't implement something like this without careful consideration and a plan. You need a strategy, and it doesn't sound like Hoboken really thought it out. 

 

Perhaps rather than throwing all those laptops out, they should donate them to another school district who has a plan and be more appreciative of the chance to get kids up to speed in technology. 

 

(Oh, and yes, teacher/staff training is important and lacking, but I could go on about that too. That's part of having a good plan, after all. )
