Here’s what you need to do. Allocate both brand and digital budgets for your social strategy. If you need it, bring in help from outside. Create a distinct and clear initiative for your brand. Set clear and measurable goals. Use the latest technology to manage and measure your social media ROI. And for optimum results, be active on multiple social networks.
This infographic from Wildfire proposes 6 best practices for social media success.
Twitter chats are powerful. They’re an opportunity to build deeper trust with your audience, build up your brand, and ultimately help your bottom line. They offer a huge bang-for-your-buck, and not nearly enough companies are taking advantage of them.
So many of us are connected and/or using our connected devices regularly. Some might say we / you are addicted to them and suffer withdrawal symptoms when we forget them or leave home home without them.
So then, how do we stay focused in this “age of distraction”? Jane Genovese writes on the Learning Fundamentals website on ‘how to focus in the age of distraction‘ and produced this excellent mind-map of Leo Babauta’s eBook “Focus: A simplicity manifesto in the age of distraction”.
Genovese highlights her analysis of the book and the changes she’s making to sharpen her focus, including:
- Create habits and/or rituals to focus your mind.
- Manage email (expectations) and switch it off if necessary.
- Make time to reflect & review.
- Admit you’re online too much, and take steps to remedy.
- Digital detox: take time away and switch off.
- Work ethics (simplify working practices based on distractions, movement, time, etc.)
The Semantic Web may have failed, but higher intelligence is coming to applications anyway, in another form: Cognition-as-a-Service (CaaS). And this may just be the next evolution of the operating system.
CaaS will enable every app to become as smart as Siri in its own niche. CaaS powered apps will be able to think and interact with consumers like intelligent virtual assistants — they will be “cognitive apps.” You will be able to converse with cognitive apps, ask them questions, give them commands — and they will be able to help you complete tasks and manage your work more efficiently.
A hashtag is simply a way for people to label and search for social media updates. It may be a trending topic such as #cybermonday or a campaign-specific label such as a discount or campaign name. In most social networks if you click on the hashtag you see updates where others have used it.
It's relatively easy to imagine a new medicine, a better cure for some disease. The hard part, though, is testing it, and that can delay promising new cures for years. In this well-explained talk, Geraldine Hamilton shows how her lab creates organs and body parts on a chip, simple structures with all the pieces essential to testing new medications -- even custom cures for one specific person.
A new breed of computer chips that operate more like the brain may be about to narrow the gulf between artificial and natural computation—between circuits that crunch through logical operations at blistering speed and a mechanism honed by evolution to process and act on sensory input from the real world. Advances in neuroscience and chip technology have made it practical to build devices that, on a small scale at least, process data the way a mammalian brain does. These “neuromorphic” chips may be the missing piece of many promising but unfinished projects in artificial intelligence, such as cars that drive themselves reliably in all conditions, and smartphones that act as competent conversational assistants.
