In the past few years, businesses have rushed to use social media. About 94 percent of all businesses now use some form of social media to promote their brand and engage with customers. To be successful businesses need to define their social media goals, know their online audience and have to realize that social media is a marathon not a sprint.
French startup Bunkr is focused on one simple task: killing PowerPoint. To achieve this goal, the company’s well-designed web app will help you collect visual content and organize it into slides. The result is a very visual HTML5 presentation that works on your computer, phone or tablet. You can export your work in PDF or PPT as well.
Classic Menu for PowerPoint adds a Menus tab between File tab and Home tab. This tab will bring us back to the world of Microsoft PowerPoint 2003. If you have Classic Menu for PowerPoint 2007, 2010 and 2013, you can get Slide Master as before:
1. Select the View drop down menu in main menus tab;

In 2008, Mark Zuckerberg laid out his theory about people sharing content on Facebook. "I would expect that next year, people will share twice as much information as they share this year, and [the] next year, they will be sharing twice as much as they did the year before," he said.
"So, what are QR Codes, you ask? Well, you know what barcodes are, like when you buy something at the store and the clerk scans a code to enter the item and amount into the till? The QR (Quick Response) Code is kind of like that, except that it offers much more information. Quite often the QR Code will give you a link to a website, or a text message, image, etc. To read the QR Code, you need to install a QR Code Reader onto your device. There are many available for free. I like using i-nigma, seen below. Simply open the app, point it at a QR Code and your device will do the rest. Try it with the code above. It should take you back to this blog."
The basics of any social media account can be quickly mastered, but figuring out the heights and widths of all the images you will need to make your social outposts look awesome is a time-consuming and, unfortunately, often instantly forgettable business.
And it gets a heck of a lot more complicated when you start rolling out your Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube channels, and more.

Fiber-based broadband, whether delivered over an all Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) or hybrid copper/fiber Fiber to the Node (FTTN) network, is set to rise to 19 percent of global wireline broadband by the end of this year, says a new ABI Research report.
Jake Saunders, VP and practice director for ABI Research, said "there is a marked shift in consumer adoption from DSL to fiber-optic as operators continue to extend the reach of their fiber-optic infrastructure."
Growth of fiber-based broadband, notes the research firm, is happening in both developed and emerging markets. China, for example, has forecast that DSL broadband adoption will decline as the country's two main telcos, China Telecom and China Unicom, deploy FTTP networks.
During the first quarter, total DSL subscriptions declined by 3 million, while fiber-based subscriptions rose from 32.9 million to 37.6 million. Khin Sandi Lynn, industry analyst for ABI, expects "globally 25.6 million fiber-optic broadband subscribers will be added to eclipse 124 million subscribers in YE-2013."
In areas where service providers can't make a business case to deploy FTTP, a growing number of service providers including AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Telecom Italia and BT are testing vectoring VDSL2, which can theoretically deliver up to 100 Mbps over the existing copper network.
One of the most highly anticipated deployments of VDSL2 and vectoring will take place at Deutsche Telekom, which announced earlier this month that it would spend €6 billion ($7.9 billion) to build out a FTTC network to expand download speeds on its copper lines from 50 to 100 Mbps.
Meanwhile, the advent of G.fast promises to deliver up to 1 Gbps over existing copper over very short distances. Earlier this year, Telekom Austria's A1 subsidiary conducted a field trial of G.fast technology with their DSLAM vendor Alcatel-Lucent.
