Social Collaboration Tools Can Make Your Business More Efficient

Social Collaboration Tools Can Make Your Business More Efficient | Business Futures | Scoop.it
When employers and employees are divided geographically, emerging software can bridge the gap and enable working together.

We’ve seen a significant increase in contingent workers since the Great Recession; technology is one of the reasons this growth is possible. Employees no longer have to be in the same location to feel connected. Technology can help us feel a part of a team even if we’re thousands of miles away.

There’s a specific technology that’s helping to pave the way — social collaboration software. This software market was a $600 million industry in 2010, but it’s estimated to reach $6.4 billion in 2016. If you’re looking for a way to stay connected, feel engaged and get stuff done, exploring social collaboration could be worthwhile.

Can Interest Targeting Improve Facebook's Ad Model?

Can Interest Targeting Improve Facebook's Ad Model? | Business Futures | Scoop.it
Interest targeting may help Facebook sell more and better ads, but the discipline still has a ways to go.

Most people don’t hear the name “Leighton Meester” and think “jewelry,” but there’s a strong correlation between the Gossip Girl star and consumers who are in the market for some bling.
The relationship had been unexploited and probably unknown until SocialFlow, the New York-based social media marketing firm, crunched the numbers. Working on behalf of a large jewelry client, SocialFlow was able to buy ads against Facebook conversations about Meester.

The result, says Frank Speiser, co-founder of SocialFlow, was a 2x to 3x jump in click-through rates for ads.

Long-Term Unemployed Find New Job Often Means Lower Pay - Bloomberg

Long-Term Unemployed Find New Job Often Means Lower Pay - Bloomberg | Business Futures | Scoop.it

A surge in long-term U.S. unemployment, which Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke has cited as evidence of a “far from normal” labor market, finally is abating. That’s good news for American companies, which are taking advantage of a pool of 5.2 million people whose career hardships have made them eager to return to work. Most of the re-employed have had to settle for reduced pay, allowing businesses to keep labor costs low while boosting profits amid sluggish sales gains following the deepest recession since the 1930s.

The Agriculture Industry Goes Social

The Agriculture Industry Goes Social | Business Futures | Scoop.it

The marriage of agriculture and social media likely conjures up images of crop seeding on Farmville, but socially savvy agribusinesses are proving that the connection runs much deeper than the popular Zynga game. A 2011 study by the American Farm Bureau Federation revealed that of the 98% of farmers and ranchers ages 18 to 25 who have internet access, 76% of them use social media.

Sure, agribusiness often gets a bad rep for being “behind the times,” but that assumption couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, agribusinesses have embraced social media as a channel that is revolutionizing both B2B and B2C communications for the industry.

The upcoming iPhone 5 will support 4G LTE, or what Apple calls "the fastest cellular network," according to a report.

The company’s latest smartphone will work on networks worldwide, including in the U.S., Europe and Asia, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. But the iPhone 5 won’t likely work with all carriers’ LTE networks in every country, a source told the newspaper.

5 Reasons Social Media Is Ruining Marketing

5 Reasons Social Media Is Ruining Marketing | Business Futures | Scoop.it

Social media is one of the worst things to ever happen to the discipline of marketing. The rise of Facebook and Twitter as marketing vehicles has spawned a generation of young professionals who talk instead of listen. They think engaging in “the conversation” is more important than identifying your audience, understanding what motivates them, and developing powerful messaging to address those motivations.

Here’s the reality: Social media has made marketers lazy, because so many people think it is the magic bullet for new sales. It’s not. It never has been. And it never will be. It’s just one of many available platforms for your marketing message, and you should use it as such. Don’t exclude it, be present there, but be present in a variety of other platforms as well. Here are five reasons why.

Nigerian economy: Freeing funds for development

Nigerian economy: Freeing funds for development | Business Futures | Scoop.it

Today’s reality for Nigeria is a fortified adoption of Public Private Partnerships (PPP), Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools, and accelerated human capital development to leapfrog for advancement without predisposition. Government is the biggest employer of labour in the country and the burden on recurrent expenditure is becoming too worrisome; so it is essential for the federal government to urgently re-organise some agencies such as Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST), Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), National Sports Commission, and Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) to operate as self-sustaining parastatals to further reduce federal recurrent expenditure. Billions of naira could be garnered from these agencies to embark on large scale human and infrastructure development.

Interactive patient education reduces readmissions, increases satisfaction

Interactive patient education reduces readmissions, increases satisfaction | Business Futures | Scoop.it

Hospitals are increasingly challenged to engage patients in healthcare management and aid them in making informed decisions to improve their overall health and wellness. Federal regulations and meaningful use requirements urge hospitals to use health information technology and other initiatives to increase patient engagement, understanding and compliance. Hospitals that engage patients often see better outcomes, reduced readmissions and enhanced patient and staff satisfaction.

 

Some hospitals are implementing creative techniques to meet current expectations for patient-centric healthcare, such as on-demand digitized video education technology and interactive patient education systems. These interactive services allow hospitals to customize patient education and information sharing for a variety of medical needs.

How To Find Hidden Talent For Your Tech Company

How To Find Hidden Talent For Your Tech Company | Business Futures | Scoop.it
Top talent is few and far between. The best of the best aren’t searching for a job, so how do you find them?

There are a number of reasons why tech employers should be proactive when it comes to maintaining their current employees and attracting new ones. Regardless of the state of the economy, qualified candidates for these jobs remain in high demand.

It can be tough to find real talent hidden among a stack of job applications. But if you reconsider your recruitment strategy, it doesn’t have to be. Take a different approach: Rather than waiting for top talent to come to you, go out and search for it yourself. It might seem like a daunting task at first, but all you need are the right tools ...
