A New Kind Of Social Science For The  21st century | Conversation | Edge

A New Kind Of Social Science For The  21st century | Conversation | Edge | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Christakis has done important work on "contagion" in social networks and in this talk (transcript or video) touches on the interdisciplinary study of cooperation that I've been talking about for ten years. -- Howard

 

"Incidentally, related to that, it's not just that a biological hurricane is approaching the social sciences. Social sciences are generating questions that biologists are becoming interested in. One of my favorite examples of this is cooperation. This is a topic that social scientists have been interested in for a very long time, and evolutionary biologists as well. But now this is drilling down even to the cellular or molecular level, and people are beginning to ask questions about how sub-organismic biological entities “cooperate,” and what does it mean for biology?"

Social Media ROI, Is Social Media Marketing Effective?

Social Media ROI, Is Social Media Marketing Effective? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
The question of Social Media ROI and whether social media marketing is effective is one that is constantly on the forefront of businesses.

 

The question of Social Media ROI and whether social media marketing is effective is one that is constantly on the forefront of businesses. It is no longer a question of whether a company needs to be in social media, but more how to measure the efforts.

 

In the infographic below, thanks to MDG, we get a better look at additional factors to determine effectiveness beyond the obvious “did someone buy our stuff”.

How to Network? Hint: Early and Often! - @RichardBranson

How to Network? Hint: Early and Often! - @RichardBranson | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Masterclass from THE #1 Playfull Pioneer in which he answers 4 Unspoken Questions:

 

Q1. Where do you Network?

   To get started, attend industry events and meet key players; join regional business associations and start learning about local market conditions. Also remember that you can meet potential mentors at schools, clubs and business groups. Someday, when you get stuck or when something goes wrong, these contacts will be the people you’ll turn to for help.

 

Q2. Who do you want in your Network?

   Launching a startup is tough and scary, so it is important that as you build your network, you look for smart, supportive partners and employees who understand and share your goals for the business.

 

Q3. Why would you Clap Competing Hands to make one Beat?

   You’re also going to need a network of peers, so don’t be wary of making friends with your competition. When you see other people achieving similar goals, you will be reminded that your own plans and dreams are possible. And if you are feeling daunted by a task, there’s no better encouragement than learning that somebody else has already achieved something similar.

 

Q4. Why do you continue to grow your Network?

   Once you’re a successful business leader, it’s time to start championing undiscovered talent yourself. I get a real sense of pleasure from seeing talented people realize their ambitions and grow professionally and personally. As I’ve learned, in the process you can gain new insights and discover fresh approaches to doing business by simply discussing how things work. After all, continuing to network means continuing to grow.

The Influence of Your Social Network

The Influence of Your Social Network | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
The decisions you make over the next 12 months will be influenced by the social network you surround yourself with. Have you taken note of who these people are?

 

When you think about everything you’re going to do over the next 12 months, do you recognize the influence of your social network?

 

In the next year you will take vacations, eat in restaurants, read books, see movies, and explore new hobbies. Do you know that you will make many of those decisions as the result of a suggestion by someone in your social network?

 

Now, when I say “social network” I’m not talking only about your social media network. While your social network is probably a part of that, too, I’m really focusing in on the people who surround you in a typical 24- hour day or an average week. I’m talking about the people on your team.

Networks and Innovation: Social Media and Emotional Capital

Networks and Innovation: Social Media and Emotional Capital | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
In fact, in our survey of 1060 global executives, only 30% said that they work for companies that benefited from the internal use of social media. Why do so many companies either avoid using social media or fail to make it work ...

 

I'm surprised the number is as high as 30%. In the small business to entrepreneurial environment, I think the number is under 5% at best. I also ask this question - why are so few companies leveraging social media for customer service, marketing, pr, branding, recruiting, sales, lead generation, lead nurturing, and customer retention?

Nigel Cameron: Time for Leaders to ‘Get’ Twitter | The People Behind the Paper.lis

Nigel Cameron: Time for Leaders to ‘Get’ Twitter | The People Behind the Paper.lis | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Part of the mindset needed for innovative and informed decisions in C21 involves engaged awareness in both converging ‘fields’ that have traditionally been kept very separate (true of scientific and other “academic” disciplines; the broader silos of policy/arts/business/S&T/US/global/journalism and so on) and the standard ‘functional’ divisions within the organization (corporate or other).
Across all three of these sets of silos Twitter offers integrative knowledge streams. Each morning I am in a top-level briefing on, say, Syria (locals tweeting as well as ‘experts’ as well as mainline journos curating what they see as the best material), privacy (politicians and advocacy groups and industry gurus on all sides), investment (grasping the unfolding debacles at Facebook and Groupon), latest thinking on innovation – to give 4 examples of great current interest to me.
An hour on Twitter leaves me much better informed than a day spent working my way through standard online outlets would.
