people think that mobile phone and social media are saving thousands of lives. the two things show an unbelievable power when facing the disasters.people though the mobile phone and get the many kinds of information about the disasters and they try to help each other. in some poor areas, because of lack of technology and the limitation of information, they cannot ask the outside world for help. this appearance shows that technology is changing the world and it makes our life become better and hopeful, and the social media connect everyone.
Justice I.A's comment, June 17, 2015 6:30 AM
Through access to technology, the impact of disaster has been eased in specific countries where they are able to gain access to social media and mobile phones. Whereas in countries where there is a limited access to these advancements, the impact of disaster has been much more greater and this has lead to the loss of lives and properties as there is limited information being passed across and therefore hindering any aid what so ever to come across. This indicates that the use of technology is vital as it helps a lot

the Red Cross said the morden communication should be equipped in many vulnerable communities to save disaster-prone countries.99 percent of the population is able to be saved because they get early warning from their own cell phones.The study found the fact that the poor country depends on others to get less information and called it ‘information poor ‘

France Just Created A Law That Makes It Illegal For Anyone To Work Past 6 PM

France Just Created A Law That Makes It Illegal For Anyone To Work Past 6 PM | computing | Scoop.it
French labor unions have signed a law requiring employees to shut off their smartphones at exactly 6 p.m, preventing bosses from hounding workers after they have fulfilled the hours they are responsible for.

Via GeraldineMcCann
Joyce Jin's insight:

A new law is just created by France which requires employees to shut off their smartphones at exactly 6pm. Each company involved should make sure that its employees are under no pressure to look at emails after 6pm. After doing that law, the employees would have more private time to do something that they really want after work.

France's new law shows that the company will be banned if the worker still work past 6 pm. it gives employees more right and more legal time to enjoy life. setting this law not only can prevent the employees rights and time, but also provide the employers an opportunity to effectively manage the working time and have a nice relationship with their workers. the workers will work with a good mood, it is benefit for both workers and the boss.
Justice I.A's comment, June 17, 2015 6:16 AM
The fact that the country France implements the law that employees switch off their mobile phones from 6pm to avoid calls from their bosses for extra work means that employees would now have to be paid for the exact amount of time that they work rather than get calls from their boss after working hours only for him or her to give extra work. This might actually be a good things but the task of actually achieving this depends solely on the employee and his relationship with the boss, this could either be good or bad and that might also affect working relationship.
Luke's comment, June 17, 2015 6:19 AM
French government have published a law that employees should not reply any messages and calls from their company after 6.0 pm exclude emergency call after employees finish their full time job base on the implementation of a 35-hour work week in 1999.This agreement will affect a million employees of technology industry to reduce their additional and unpaid work time.

many consumers now use mobile technology making it easier for them to access IT resources from their own personal devices both from work and at home. There is no longer much difference between business computing and personal computing as users now think of them in same way. Because of this, organizations has began to sanction the use of laptops, tablets and smartphones into the work place as it seems people are now more comfortable using theirs. This phenomenon is known as BYOD (bring your own device). Cloud computing is also being embraced by users of these mobile tech unknowingly as they tend to require much from app and software developers which are currently replacing traditional cloud-server architectures.

The first thing that he worried about is that non-free software makes users surrender control over their computing to someone else which means letting someone's else server do your own computing activities.Another difficulty is that non-free software forces others to use it as well which means if you use the non-free software , another person has to use it along with you.Accordig to what he said, there is still a big gap that need to be filled up with for non - free softwares.

The second one is roads to nowhere. Apple and Google are rivals now, and Apple make thier own maps to users. However, there are many wrong information in the map. Although it always be corrected , the mistakes are always happen as well. The third one is Millennium Bug, The Y2K was created by a simple, and perhaps lazy, computer programming shortcut,and it is a problem around the world. The fourth on is missed by that much. The problem which known as "metric mix-up” is serious.orbiter’s thrusters were The problem is that programmed using the metric system, software used on the ground used imperial measurements.

To summarise, it s vital for a company to attach their business to social media. Two important tings that are mentioned in that article are creating  professional plans for the company and paying attention on the quanlity of  the things you send out.Social media is a platform for business to 'show off'. Moreover to  be wise when you post something on twitter or facebook . It is essential to post eye-catching and entertaining things that people are feel like reading instead of business advertisements.However, the posters should not be only interesting, bu also be related to your business. For example, talking about the future goals of your business, your products,your service and so on and trying to make them interesting.

It is quite significant for company at any period of development to have active social media as a supporting factor for business and advertising. There is also some basic material that every publisher needs to know. For example, it is always providing good quality no matter what the content is. Another needed quality is scheduling. Your social media should be active enough to attract attention but it should not be too annoying for it to fill up all the readers' feed. It is also quite important to learn how to "recycle" your posts by delivering the same information or post to different websites ad services by reposting, liking, sharing or simply paraphrasing it. Nowadays, blogs are so popular and completely free so every business company should have one regardless of its occupation.

To conclude, quality is more important than quantity in social media. An thee are two factors can help you generate more followers.The first is scheduling. The key of scheduling is consistency which is to say that need a schedule in the markets in order to avoid to be forgotten. Another is quality which is o offer the highest quality of everything you send out. In addition, every platform has different audiences, so the content you post on should be eve-catching and entertaining, and also post info that people are willing to read in order to attract more followers.

Definitely, using social media to promote your business is a smart way. However, the professional social media requires two important factors which are scheduling and quality. The platform which used to promote your post is important as well. publishers should focusing on what info do they customers really interest in. finally, choosing the most popular social media to post your ads.
