Do Social Media Followers Really Matter?

Do Social Media Followers Really Matter? | entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Some people call the number of followers you have a “vanity metric,” but I think that’s too harsh a example of where social media followers reside. I prefer calling followers a “health metric.” They are an important part of your social analysis, but how many you have is somewhat irrelevant.

 

You can have strong relationships with your audience and even a high Klout score without having a ton of followers. To prove this point, here are the important factors that impact the number of followers you have....

Interesting ideas, I guess too many and too little numbers of followers is not impacting. It is in between, the degree of which depends on many factors such as disposable items available, time spent on social networks, field of interests, engagement of followers and other ffactors.

The amount of fans or followers you have is not necessarily a good metric of your brand or company's health.We need to move beyond fans and followers to more relevant content and engagement in social media to really win. Content helps define your brand, carries your message, and even grows your following.

 

We need to be looking at insights to delve into the quality of engagement, quality of followers, shareability and talkability.

"Our Final Invention" --Will Artificial Intelligence End the Human Epoch?

"Our Final Invention" --Will Artificial Intelligence End the Human Epoch? | entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

It has been claimed that Mankind's last great invention will be the first self-replicating intelligent machine. The Hollywood cliché that artificial intelligence will take over the world could soon become scientific reality as AI matches then surpasses human intelligence. Each year AI’s cognitive speed and power doubles — ours does not. Corporations and government agencies are pouring billions into achieving AI’s Holy Grail — human-level intelligence. Scientists argue that AI that advanced will have survival drives much like our own. Can we share the planet with it and survive?

Our Final Invention, a brilliant new summary of the last 15 years of academic research on risks from advanced AI by James Barrat, explores how the pursuit of Artificial Intelligence challenges our existence with machines that won’t love us or hate us, but whose indifference could spell our doom. Until now, intelligence has been constrained by the physical limits of its human hosts. What will happen when the brakes come off the most powerful force in the universe?

Curiosity examined this drift, called Rocknest, with five instruments, preforming an onboard laboratory analysis of samples scooped up from the Martian surface.

 

The drift has a complex history and includes sand particles with local origins, as well as finer particles that sample windblown Martian dust distributed regionally or even globally.
