Ignacio Conejo Moreno's curator insight, February 22, 2013 7:15 AM

Depende del punto de vista ... .
Facebook es el "Rey" de las Redes Sociales, pero Twitter es el que más conversación y seguidores consigue, para una cuenta activa.

Bien, valorando estos datos, ¿quién es el Rey, desde el punto de vista ya no solo del Marketing, sino de la Comunicación en general?

Piet Kommers's curator insight, March 11, 2013 9:11 PM

Those at midcareer feel at home in the facebook cocoon. It seems that students tend to escape to more adventurous genres like micro blogging and felicitology, according to http://www.marketingfacts.nl/berichten/de-veranderingen-op-facebook-die-je-als-marketeer-niet-mag-missen?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=tweetbutton

Is it the same mechanism as the Apple-effect that thrives youngsters away from iPhone and iPad?

Van kennis naar kassa. Zes redenen waarom het mkb niet voldoende profiteert van kennis | Funding Future | Scoop.it

Het creëren van waarde door kennis, dat is ‘valorisatie’ in het kort. Of zelfs nog korter: Van kennis naar kassa. De Nederlandse overheid maakt daarom beleid om deze kennis  succesvol  om te zetten naar waarde. Mkb-ondernemers zijn de motor van de Nederlandse economie. Zij kunnen een belangrijke rol spelen in dit valorisatieproces, maar profiteren nog te weinig van de expertise van publieke kennisinstellingen (universiteiten en hogescholen)  en het ingezette beleid.

Why an IPO Can Kill Your Innovation

Why an IPO Can Kill Your Innovation | Funding Future | Scoop.it
A Stanford study finds that tech companies undergo a major innovation slowdown after going public.

Think going public will give you the money you need to expand and really fuel your passion and innovation? Hold that thought, and consider a new study that just came out of the Stanford Graduate School of Business--though prepare yourself for some cognitive dissonance.
