A new study seeks to classify the personalities of those who engage in trolling and to dissect this predatory behavior. The report by Erin Buckels of the University of Manitoba and two of her colleagues investigated the behavior patterns of people who enjoyed online trolling and investigated whether they possessed personality traits exhibiting manipulation and deceit, narcissism, an absence of remorse, and/or a willingness to inflict pain on others.
This type of behavior has disturbing implications. The individual who gets pleasure from “hunting” fellow humans for this sort of degrading “sport” shows serious signs of predatory and destructive tendencies. In fact, the practice of trolling has become so blatant that several websites have taken action to prevent it.
Most social media marketers will tell you that video marketing is their priority in 2016. In 2014, global mobile video traffic grew by 55% and we can expect to see a similar statistics for 2015 as December wraps. Video marketing is no longer a "nice-to-have".

A new poll finds that many top bosses realize the importance of reputation management in online branding, though interdepartmental collaboration is crucial to the equation.
“Corporate social media can also be used to shape brand perceptions and facilitate customer interactions,” Domeyer says. “Because it encompasses many activities—from content strategy to customer support to campaign analysis—that require different skills, it’s often beneficial for multiple departments to work closely together in order to leverage strengths and encourage ongoing collaboration.”
To be honest, professional communicators have not done a good job of embracing social media. I think now there is finally some recognition that social media channels are crucial instead of trivial.
The move in social media responsibility away from marketing professionals to professional communicators is due to the nature of the conversations.

If big media presented the public a fuller and more global scope of terrorist events in the past week, I wonder if we would see an equal expression of compassion for Beirut and Baghdad in social media.
"But do these social media fads preclude people from thinking more deeply about current events and issues, and thus make it easier to obscure one's role in the global community? Has it become easier to pick and choose sides without acknowledging personal accountability?
