Social Media is a Waste of Time

Social Media is a Waste of Time | Communication design | Scoop.it
But an online marketing expert explains how you can make Facebook, Twitter, and Groupon, among others, work for your small business.

 

If you are like most small businesses, you and your team are stretched thin. If you even have a team. All day long you are servicing customers, delivering products, managing finances and doing whatever it takes to keep your business up and running. The last thing you need is to waste time. But for many small businesses, that’s exactly what they are doing when it comes to marketing with social media.

 

The typical small business Facebook page is a ghost town. It might have some pictures of the business, a few posts about an event six months ago, and a handful of followers who joined when the page launched. On Twitter, there might be a couple posts a month and none of them are related to any customer question. The same is true for Foursquare. Groupon is like going to the casino: there’s a good chance you’ll come home with empty pockets...

City Layouts Created with OpenStreetMap Data

City Layouts Created with OpenStreetMap Data | Communication design | Scoop.it

Topography, architecture and traffic routes give every city a unique structure.
'These conditions create the typical and individual inner structure of a city. I didn’t only want to show these structures in the conventional way from above, but also including the exact three-dimensionality of topography and buildings – a real world visualisation.
The OpenStreetMap data enabled me to visualize the satellite-based information using DEM Earth in Cinema 4D. The results are some extraordinary views of large capitals and small towns.'

Catherine Devin's curator insight, May 6, 2:02 AM

Effectivement en France, beaucoup de logements pionniers en termes de performance énergétique ou de performance environnementale globale accueillent des familles de revenus modestes  sur l'impulsion des projets de bailleurs sociaux.   Ce type de logement va aussi souvent de pair avec un  projet d'habitat participatif.

James Pallot's curator insight, May 6, 5:41 AM

Housing projects are focusing more on using shipping containers for a more affordable price and the availability of the material that will soon make people own their place instead of just renting. And that means saving a lot of money for more important matters.

A great customer experience is dependent on understanding the customer needs and responding quickly to solve problems. Every organization has some bad customer experiences -take care of them and customers will forgive you and stay around.

Ces résultats démontrent encore une fois l'importance d'un bon service à la clientèle, notamment de répondre bien et rapidement aux demandes des clients. Les avis en ligne sont de plus importants et les avis les plus longs sont associées à des clients insatisfaits.

Wearables 2015: Defining digital medicine

Wearables 2015: Defining digital medicine | Communication design | Scoop.it
Digital medicine is poised to transform biomedical research, clinical practice and the commercial sector. Here we introduce a monthly column from R&D/venture creation firm PureTech tracking digital medicine's emergence.


Technology has already transformed the social fabric of life in the twenty-first century. It is now poised to profoundly influence disease management and healthcare. Beyond the hype of the 'mobile health' and 'wearable technology' movement, the ability to monitor our bodies and continuously gather data about human biology suggests new possibilities for both biomedical research and clinical practice. Just as the Human Genome Project ushered in the age of high-throughput genotyping, the ability to automate, continuously record, analyze and share standardized physiological and biological data augurs the beginning of a new era—that of high-throughput human phenotyping.


These advances are prompting new approaches to research and medicine, but they are also raising questions and posing challenges for existing healthcare delivery systems. How will these technologies alter biomedical research approaches, what types of experimental questions will researchers now be able to ask and what types of training will be needed? Will the ability to digitize individual characteristics and communicate by mobile technology empower patients and enable the modification of disease-promoting behaviors; at the same time, will it threaten patient privacy? Will doctors be prescribing US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared apps on a regular basis, not just to monitor and manage chronic disease but also to preempt acute disease episodes? Will the shift in the balance between disease treatment and early intervention have a broad economic impact on the healthcare system? How will the emergence of these new technologies reshape the healthcare industry and its underlying business models? What will be the defining characteristics of 'winning' products and companies?


These are just some of the questions we plan to ask over the coming months. In the meantime, we introduce here some of the key themes shaping R&D in the digital medicine field and focus on what they might mean for the biopharmaceutical and diagnostic/device industries.

Astronomers find most distant galaxy ever

Astronomers find most distant galaxy ever | Communication design | Scoop.it

Astronomers have located the most distant galaxy ever measured in the universe, some 13.1 billion light-years from Earth. The galaxy, called EGS-zs8-1, is one of the brightest and most massive objects in the early universe, the scientists report in the journal Astrophysical Journal LettersThe finding pushes back the cosmic frontier of galaxy exploration to a time when the universe was only 5 per cent of its present age of 13.8 billion years. The galaxy existed so long ago, it appears to be only 100 million years old.


The team of astronomers from Yale and the University of California, Santa Cruz say that EGS-zs8-1 is still forming stars rapidly, about 80 times faster than our galaxy, the Milky Way, which has a star formation rate of one star per year.


"It has already grown more than 15 per cent of the mass of our own Milky Way today," says Pascal Oesch, lead author of the study from Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. "But it had only 670 million years to do so. The universe was still very young then."


Only a handful of galaxies currently have accurate distances measured in this very early universe. "Every confirmation adds another piece to the puzzle of how the first generations of galaxies formed in the early universe," says study co-author Pieter van Dokkum of Yale.


"Only the most sensitive telescopes are powerful enough to reach to these large distances." The galaxy was first spotted in images from NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes.


Calculating its exact distance from Earth was possible using the MOSFIRE instrument on the W.M. Keck Observatory's 10-meter telescope in Hawaii, researchers say.
