Why Your Brand Needs To Be More Visible On Facebook

Why Your Brand Needs To Be More Visible On Facebook | Communication design | Scoop.it
Traditional marketing still works, but working smarter means your brand maintains high visibility on the pages of Facebook.

 

The numbers are in — and they’re high. More than 800 million users have declared Facebook their digital home and anyone with a brand should be forging it on the social network.

 

Of those nearly billion users, half of them are actively trolling Facebook each and every day, making Facebook the poster child of the old saying, “if you build it they will come.”

 

And, apparently keep on coming, with 50 million users discovering the social utility every two months. Additionally, 350 million mobile users log on each day...

Evelyn Weiss's curator insight, March 5, 12:39 PM

With every human expected to own some 20 or more connected devices by the year 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a phenomenon that can't be ignored.

 

Data connections deliver insights; when applied, these insights inform and improve products, services, and ultimately customer experiences (CXs) and relationships. Harnessing digital connections to foster deeper human connections is the highest opportunity of IoT.

 

Here you can find a framework for contextualizing the Internet of Things, and five definitive ways companies can use sensors to create mutual benefit for both brand and consumer through the entire customer journey.

A paralyzed woman flew an F-35 fighter jet in a simulator — using only her mind

A paralyzed woman flew an F-35 fighter jet in a simulator — using only her mind | Communication design | Scoop.it

Over at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, also known as DARPA, there are some pretty amazing (and often top-secret) things going on. But one notable component of a DARPA project was revealed by a Defense Department official at a recent forum, and it is the stuff of science fiction movies. According to DARPA Director Arati Prabhakar, a paralyzed woman was successfully able use her thoughts to control an F-35 and a single-engine Cessna in a flight simulator.


It's just the latest advance for one woman, 55-year-old Jan Scheuermann, who has been the subject of two years of groundbreaking neurosignaling research.  First, Scheuermann began by controlling a robotic arm and accomplishing tasks such as feeding herself a bar of chocolate and giving high fives and thumbs ups. Then, researchers learned that -- surprisingly -- Scheuermann was able to control both right-hand and left-hand prosthetic arms with just the left motor cortex, which is typically responsible for controlling the right-hand side. After that, Scheuermann decided she was up for a new challenge, according to Prabhakar.


"Jan decided that she wanted to try flying a Joint Strike Fighter simulator," Prabhakar said, prompting laughter from the crowd at the New America Foundation's Future of War forum. "So Jan got to fly in the simulator."


Unlike pilots who use the simulator technology for training, Scheuermann wasn't thinking about controlling the plane with a joystick. She thought about flying the plane itself -- and it worked. "In fact," Prabhakar noted, "for someone who's never flown -- she's not a pilot in real life -- she's in there flying a simulator directly from neurosignaling."


Scheuermann has been paralyzed since 2003 because of a neurodegenerative condition. In 2012, she agreed to be fitted with two probes on the surface of her brain in the motor cortex area responsible for right hand and arm movements. In the last two years, she has tolerated those probes better than expected; as a result, she's been the subject of increasingly sophisticated experiments in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and DARPA's Revolutionizing Prosthetics program, to determine just how much she can do simply by thinking about it.

Dr. Reshan Richards: "Each of these approaches allows teachers and learner to capture and create moments of learning, excerpts of understanding, and reflections of experience. Let’s pretend to be one of my 5th-grade math students from last year participating in an activity about tessellating patterns. The activity was to figure out what individual shapes, when arranged in a flat pattern with touching sides, formed a closed tesselating patter (a regular tessellation). This activity involved using physical manipulative objects (pattern blocks), a piece of paper to document findings (journal workbook page), and NCTM Illumination’s Tessellation Creator website as resources for engaging in the experience of exploring regular tessellation. Here’s how the QFAT could be applied to this activity with an iPad."

18 Visions Of The City Of The Future, From The Past

18 Visions Of The City Of The Future, From The Past | Communication design | Scoop.it

In 1939, visitors stood in line for hours to see the Futurama exhibit at the New York World's Fair, a detailed model imagining 1960s America. Complete with half a million tiny buildings and a million handmade miniature trees, it also visualized a network of highways crossing the country. And while the interstate system probably would have been built without it, it's arguable that the visualization—sponsored by GM—helped the roads happen.

A new exhibit called the Future City, up now at London's Royal Institute of British Architects, looks at how drawings and models of futuristic cities can shape the cities that actually are built.

"Visualizations of future cities contribute to our collective imagination," says Nick Dunn from Lancaster University "They provide us with visionary projections of how we might live. Reexamining these from a historical perspective can give us new insights and greater understanding of the developments and patterns that shape the present, and in turn, their implications for our future."

The Vertical Zoo: A wild greenery-wrapped tower that provides refuge for animalia | Communication design | Scoop.it
Mexico City-based BuBa Arquitectos proposes a vertical zoo wrapped in lush vegetation that relies on solar power, rainwater and natural ventilation.

Why not take the same theories and technologies used to grow organic produce and raise animals and apply them to build more compact, more sustainable zoos? Proposed by Mexico City-based BuBa Arquitectos, the Vertical Zoo is a balanced and sustainable space where people and animals can coexist in harmony. Wrapped in lush vegetation, the star-shaped building makes use of green building strategies to reduce heat gain, encourage natural ventilation and soak up rainwater. Totally self-sufficient, the tower's aim is to be a sustainable refuge for all animal kingdom species.

Steps to Creating the Conditions for Deep, Rigorous, Applied Learning | Infographic | Communication design | Scoop.it

Many school administrators, teachers and parents want the education provided to children to be high quality, rigorous and connected to the world outside the classroom. Teachers are trying to provide these elements in various ways, but a group of schools calling themselves the “Deeper Learning Network” have codified some of what they believe are essential qualities of deep learning (check out how students lead parent teacher conferences in this model).

Some of these qualities include learning designated content, critical thinking, communication skills, collaborating effectively and connecting learning to real-world experiences.
