If you lack a sense of urgency about the need for higher education to move quickly, think for a moment about what the increasing pace of change might bring as external forces. What would it mean for higher education and lifelong learning if a lifespan of 120 could be achieved through genetic manipulation?

I don't think the goal was to battle Pinterest. Snip.it stood out from the crowd for its uniqueness. The discussions were quite big there. On Pinterest, you don't have that.

Is Empathy The Secret Ingredient To A Social Business | B2B Marketing Insider

Is Empathy The Secret Ingredient To A Social Business | B2B Marketing Insider | It is all a Journey. | Scoop.it
What makes a social business different. Could empathy be the key? And how do you get hard-charging corporate execs to put customers and employees first?

Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's curator insight, January 19, 2013 3:28 PM

The days of overt and strong self-promotion are definitely over. If you want to succeed in social media, you have to be “social”.

 

Being a “social business” is something that requires much more than simple conversations with your audience. It’s about understanding what makes a customer tick, what triggers their desire to support you.

 

To Michael Brenner, the answer lies in empathy.

 

“Search for branded websites that you love and you will find that nearly all of them speak to you (the visitor) and the value you will receive as opposed to being about themselves (what they sell). Look at brands that connect with you and you will realize that they make you feel like they sincerely care about you.”

LinkedIn is definitely a great place for professionals interested in giving their brand a boost among their peers.

 

Unfortunately, the site can be quite confusing to figure out. As a result, people miss some major features.

 

Here are five features that you cannot afford to miss:

1) LinkedIn Today

2) Original Content

3) Signal

4) Groups

5) Recommendations / Endorsements

Pedro Araújo's curator insight, January 20, 2013 5:53 PM

We live in times when this kind of paradox easily happens. We live in such a rythm that we barely see our friends, cousins or uncles. Things like Facebook or other social networks can give us the sensation that we are keeping in touch. But if our lives are such a mess due to hard and long hours of work (lucky we are if we have work), what's the alternative? Loosing physical and digital contact with our community of friends and relatives? Is that better than keeping some contact, although we are doing it by digital platforms? Turning our back on this tool would make us even more lonely people.

Lincoln Torcelli's comment, January 21, 2013 5:44 AM
We are learning at an early stage to use and live with social media. In the meantime some people become heavy users and isolate themselves from real world. With the time we should be able to find a balance, and assume that social media is just another digital tool, which enables us to share ideas, among plenty of things.
