It's not if, but when. Between crooks, hackers, and foreign governments, Facebook probably can't avoid a serious user data breach forever. When it happens, Facebook may never be able to quiet fears that "personal data isn't safe there".

Putting Social Media to Work: An HBR.org Insight Center

Putting Social Media to Work: An HBR.org Insight Center | "latest technology news" | Scoop.it
There's been a lot of talk about social media's vast promise for business, but where are the deliverables? Sure, virtually all businesses are on Facebook and Twitter, and everyone knows that in theory, at least, social-media tools can give companies direct access to customers and an opportunity to learn about their likes, dislikes, and desires. A number of corporations have become adept at using social media to geotarget customers, customize messages, and even communicate with individual consumers. And no marketing or reputational campaign would be complete these days without likes and tweets.

But what about social media's supposed power to change the way businesses innovate? Create strategy? Interact with employees?

That kind of progress may not be obvious, but evidence of social media's real promise is cropping up in all kinds of businesses, from knowledge companies to manufacturers to retailers. As corporate leaders develop a deeper understanding of social media's power, online interactions are becoming a rich resource. Some organizations are setting up listening posts to track customer sentiment. Others are creating collaborative environments for employees. Still others are learning how social media can boost sales.

During the next few weeks, HBR.org will investigate social media's value to all parts of your business, from strategy creation to recruitment to stakeholder engagement. For starters, innovation expert John Seely Brown writes about social media's role in transforming business; Roy Bahat, chairman of game-console maker OUYA, will show how social media is changing the way businesses recruit and hire; Raj Agnihotri of Ohio University will discuss social media's impact on the world of B2B sales. And that's just for starters.

The Cloudy Future of Facial Recognition In Stores Marketing

The Cloudy Future of Facial Recognition In Stores Marketing | "latest technology news" | Scoop.it

Department store surveillance cameras are not just watching for thieves. Some are also tracking customer activity. Knowing the ebb and flow of the number of shoppers, the path they take through the store and the products they touch can provide valuable information for boosting sales. While customers may find this level of scrutiny creepy, retailers see it as survival in a low-margin, fiercely competitive business.

 

Customer Data For Marketing

 

Retailers and vendors say technology is not being used today to personally identify shoppers. Software companies such as Prism Skylabs and RetailNext blur faces or use heat maps in providing visualizations of customer goings-on. In 2010, The Global Association For Marketing At Retail warned marketers againstrecording or storing facial data without consent. "While technology imposes few restrictions on data collections in retail settings, marketers should safeguard consumer privacy," the group said in publishing a voluntary code of conduct for collecting in-store customer data.

 

The Federal Trade Commission has said it does not have a problem with gathering aggregate information on shoppers. "We would be very concerned about the use of cameras to identify previously anonymous people," Mark Eichorn of the FTC Division of Privacy and Identity Protection told Time magazine.

 

Not surprisingly, privacy advocates are taking a more hardline stance. For them, the use of cameras for anything but catching pilferers is wrong, because most people do not know they are being watched for reasons other than security. But do people really expect privacy when standing in an aisle and checking out a jacket? They certainly don't expect others to know who they are, but it's a reasonable assumption that others will see them handling the potential purchase.
