Dear Sally and John, please feel free to share with others.
Ivon Prefontaine's comment, October 5, 2013 1:08 PM
I agree Eric. It is time to do something in education. I am working on it through a doctoral process and dissertation which I hope leads to making a difference somehow. The challenge is it takes a group, even a small group, to make a difference per Margaret Mead.
Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's comment, October 6, 2013 9:10 PM
Hi Ivon, we'll look forward to learn more about your dissertation. It starts with one person, then you are correct, you build the community from there. Best wishes!

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it)

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it) | Life etc. | Scoop.it
 Earlier this month, Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover. Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it. It’s true that many platforms go through a similar cycle: first, they present a great free opportunity, then more and more people grab it - decreasing the return for everyone until finally, the platform focuses on those ready to pay for play. It happened with Google Search; it happened with Apps (yes, Apple doesn’t sell ads but others do - such as coincidentally... Facebook). And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
So what does the decline of organic reach on Facebook and social platforms exactly mean on a practical basis? Continue reading →
