Battle of the belly

Battle of the belly | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in 2012 based on self-reported BMI, 63 per cent of Australian males are overweight or obese.

 

And Australian women? 48 per cent are overweight or obese. It's no longer a schoolyard taunt; it's a health fact – the girls are faring better than the boys, and it's time to do something about it.

How to Double the Effectiveness of a Facebook Ad

How to Double the Effectiveness of a Facebook Ad | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

 

Advertising on Facebook is its largest revenue source and was estimated to have reached $2 billion in 2010.

 

Google’s search advertising revenue in 2010 amounted to more than $25 billion and is its main income stream and at this stage dwarfs Facebook’s advertising earnings.

 

What Google is watching closely though, is the growth in Facebook’s advertising (which increased by 158% to the $2 billion mark, up from only $775 million in 2009) and that is why Google+ is so important in the search giants future plans as it accelerates its socialization of  its on-line properties and demographic data capture.

 

Facebook has what Google aspires to and that is the detailed demographic information that people enter into Facebook when they sign up to become a user.

When Will SEO Die? The Death of SEO [Infographic] | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

Please note this piece does not say all people working in all these fields are hacks ignorant of SEO (we have brilliant friends at start ups & web design shops & so on that are razor sharp with SEO), but rather to highlight particularly egregious & bogus claims shouted loudly by an absurd few.

 

The goal of this infographic was that whenever the "death of SEO" topic is brought up someone can quickly post this image as a response.

Tech will make us rethink age-grouping in schools | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

In the past couple of years, digital education has experienced such profound growth and investment that it’s not hard to imagine that its momentum will only continue to build and re-shape schools and classrooms. But as important as building the technology to enable competency-based classrooms is building teacher support and education for new models. The technology is increasingly there, but the challenge is breaking through bureaucracy and overcoming entrenched ways of thinking about how education is structured and experienced.
