G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Is it time for social media education in our schools? The recent Manti Te'o hoax is only the tip of the iceberg. He knew how to use social media, but didn’t understand its power.

 

There is an urgent need to educate students at all levels on the responsible use of social media. It’s time to help students navigate this unfiltered world of anonymous faces. When searching for a curriculum for social media education.

 

Teaching students how to set their privacy levels on applications is only the starting line, not the finish line.

The Problem With Our Social Media Addiction

The Problem With Our Social Media Addiction | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Earlier this year, a study found that social media is more addicting than alcohol and cigarettes.

 

Addictions can be dangerous. They can threaten our relationships with others and overall well-being. No one is more addicted to social media right now than the media.

 

Arianna blogged about this in March, when she wrote that the media's obsession with social media had reached "idol-worshipping proportions."

 

I'd argue the addiction has only gotten stronger, as journalists live tweeted seemingly every word of the first presidential debate last week, helping set a new record for volume of tweets in the process. Because you know the world needs a thousand journalists tweeting the same line at the same time.

It takes time to be social

It takes time to be social | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

According to research by the Dachis Group, only 10 – 20% of employees in large organizations are actively engaged with their enterprise social collaboration platforms, as reported in this MIT Sloan article:

 

It may be that for many employees, even in these early adopter firms working to integrate internal social business applications, using these applications do not offer enough value or reason to shift behavior. Employees may be unaware of the potential of their social platform; or perhaps they have not been properly trained and educated. Or of course, it is also possible that while they are aware and have been trained, the value still isn’t there or isn’t high enough.
