You Innovate Only if Doing Nothing is a Bigger Risk

You Innovate Only if Doing Nothing is a Bigger Risk | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

Innovation is a paradox for most of us. On the one hand you are well aware that you have to take new roads before you reach the end of the present dead end street. On the other hand it is risky. It takes a lot of time. And it takes a lot of resources. Research shows that only one out of seven innovation projects is successful. So saying yes to innovation for a vice-president is a step into the unknown. If this big innovation initiative fails, it will probably costs it his or hers job. So a lot of managers wait in reality until not innovating is not an option anymore. This is so human. It is also frustrating as you as innovator want to start today.

Sosiaalinen yritys: jaetut arvot, missio ja visio

Sosiaalinen yritys: jaetut arvot, missio ja visio | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

Sosiaalinen yritys yhdistää parhaimmillaan ihmiset jaettujen arvojen ja syvemmän tarkoituksen taakse. Se houkuttelee ihmiset yhteisten kysymysten äärelle, eikä toitota omaa erinomaisuuttaan. Näin haluan uskoa, enkä ole yksin.

How to get the most out of Apple's Siri on your iPhone or iPad

How to get the most out of Apple's Siri on your iPhone or iPad | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

For a feature that has so many uses across all of iOS, it is amazing how many people have never used Siri before. A survey taken in the second half of last year found that as many as84 percent of users polled were not using Siri following the launch of iOS 7.

That means that there are still quite a few individuals that for some strange reason find it awkward speaking into their cell phones. What may make the remaining device owners more comfortable trying out Siri is knowing that you can use Siri with a set of headphones that include a microphone and even Bluetooth headsets.

Sometek – sosiaalinen media, oppiminen ja työ | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

Meneillään on digimurros joka muuttaa perustavasti niin oppimista kuin tietotyötä.

Teenagers say goodbye to Facebook, adding street cred to WeChat

Teenagers say goodbye to Facebook, adding street cred to WeChat | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

We’ve heard about how Facebook is losing its street cred and its teenage audience as more and more baby boomers (their parents) join the platform. Where are all the teenagers going to, then? The answer is WeChat.

 

Chinese messaging app WeChat is the fastest growing social app used by youths worldwide, according to a study by Global Web Index. The latest study was conducted based on the feedback from teenagers aged 16 to 19 globally, excluding China. WeChat saw a 1,021 percent increase in usage among youths between Q1 and Q3 2013. The second-fastest growing is Vine at a rate of 639 percent, followed by Flickr (254 percent)....

I don't mind not hanging out with the 16 - 19 year old teenagers on Facebook. In fact, I kind of prefer it. The only thing is, I wish Facebook did not have such a 'stick up its butt' sometimes.

Facebook is increasingly pay to play – but you still need social content

Facebook is increasingly pay to play – but you still need social content | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

Facebook used to be the place I went to see what important things were happening with those I was interested in, that was its USP, that is why I liked it. But last week a friend announced his recent engagement on the site, and despite being on the platform on a regular basis I did not see this story till it got over 80 likes. So what is going on?

Last year Facebook allowed ordinary users to use the Promoted Post feature to advertise their posts to their own friends. That's right - pay hard cash so your own friends will see your updates. This is in stark contrast to YouTube, who will actually pay you if you create great content.

Sitting in front of computers all day, we're constantly confronted by a clock telling us what time it is, and it's no different whether we're at home or on the go: 60 percent of Gen Yers (ages 18-30) find themselves compulsively or subconsciously checking their smart phones for emails, texts, or social media updates, according to a 2012 Cisco report.

This ever-present technology is changing not only the way we perceive time, but also the way we think, according to Dr. Philip Zimbardo, professor emeritus of psychology at Stanford and author of The Time Paradox: The New Psychology Of Time That Will Change Your Life.
