The World's 21 Most Important Social Media Sites and Apps in 2015 - About Business Degrees | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it
Randy Milanovic, SocialMediaToday: The concepts behind “social networking” aren’t anything new – ever since there have been humans, we have been looking for ways to connect, network, and promote with one another – but they’ve taken on an entirely new meaning (and momentum) in the digital age.

German Business Leaders Clash with Google, Antitrust Officials

German Business Leaders Clash with Google, Antitrust Officials | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, March 28, 9:28 PM

Intriguing and somewhat frightening article from the "Wall Street Journal."  As Google and other digital "giants" slowly absorb knowledge acquisition and distribution networks, the arguments of governments, business leaders, and private individuals will become moot.  Once you control the access and distribution of data, you have the power to dictate how that knowledge is used.  Let the governments complain.  It will do little good in the years ahead when a few well-connected companies will control politicians, economies, and even our entertainment life.  Check out the sci-fi film "Rollerball" with James Caan.  You think it can't happen here?  Think again.  The future is already here and its name is Google.  Once Google reaches a knowledge sharing agreement with the Peoples' Republic of China, the vice will be fully closed.  To date, China has been fairly successful in controlling its national Internet through its Firewall programs.  "Net Neutrality" will be a vapor in the years ahead.  Aloha, Russ.

When Marissa Mayer became the CEO of Yahoo, one of the things she did was to ban employees from working from home. At the time this struck me as strange, especially for an internet based company. Surely there is enough evidence around to show that working from home can increase productivity and open the field for quality recruitment?

The good news is, there is an abundance of tools, both free and paid, out there that can help you do things like sort your followers, tell you when it is best to tweet (for higher exposure), find out who unfollowed you and more.

Google can do this because they can.

Google involvement with AI (Artificial Intelligence) is paying off the for web search giant, but I'm not so sure the trend is good for the rest of us. Aloha, Russ.
