​QR codes aren't useless after all, study says - CNET

​QR codes aren't useless after all, study says - CNET | social media | Scoop.it

Nielsen's latest report on mobile payments isn't too surprising, save one tidbit: people like using QR codes.

 

The study, released Thursday, found that mobile payment users actually prefer methods involving quick response (QR) codes or bar codes.

 

Almost half, 45 percent, of the nearly 4,000 people surveyed by Nielsen said they use the method to check out with their smartphones.Akin to bar codes, QR codes are blocks of printed code used to store large amounts of digital information. For a time, they were showing up everywhere -- on product packaging, ads, marketing campaigns -- but were seen as unnecessary or gimmicky. In mobile payments, cashiers can simply scan the codes displayed on a customer's smartphone as they would any bar code....

The research may be true but the applications of QR codes by marketers and designers have been abysmal.

Things Get Weird When Objects Get Hooked up to the Internet

Things Get Weird When Objects Get Hooked up to the Internet | social media | Scoop.it
Thermostats are just the start.

 

With the flood of new connected services and devices on the market, knowing how future users might hook them together or find unexpected new uses is a challenge, no matter what Silicon Valley’s confident young bucks may tell us. A service called IFTTT is giving us an interesting peek into the practical, clever and slightly weird ways people want to use the Internet of Things (IoT).

 

As a user-friendly dashboard that allows non-experts to fit feeds from favorite media, utilities (like cloud storage, social networks, home devices) and wearables in new combinations, or “recipes,” IFTTT is putting a broad array of tech in people’s hands for experimentation. Think of it as a friendly front end to the myriad of data connections and mashup of programming it would normally require to get our favorite apps and devices to talk together.

 

Users can do things are practical, like backup certain tagged photos to the cloud, find out when an apartment is available or highly personal, such as satisfying secret Kardashian fetishes.

The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect LinkedIn Profile

The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect LinkedIn Profile | social media | Scoop.it

...Before we jump into these recommendations, let me make one more point perfectly clear. These are not necessarily recommendations for the perfect LinkedIn profile if you're looking for a job. I am writing this from my own perspective, as someone who is using their LinkedIn profile to connect with influencers, partners or prospects. I already have a business and I am counting on LinkedIn to help me grow that businessand reach more of their nearly 200 million active monthly users.

 

All of the recommendations below are just that, recommendations. Take 'em or leave 'em however you'd like. Each can be implemented by going to LinkedIn, logging in, clicking on Profile in the top menu and then clicking on the greyEdit button. This will put your profile in edit mode, and you'll be able to change anything you need to. You may also want to take advantage of LinkedIn's suggestions and recommendations by clicking on the blue Complete My Profile button. LinkedIn will ask you a series of probing questions designed to get your profile even more complete....

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills | social media | Scoop.it

Strong negotiation skills are hugely advantageous throughout one’s life, from the boardroom to the bar. These skills largely rest on your ability to back up your words with physical actions that exude openness, honesty, and confidence. This fosters trust and increases the other party’s desire to react cooperatively and reach agreement.

According to psychologists and a recent study from language experts Gengo, body language and non-verbal communications has a greater impact in a discussion than the actual words that you say.
