What an awesome idea. I think this is exactly what we'll be seeing more of, in years to come. Not just for hotels, but all businesses to accept social currency as a means to pay for the usage of a company's goods/services. If consumers spend more time promoting businesses, it will help those companies decrease their own incurred promotion costs. It's a win-win strategy for company objectives and customer satisfaction.

Jeanine Askew's curator insight, December 11, 2014 12:14 AM

Key Takeaway: Having your business mentioned on Social Media matters.

 

Contrary to what Laura explained in class, you have to post quite a bit to receive a seven night stay at Nordic Light Hotel. In addition to set amount of post you must also have 2,000 personal Facebook friends, 100,000 Facebook fans or 100,000 followers on Instagram. Clearly, this is only a great deal for famous people.


Even though famous people, are the only ones benefiting from this promotion this is very innovative idea. This truly exemplifies the power of social media.I agree with the Hotel if a person  with 100,000 Facebook fans writes  about their wonderful experience in the hotel, it's sure to get some traction.  However, Nordic Light Hotel must make sure the post sound organic and not forced if they want to increase the number of occupants in their hotel. Most people are no longer fooled by brands who advertising through celebrities.

Hubble has spotted an ancient fully-formed galaxy that shouldn't exist

Hubble has spotted an ancient fully-formed galaxy that shouldn't exist | The Amazing things in the world | Scoop.it

The galaxy BX442 is so large, so fully-formed, that astronomers say it shouldn't exist at all. It's called a "grand-design" spiral galaxy, and unlike most galaxies of its kind, this one is very old. According to a new study conducted by researchers using NASA's Hubble Telescope, it dates back roughly 10.7-billion years — and that makes it the most ancient spiral galaxy we've ever discovered.

 

"The fact that this galaxy exists is astounding," said University of Toronto's David Law, lead author of the study. "Current wisdom holds that such ‘grand-design' spiral galaxies simply didn't exist at such an early time in the history of the universe."

 

The hallmark of a grand design galaxy is its well-formed spiral arms, but getting into this conformation takes time. When astronomers look at most galaxies as they appeared billions and billions of years ago, they look clumpy and irregular. A 10.7-billion-year-old entity, BX442 came into existence a mere 3-billion years after the Big Bang. That's not a lot of time on a cosmic time scale, and yet BX442 looks surprisingly put together. So much so, in fact, that astronomers didn't believe it at first, chalking their unusual observation up to the accidental alignment of two separate galaxies. But further investigations, conducted at the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, revealed BX442 to be the real thing.

This article is about a galaxy that astronomers believe shouldn't exist. The galaxy is extremely old compared to others like it. Researchers estimate that the galaxy is about 10.7 billion years old, and they also say that such a 'grand design' galaxy with such well formed arms didn't exist at such an early time in the Universe's history. This article was very interesting to me since its amusing to know things about the Universe and the events that took place billions of years ago
