- Social Media ROI Examples & Video
A big question out there these days is: What is the ROI of Social
Media? Or the ever popular how do I measure the ROI of social media?
Often when I get this question it’s appropriate for me to retort:
“What’s the ROI of your phone?” Other times it’s not appropriate to
respond with this answer, which, if done in the wrong tone, or place,
can win you a free punch in the face. Then there are the naysayers that
adamantly proclaim, “We aren’t doing social media because there isn’t
- Understanding Enterprise 2.0 Tolerances & Scale
Small and medium business needs are typically very different to
‘enterprise’, which in general business usage tends to refer to
companies with over one hundred million in revenue. This can also be
misleading however since many ‘enterprises’ are in fact federations of
autonomous smaller business units.
- The Rise Of Networks, The End Of Process
The industrial influence in business management and theory is profound.
In essence, for the past hundred years business has been objectified as
a machine, divided into various components, like a clock or an electric
generator. Components are composed of subcomponents, and so on, until
you get down to nuts, bolts, and flywheels. People are — in the
industrial scheme of things — gears in the machine, and their purpose
is to perform a defined role in the assemblage.

- Twitter Doesn’t Create Influence, it Reveals it
You can’t read more than a handful of tweets before someone mentions
influence. You also won’t find a Twitter measurement tool out there
that doesn’t mention influence. Some may ask how Twitter made so many
people influential. It didn’t. I’d agree that it has made some people
*more* influential if only because it gave people greater reach, but
they had to posses some level of influence potential. (hmm, Influence
Potential, a new buzz phrase?)
- Is Facebook Getting Uncool for 18-24s?
Others aren’t so sure. “That [usage decline] could be for a small
percentage of the age group, but I would want to see more evidence to
show that that audience is running away from Facebook,” said James
Kiernan, svp and group client director at MediaVest USA. Kiernan
believes much of the decline in the comScore numbers is due to younger
people accessing the site via iPhones, BlackBerrys and other portable
devices and applications. That skews the numbers, as there isn’t a
single source that tabulates usage from all available platforms.
- Contact lenses to get built-in virtual graphics
A contact lens that harvests radio waves to power an LED is paving the
way for a new kind of display. The lens is a prototype of a device that
could display information beamed from a mobile device. Realising that
display size is increasingly a constraint in mobile devices, Babak
Parviz at the University of Washington, in Seattle, hit on the idea of
projecting images into the eye from a contact lens. One of the
limitations of current head-up displays is their limited field of view.
A contact lens display can have a much wider field of view. “Our hope
is to create images that effectively float in front of the user perhaps
50 cm to 1 m away,” says Parviz.
- A faster web with Resource Packages – Mozilla suggestion to have just one HTTP request
One of the most common problem on the web is slow web sites, wasting
the time of end users. Now, perhaps, Mozilla has come up with a
solution for this, which will be applicable for all web browser vendors.

- About Half in U.S. Would Pay for Online News, Study Finds
Americans, it turns out, are less willing than people in many other
Western countries to pay for their online news, according to a new
study by the Boston Consulting Group. Among regular Internet users in
the United States, 48 percent said in the survey, conducted in October,
that they would pay to read news online, including on mobile devices.
That result tied with Britain for the lowest figure among nine
countries where Boston Consulting commissioned surveys. In several
Western European countries, more than 60 percent said they would pay.
