SLOMO: THE SECRET FUEL OF SOCIAL MEDIA

SloMo is not to be confused with the currently very hot SoLoMo acronym So this past week during a social event in Marrakech, I met the charming “Michelle Adams” and a – by his own account – photographer, British, living in New York, that drinks tea fellow by the name of Patrick Cline, aka @PatrickCline. Within the time constraints of the event – a photo shoot at @Peacockpavilion for @lonnyMag – and during the rare breaks, we exchanged busines cards and the traditional social platitudes. Although it is still some people’s reality today – and this post is really for them. Let us now imagine this encounter happening in a world without the social networks we know today.  With good enough reasons, that encounter may be followed up by an email exchange or two.  Email, being the reflected and daunting communication medium we know: Can’t write too much to stay relevant, must take the time to read to stay polite; this could have gone one of two possible directions: a one-way street, where the exchange dwindles and dies a mutual spark of interest about photography, interior design or social media; giving way to sustained email communication over time…meeehhh not very likely The reason for this all or nothing situation, is that we have managed to speed up just about everything in our lives; but despite speed-dates, and speed-interviews, there’s still one thing that necessitates time and it is the building of human relationships.  Email communication is ill suited for that and wanting to rush any human relationship into strengthening is like wanting to make a cheese souffle in a microwave. Fortunately, in today’s world, there’s a third possible direction. @Michelle_Adams, @PatrickCline_ and myself, we are all using twitter, instagram and probably 3 or 4 other networks.  What is now available to all is the ability to consume, share, transform, leverage, comment on or choose to ignore without much consequences, each others social updates.  Tweet by tweet, picture by picture, bit by bit, their on own terms and schedules. It is then like stretching and slowing down time.  Where you once had the choice between as=it-happens-live-no-rehearsing and reflected-daunting-blow-by-blow communication means; we now have an a-la-carte, always-on, on our terms opportunities to communicate, connect and create new relationships. The most blatant example of this I’ve seen so far is in the field of education.  How Twitter is used in large amphitheaters to all together engage all students even the shiest and open up opportunities for the conversation about the particular course to continue well beyond an hour or two of teacher lecturing.  Opportunities also for a new kind of relationships between teachers and students and between students themselves Did you have SloMo experiences on social networks? Care to...

HOW THE INTERNET IS REVOLUTIONIZING EDUCATION

A few highlights on this infographic illustrating one of the most fundamental shifts happening in education today.  just as remote commuting is exploding, the wave has moved upsream into the younger strata of society with e-learning. 1971 enrollment at the Open University: 25,000 students.  Today it is the largest UK university with 250,000 students. Online education industry: $34 billion By 2019, 50% of all classes taught will be delivered online and many for free Half of online student are 26 years old or more higher education is, reportedly, no longer only for the elite. Anyone with an internet connection can educate themselves On the latter point, one might wonder about the headache recruiters are bound to have.  Going from a model where: an institution name or even just the name of a degree already, gives out clues about the qualifications of an applicant to one where many of the applicants are self-taught online and may have a lot more practical experience available for the enterprise to tap into. Do you think this is something likely to happen? Companies are already using what some might call “strange” recruiting methods.  Google receives 1 million resumes every year and – if they are serious about hiring only the very best – cannot possibly only rely on pieces of paper that after looking at 10, all look the same.  Google now use questions that some call crazy or absurd; maybe or maybe not.  Either way, these are now as famous as feared by applicants; “A man pushed his car to the hotel and lost all of his fortune.  What happened?”, “How much would you charge for cleaning all the windows in the city of Seattle?”, “How many ping-pong balls could you fit in the Mediterranean sea?”… William Poundstone, author of “Are you smart enough to work for Google?”, recently told the times that: “Studies show that traditional interviews don’t reveal enough, they throw these eccentric questions out to gauge how creative, open and flexible applicants are”.  This type of interviewing is no longer exclusive to the geeks of Silicone Valley; it has spread like wild fire to all industries.  ...

FOR COUPLES (AND LOVERS)

Thanks to a tweet by Jeremiah Owyang (aka @JowYang) I found out about this new “network” that may be pointing out to a new kind of “social” The kind that’s closed and limited to the one person of your choice. In this case only two. The name is simply “Pair”, self-described as: “An interactive way for you and your partner to share everything”. With concepts such as “thumbkissing” and “sketch together”, the iPhone app has some interesting features. This, opens up a bunch of questions, each of which could be the subject of a thesis on its own: Data @JowYang is wondering about the intricacies of managing and leveraging the data produced by such a network. Joining is free now but they’ll need a business model sooner or later. Leveraging the data of one person’s social activity is complex enough; try generated by two people. Three targeting opportunities become available: what’s the behavior of one person, the other AND what is it when they’re together “Nicheworks” Much has been written on the advent of concept, where the very popularity of social networks is viewed as eventually as a shot in its own foot. In the beginning, Facebook might have only grouped your close like-minded friends. But with close to a billion member today, the like-minded only part may long be gone thus potentially reducing the appeal and driving the search for new like-minded only social networks. Cheating Rumor has it that 20% of US divorces are to blame on Facebook, @OWStarr (aka Oliver Starr) rightly raises the point of increased cheating. The Pair network being at the opposite of Facebook from a “privacy” standpoint: two and only two can use it at a time. Let’s note that the creators seem to have anticipated these critics to a certain extent; i.e. pairing can only be done with one person at a time; no polygamy possible. “Social” Another interesting question is raised by @RicDragon (aka Ric Dragon) and potentially challenges the very definition of “social”. When a network is limited to only two people does it really warrant to be called a social network? Maybe, maybe not. Any other points this raises in your mind? Share with me in the comments section below. I’ll keep an eye on this interesting “animal” and come back on each of the above...

A GUIDE TO THE NEW FACEBOOK TIMELINE (INFOGRAPHIC)

On March 30th, Facebook will switch all profiles and pages to the new timeline display. If you haven’t made the switch yet, your profile and page may show a “gaping hole” after that date and until you do. Even if you have made the switch here’s a handy guide from the folks at iframe apps with some great tips. For those living under an online rock, with the “Timeline” is the new Facebook profile with which Facebook wants you to “Tell your life story” (…) “through photos, friendships and personal milestones like graduating or traveling to new places”. Let’s see what...

WHAT THE WEB’S 3.0 VERSION MIGHT LOOK LIKE

Jim Kohlenberger recently released a paper outlining what the Internet’s third act might look like. He is a former White House policy adviser to two U.S Presidents and is President of JK Strategies – a public policy consulting practice. The report points out a now well understood concept by the geekiest amongst us, the “Internet of Things”. Marissa Mayer, Google’s Vice President of Location and Local Services, back in May 2010 started explaining in her presentation entitled: “The Physics of Data”, what the impact of the average person uploading 15 times more data in 2009 than they did just three years ago, might do to the web as we know today. In hi report, Jim Kohlenberger outlines that the nternet has undergone three major revolutions in connecting: places then people and now on its way to connect things. In it Jim Kohlenberger outlines a series societal benefits but also the risks that may stifle this coming revolution. Benefits: Smarter transportation: mobile applications like Waze are already in that field, connecting cars to each other: Fully utilizing smart traffic technology could cut fuel consumption on urban roadways by as much as 20 percent Smarter energy and better environment: By 2020, the utility sector is expected to make up to 62% of M2M connected devices Smarter Business Smarter payments /POS: One especially powerful device application is new point-of-sale services that can create new business opportunities, give consumers more choices, and created new pay-as-you go business models. Smarter homes Smarter Security Smarter Cities Smarter healthcare and patient monitoring All of this will be accelerated by technological advances; Moor’es Law making it that faster, smaller, smarter, and more capable devices are possible every 18 months. Higher resolution sensors can enable to us to connect to our world in ways beyond just our seix senses. Steve Jobs was definitely on to something by democratizing access to touch devices; thin film technologies could soon turn almost any surface into a connected touchscreen display, and enable affordable intelligence to be implanted into almost anything. Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies can enable new forms of mobile commerce and better human comuter interaction can unlock new applications. google/Ipsos’ latest research report on Mobile Internet and Smartphone Adoption is already demonstrating a current trend in the 3.0 direction where people are now more often using phone-like devices than laptops or desktops to access the internet. Stifling Risks. This coming digital device deluge will further accelerate mobile opportunity and exacerbate the looming spectrum crunch. But lack of available spectrum could stall, stifle, or even stop these benefits from coming to fruition. Facilitating Steps Five key steps are advocated by the report: Catalyze innovation Through a Wireless Innovation Fund (WIN) Accelerate Smart infrastructure Development and Deployment Advance a Smarter Electric Grid to Boost Efficiency and cut energy costs Speed up the Medical Device Approval Processes for Wireless Connected Technologies Ensure that more of these connected devices are made in America by Supporting American Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing The Full report can be accessed below. Privacy remains is of course a concern and plenty of conspiracy theories can be imagined from here. What’s the craziest one you can think of? Let us know in the comments below. The Internet’s Third Act: The Connected Device...
