Half Of Young Professionals Value Facebook Access, Smartphone Options Over Salary: Report

For a whole new generation of tech savvy young professionals, having access to social media or the right smartphone in the workplace is at times more important than earning a higher salary. For businesses, that means adapting to this change in priorities rather than resisting it—if the Mad Men-era job force expected noon whiskeys and female secretaries, then our modern day equivalent demands Facebook and iPhones.

The findings come thanks to Cisco’s second annual Connected World Technology Report

Day old news is fresh enough

The value of breaking news (news = whatever is new to you) is dramatically overrated, and the cost of keeping up with what someone else thinks is urgent is just too high.

If it’s important today, it will be important tomorrow. Far more productive to do the work instead of monitoring what’s next.

[Exceptions: Emergency room doctors, producers at CNN, day traders.]

Agile planning (PPT)

But I guess central to my theme here is that though there is much talk of the impact of digital, particularly around social media platforms, and the importance of failing fast and so on, my sense is that the kind of fundamental change that is required won’t happen unless we actually change the way we do what we do and the culture that surrounds that.

Infographic: The History of F-commerce

With F-Commerce being billed (and for some time now) as the next big thing, it’s interesting to take a quick look back at the short history of F-Commerce so far. And at the same time, with industry predictions at up to $30 billion in Social transactions by 2015, it’s even more interesting to note that only a very small percentage of retailers and brands are actually transacting socially so far. 

Trivia

Most Liked Facebook Shop - Lady Gaga’s

First F-Commerce Transaction - A $34 gift ordered from 1-800-Flowers.com

Facebook’s Cut from FB Credits - 30% (ouch!)
