I immediately identified with today’s infographic, provided by Real.com, because it describes my wife and I to a tee. When we are both watching television, we are alternating between looking at the screen and looking at our phones. It’s comforting to know that this is a widespread practice, and not something anti-social, as someone once told me. I wasn’t listening though as I was checking my phone at the time. In Ye Olden Dayes , before the “ Age Of The Internets “, we used to have this unique experience where we would sit and endure TV adverts.
I have been astounded at the number of social media jobs brands large and small have created over the last year. With each month, more brands realize that Social media isn’t an afterthought; it’s something that takes time, strategy, attention and even aggression to keep ahead of the pack. With all of these new positions come a large number of employees who are making their first foray into the world of Social Media.

The energy efficiency of computing is doubling every 18 months IN 1965 Gordon Moore, a co-founder of Intel, first observed that integrated circuits, better known as silicon chips, seemed to conform to a predictable law: since their invention in 1958, the density of components in each chip had doubled each year, and this trend was, he suggested, likely to continue for at least a decade. In 1975 Dr Moore modified his prediction, observing that component density was doubling every two years.
