Photographs by Peter DaSilva and Byron Smith, for The New York Times At home, families sit together, texting and reading e-mail. At work executives text during board meetings. We text (and shop and go on Facebook) during classes and when we’re on dates. My students tell me about an important new skill: it involves maintaining eye contact with someone while you text someone else; it’s hard, but it can be done.
The headline calls attention to everything that’s wrong with how businesses measure engagement in social media today. Businesses that invest any level of marketing resources in networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and the like (get it?) are being groomed to focus on soft metrics instead of the relevant activity that signals the strength and worth of a community. By weighing conversations, interactions, and views, businesses are fed raw numbers that demonstrate KPIs but they do not offer the insights necessary to glean ROI or deep understanding of what people do and do not want, need, or value.
Brian Solis is the author of the new book, The End of Business as Usual . He is also a principal analyst at Altimeter Group. AT&T has sponsored the following blog post. As you’ll no doubt read here over and over again, social media is important to your business. If you don’t engage on Twitter , Facebook , or Youtube , you’ll eventually go out of business.
Do you have a social media strategy for your business yet? If you don’t, you could be missing out on game-changing results. According to the 2011 Social Media Marketing Industry Report , 78% of marketers saw increased traffic with just six hours a week invested in social media. The businesses that do social media marketing well will see even bigger wins in 2012, as the gap between who “gets it” and who doesn’t grows wider by the minute. The good news? You don’t need to be everything to everyone anymore.
A vending machine in Coca Cola’s iconic red color and with the words ‘Hug Me’ displayed in the brand’s signature white font, has showed up overnight at the National University of Singapore. What makes this vending machine special is that it responds to physical hugs before dispensing a free can of Coke. Students on campus were pleasantly surprised to spot the Coca-Cola Hug Machine, which was installed as part of the company’s ‘Open Happiness’ campaign.

Back in the day when the web was born, the first thing everyone thought it would be good for, aside from porn, was ordering pizza. Today, porn still rules the internet and you can still order a pizza online. But things have gotten more sophisticated. And simpler.
French startup Jolicloud has tried on various suits as a cloud-desktop -OS -cum- netbook which aimed to let you access all of your social networks and media storage services (like Flickr) through one slick interface. Facebook and Twitter became icons inside Joli OS — which evokes the look of Chrome OS on a Google Chromebook. Joli OS has a dedicated community of users, but the company recently decided to shift its efforts towards producing a new kind of platform. "Jolicloud Me" launches in beta today and is essentially a repository of all the articles you've shared, photos you've uploaded, songs you've posted, and documents you've shared across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and more to come.
If there’s one good thing about Facebook’s timeline – it’s the cover. In fact, some might argue that it’s the only good thing about the new look. Thanks to a new third party service, InstaCover , it just got even that bit better. With InstaCover, you can easily transform your Facebook cover photo into a vintage-smorgasbord of Instagram photos – and they don’t even have to be your own photos. You can choose between your own Instagram photos, those by a specific user (you just need their user ID), a specific category, or any tags of your choice. If there’s one request we could make, because we’re just picky like that, it would be to limit photos to one specific filter.
