We know you've already figured out how beneficial your social media strategy can be to your hospital. But that doesn't mean that your hospital execs have. Why are they so reluctant? I have a theory… In Elisabeth Kübler-Ross' book, On Death and Dying , she says people go through five stages, when it comes to grief and tragedy.

Yup! I’ve been thinking of blogging about the movie on Mark Zuckerberg and his journey to the first 1000,000 friends, ever since I saw the movie. A “MUST” watch cult movie, for sure! However, I was not so impressed by the Hollywood allegory and dramatization. I liked the warm, fuzzy promo film about Steve Case’ AOL – “You got mail” a whole load better.

This list is a bit of a “Tongue in Cheek” look at why the CEO still wants to use the Yellow Pages and not embrace the “ New Marketing ” of the 21st century. http://www.jeffbullas.com/2010/01/11/40-reasons-why-the-ceo-still-uses-the-yellow-pages-and-not-social-media/
http://www.jeffbullas.com/2009/07/30/17-facts-and-figures-about-online-video-how-important-is-it-for-your-seo-and-getting-found-online/ Online video is becoming a very important part of online search, and needs to be included in your companies planning for being found online and to optimise your web site for Organic SEO. So the questions you need to be asking are. What are the latest developments for “Online Search” where your business or organisation is trying to be found online?

A new iPhone app called Yobongo is launching Thursday, with plans to make building connections between locally-based, like-minded users easier. The app provides a simple chat-based interface that groups users based on location and seeks to make it easier for people to get to know each other both in-app and in the real world. Yobongo works by selecting people based on where they’re located, and grouping them together in virtual rooms of 10 to 15 users.

Business world not ready for millennials I’ve spent a lot of time on the road with clients lately. Among the topics we discussed, managing the changes associated with the current generational transition was the hottest. The conversations focused mainly on the differences in consumer behaviours between younger and older buyers, and in work and career orientation between millennials and those in senior management. I think the topic is not only fascinating from a human behaviour perspective, it’s also an important discussion for every management team in the country that’s looking outward at customers and inward at employees.
By JESSICA E. VASCELLARO When Katie Miller went to Las Vegas this Thanksgiving, she tweeted about the lavish buffets and posted pictures of her seats at the aquatic spectacle "Le Rêve" at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel.
