5 Facebook Marketing Tactics that Work Any business owner can create a Facebook page, but surprisingly few employ social media tactics that will win fans, engage customers and increase sales. Having a static, one-sided Facebook presence is antithetical to everything social media stands for.

Charlar trae beneficios mentales - ALDEA GLOBAL Para nadie es un secreto que conversar con un amigo resulta ser, en muchas ocasiones, la mejor forma de encontrarle solución a un problema. Sin embargo, ¿alguna vez pensó que sostener esa conversación amigable puede mejorar, aunque sea por un lapso pequeño, sus habilidades mentales? Así lo asegura el psicólogo Óscar Ybarra, investigador de la Universidad de Michigan, Estados Unidos, quien no solo demuestra en su última investigación que una conversación amigable puede ayudar al cerebro a resolver problemas, sino que concluye que, cuando la conversación no es cooperativa sino competitiva, y cada persona solo desea imponer su punto de vista, la interacción social no trae beneficio cognitivo alguno para las partes. Para llegar a sus conclusiones, Ybarra, junto con un grupo de colegas, evaluó el impacto de breves conversaciones, de unos diez minutos de duración, en el desempeño mental de 192 estudiantes universitarios.

Don’t build a boring online community | Community Building Online communities tend to fail for the same few reasons: Lack of focus and understanding – There’s often too much focus on features and technology (most of your potential members are not interested in these but for some reason they’re top of your priority list). Failure to ask ‘how’ – How will you attract members and get them talking? You spend days/weeks/months building the community website rather than building community (they’re two different things). Talking to people and building relationships is more important than the website itself. A community website without members is an oxymoron. Failure to ask ‘why’ – Why will people want to join your community? In this article, I want to focus on the very last point; is your online community fun? Is your subject interesting enough? Let’s say you’re in the early stages of planning an online community. People are lazy when they go online. You need to think differently – in this case, don’t build a community that discusses toner cartridges.

Web 2.0: Internet y más allá · ELPAÍ Pocas generaciones a lo largo de la historia tienen la oportunidad de ser testigos de cambios tecnológicos de la envergadura de aquellos a los que nos hemos enfrentado durante las dos últimas décadas, aquellos que modifican los hábitos sociales y culturales y que se consideran como tecnologías disruptivas. En este sentido es fácil reconocer que una de ellas es la telefonía móvil, que ha revolucionado la forma en la que nos comunicamos. La otra tecnología, sin necesidad tampoco de pensarlo mucho, es Internet. Con más de 1.000 millones de internautas en todo el mundo, logrados en algo más de una década desde su desarrollo, la Red se ha convertido en el entorno de comunicación más importante de la Historia. Asistimos a una nueva generación en la que el éxito no se mide en el Nasdaq, sino en el uso que millones de usuarios hacen de las aplicaciones Web 2.0, Internet de nueva generación, networking, software social... nuevas etiquetas para una realidad emergente y compleja.

BoostZone: Communities vs. networks vs. collaborative teams vs. Several conversations in the last days have made me think that we need to progress on some definitions.
