Should You Hire Staff Based on Their Klout Score? Should employees be evaluated on the price of their ‘social currency’? That’s a question we were discussing in PSFK recently when our consulting team asked us all to come up with ways to help a prospective client of theirs judge the effectiveness of retained work. We talked at length about using a “Klout score“ as a metric to judge an employees’ level of cultural participation. Klout’s system monitors the frequency and shareability of people’s updates across social networks such as Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook and Pinterest. Through an algorithm, the service gives a score to everyone who signs up – and because Twitter is indexable by spiders, the social scoring service has a number for every tweeter with a public account. You can watch a video of an interview conducted by PSFK’s head of consulting, Scott Lachut, during our San Francisco event last year with Klout’s founder Joe Fernandez where he explains the service and its implications in greater detail.

Cynical Optimism Date / / Category / Personal Geraldine sometimes tries to describe my outlook on life as cynical optimism. I think that’s a fair assessment. I generally believe that humans will do a lot of stupid, selfish, hurtful, tragic things to each other and themselves. I see this as exacerbated by behavioral and evolutionary psychology, which is poorly understood and even more poorly compensated for on an individual basis. There are so many poor decisions I’ve made personally merely because I’ve been hungry. But, in the long term view, humanity’s been doing remarkably well. (via Pinker’s TED talk) There will be those in every age who argue that we’ve past the climax and that things were slightly better in the recent past. I liked Matt Ridley’s recent piece in Wired- Apocalypse Not: Why You Shouldn’t Worry About the End of Times. This mode of thinking is something I see in miniature throughout my personal life and the eocsystems I touch. Mr. Humanity is a fast-moving target.

The Internet a Decade Later [INFOGRAPHIC] Remember in 2002, when computers like the Apple iMac G4 were the sleekest on the market? Internet users were just starting to use high-speed broadband access, instead of that slow dial-up. Gone were the days of waiting. We could download a whole song in 10 minutes! Fast forward to 2012: Computers are even more polished, and the Internet is faster. Ten years ago, Internet usage was more of a leisure — today, it's practically as important as water or oxygen.

A new bank set up to lend to small businesses - do you think it will have an impact? What impact do you feel new bank, Shawbrook, will have on your business? In case you missed the news, Shawbrook Bank launched this October amidst a fanfare of publicity. My hope is that this can only be a good thing. Week in, week out, I meet with business owners who have big ideas for their businesses, and a good chunk of them have the confidence and investment available to see through the big thinking. But at the same time I think back to the retailer I met in January, desperate to launch an online shop presence, who simply couldn’t get the funding to make her dream happen. There are things you simply can’t do well yourself – and whether that’s having an ecommerce site developed, investing in a new logo or website or buying a new piece of machinery or taking on staff. In my experience there are numerous examples of businesses that need to make the investment, but don’t.

How to Increase Your Search Rank Using Social Media Jasmine Sandler | August 22, 2012 | 0 Comments inShare89 Web marketers and PR professionals must pay attention to how social media affects search, and ultimately how it can change the rules of online visibility and brand engagement. The rules of search have changed. In fact, they change on a daily basis. Social media's influence on driving business via the web is expected to surpass search engine optimization (SEO) in 2013, according to eMarketer. Prior to Facebook's takeover of the online universe (800 million active users today), online visibility in natural search was a sum of several measurable components: SEO site compliance on site structure and meta tags/content, directory link submissions, and qualified and relevant site/blog-linking. Today, the line is blurring. So how can you use social media to increase your SEO rank and ensure that the rank and ensuing traffic will convert to web business?
