Simplifying Social Media Taking Your Brand from the Bench to the Playing Field Social Media Fundamentals for Business I finished the book knowing much more than when I started and now feel empowered rather than overwhelmed. Julia, Executive Director Tenth Grade Tech Trends — Product Design A few months ago, my fifteen-year-old sister told me that Snapchat was going to be the next Instagram. Many months before that she told me that Instagram was being used by her peers as much as Facebook. Both times I snickered. Learning from past mistakes, I took some time over the holiday break to ask my sister many, many questions about how she and her friends are using technology. Below I’ve shared some of the more interesting observations about Instragram, Facebook, Instant Messaging, Snapchat, Tumblr, Twitter, and FaceTime.

A Place to Call Their Own — Acumen: Ideas When the Prophet Muhammad first started to share the words of the Qu’ran and spread Islam, he was forced to flee his home of Mecca due to persecution. He, along with the Emigrants who had left their homes behind for the sake of their faith, found refuge with the newly converted Muslims in Medina. These Muslims — known as Ansar, or “The Helpers,” — embraced Muhammad and the Emigrants as their own, providing them with food, shelter and security. It is this spirit of generosity and brotherhood that led Jawad Aslam to create Ansaar Management Company (AMC), an Acumen investee that provides affordable housing to the low-income communities living amidst Pakistan’s rapidly growing urban sprawl. A Muslim himself, Jawad was dedicated to providing everyone in Pakistan, regardless of income, with a place to call home. “The Ansar truly embodied the concept of brotherhood, showing how an ideal society of complete strangers could live and thrive,” Jawad said.
