Jesse Wojdylo860,222Over the last few months I have noticed many people using Twitter to supplement Google+ or the other way around. I think there are some very effective strategies that can be used. This week we will get some of those strategies out on the table. All the information you need on Google Plus Chat is available here: http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/google-plus-chat-twitter-chat/ In December of last year I really jumped on Twitter in a big way as I love the real time updates and the sports engagement. This has yet to come to Google+ so I spend my weekends chatting it up with college football and college basketball folks. While doing that I notice plenty of other awesome social media users that know and love the Google+ platform. This led me to these discussion questions: 1. How long have you been active on Twitter? 2. Do you use Twitter for pleasure or business? Or pain? 3. Do you auto post to Twitter? Do you post Google+ Posts? 4. How do you use Twitter to supplement Google+? 5. Mention some active Twitter users that may enjoy Google+ 6. Do you want a Google Plus Chat on Christmas Eve? Please join us for #googlepluschat  on Twitter every Tuesday at 2:00 pm est. We will discuss if there will be a Christmas Eve event or not.

If Tesla can put a self-driving car on the road by 2020, Uber wants half a million for their fleet

This is far from official, but if it happens would be a game changer for Uber as they continue to face issues with their drivers being recognized as contractors rather than employees.

It would also be a great boost for Tesla to get the public more familiar with their vehicles.

For the consumer, how about taking an Uber ride to test out this self-driving technology for yourself?

Well, it took a while. But, Howard Stern has finally discovered ad-block software, and possibly educated many more as a result.

It's a pretty interesting 3-minute SoundCloud clip of Stern having a revelation. No dpubt many of his listeners were thinking he is way late to the party of ad-free web browsing. But, I wonder how many this software was news to.

As technology allows people to avoid intrusive advertising, marketers must adopt better ways of reaching consumers than just plastering messages everywhere you look.

This is a clever idea. $20 to de-stress a little and have fun breaking things. I smell franchise opportunity. Tag someone you think would benefit from a few minutes in the Rage Room.

Very interesting disclaimer by Warner Bros. preceding the airing of older cartoons.

I think it is a positive step for the company to acknowledge the prejudices on display in some of these works.

Ten Rules of Brand Building

Here's the best thing I've read this morning. Great thoughts on building your brand. Not rules, exactly. Just really good opinions based in experience. Check it out!

"Impactful branding comes down to a sense of security, which makes it easier for a customer to hand over his paycheck for your product. By staying on-brand and on-calendar every season, what you’re really doing is creating that trust and familiarity with the consumer. Like a friend (A friend who gives you lots of money over and over again)." - Brand Building rule #3: "Consistency Consistently"

"Swipe right to connect with millennials"

Members of this digitally native generation want to shop, work and interact with your brand the same way they date – easily and intuitively.

This doesn’t mean your company (necessarily) needs to go out and build a trendy mobile app, but you do need to create an experience that is intuitive, valuable and fun for your audience.

Many decision-makers in companies today are from an older generation, so it’s easy to overlook how differently millennial consumers want to interact with your brand. The good news is they aren’t shy about telling you. This generation will provide a constant stream of feedback via social media – you just have to be willing to listen.

What's above is #4 in a short and sweet list from Brian Solas on how to truly be customer-centric.

Why you can’t ‘copy and paste’ with enterprise mobility

A mobile strategy must be approached with a focus on the unique and greatly valuable experience that mobile devices enable. A cut and paste job onto a mobile device will not deliver the goods for users.

Mobile is about more than just access. These are tools with an enormous array of features that can be leveraged to deliver any kind of experience you want. Don't hold on to the limitations you had before mobile.

Why does workplace collaboration continue to struggle after mobility is introduced? 

Here's a really thought provoking read on the constant challenge of connecting a workforce in one way or another and getting the right level of collaboration to be as efficient and productive as possible.

This article's focus is on the disconnect between CEOs, CIOs and CMOs, and how they approach the challenge of enterprise mobility.

Here's a good piece about the CIO specifically:

The first action CIOs need to take is to understand how employees need to collaborate at work, with the business’s systems, partners and customers, to achieve the goals of the company.

This has next to nothing to do with technology; it is about identifying what underpins the operations of the business. Who needs to be connected to who, what, when and how often.... more »

Then, they must focus on assembling a mobility and collaboration platform that focuses with laser-like attention on enabling and fostering those connections. Providing access to the right tools, however, isn’t enough.

How does your company approach collaboration through mobility (or through other means)? What are the biggest roadblocks?

Mobile's Biggest Challenge - Offline Access

Here's a really good analysis of the concerns surrounding offline access to a mobile app in the many cases where a connection is unavailable. It includes 3 different approaches and when to use them.

---

"Building a robust offline solution may be the most difficult development challenge in mobile, as mobile apps requiring network connectivity for baseline functionality limit a company’s brand appeal and growth."

"Most emerging markets, and many developed ones, have areas where cellular connections are constrained at best. Apps smoothly employing offline functionality will differentiate brands as showing concern and understanding for all customers, regardless of their network context."

Drive Mobile Value by Moving Beyond Basic Apps

Some thoughts from Accenture Mobility on enterprise apps. Here's a taste...

Q: What kinds of apps do businesses try to mobilize first?

A: If they're just getting started, typically they're working on the more transactional applications, which are really basic, simple apps: submitting some sort of approval request, or time and expenses applications. Once you look beyond that, you're really looking at changing business processes. It's looking at field service technicians: How can we make them more productive? How can we give them better tools and access to information that they need while they're out on the job?

6 tips for looking beyond the obvious when developing enterprise mobile apps

Great read on the value that lies beyond just making a business process "fit" a mobile screen. 

"A big advantage of mobility is building data entry into the workflow so that it’s part of the process. As a user looks up information, a well-designed system automatically records what he or she does and updates customer and sales records without the user having to take an extra step of making separate notes in the CRM."

"At the heart of all of these challenges is the constant pressure to meet expectations, no matter how difficult that may be. The right tool is all employees need to meet those expectations, on time and without breaking their backs."

If Tesla can put a self-driving car on the road by 2020, Uber wants half a million for their fleet

This is far from official, but if it happens would be a game changer for Uber as they continue to face issues with their drivers being recognized as contractors rather than employees.

It would also be a great boost for Tesla to get the public more familiar with their vehicles.

For the consumer, how about taking an Uber ride to test out this self-driving technology for yourself?

Some police have a strategic way to use these public social networks to further investigations.

When you think about the amount/kind of stuff people put on their social profiles this should come as no surprise...

What Investigative Activities Are Done Via Social Media:

▪ 75% Identify associates affiliated with persons of interest
▪ 70% Identify location of criminal activity
▪ 60% Gather photos of statements to corroborate evidence
▪ 80% Identify criminal activity
▪ 85% Identify persons of interest
▪ 55% Identify/monitor persons of interest’s whereabouts
▪ 30% Soliciting tips on crimes
▪ 32% Anticipating crimes that may be occurring
▪ 40% Understanding criminal networks

Volvo Designs a Luxury Rear-Facing Child Seat

I like the overall design of this with extra compartments for storage, the swivel to avoid having to put the child in on an angle, and the position towards the front allowing the child to stay rear-facing longer (3 years old is impossible for a seat that hits against the backseat and leaves no extra leg room). Very interesting design.
