Why your company needs to structure for social media right now
Edelman Digital    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Edelman has unveiled the 2012 Edelman Trust Barometer. It's the 12th year of the study, which tries to answer the seemingly simple question: "Who do you trust?" One thing is clear from this year's research: It isn't your CEO. Globally, only 38 percent of informed publics think CEOs are credible spokespeople. That's down from 50 percent from last year. On the other hand, trust in a "regular employee" showed a dramatic rise from 34 percent last year to 50 percent this year. More

No matter what the subject matter, issues need to be carefully managed. More

Pinterest: A tool to curate relevant visual content for your audience
Beth Kanter    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard where you can organize and share images and videos you discover on the Web. Think of it as social network of visuals where you can find images from other people with the same interest or use it to curate your own visual "interest space." The clean interface and simplicity of its features make it easy to use. At first glance, the site attracts people interested in using it for non-work interests, such as wedding planning, decorating, scrapbooking and family photos, but brands and nonprofit professionals are also using it to curate information related to professional and organizational topics in a visually pleasing way.

Harvard Business Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Stop making to-do lists. They're simply setting you up for failure and frustration. Consider the to-do lists you're currently managing: How many items have been languishing since Michelle Bachman was leading the field for the Republican nomination? How often do you scan your list just so that you can pick off the ones you can finish in two minutes? How many items aren't really to-dos at all, but rather serious projects that require significant planning? There are five fundamental problems with to-do lists that render them ineffective. More
