Conversations on… climate change in Australia

Friday, April 13th, 2012

The 1000heads team in Australia has begun taking a series of online ‘conversation snapshots’, in order to better understand the interests, passions and profiles of people active in social media across the country. Below is the first of these observations, looking at a spike in conversation about climate change – the result of the publication of the State of the Climate 2012 report.

What’s fascinating about this insight is the split in opinion between people on Twitter and those posting in forums and on blogs, as well as the heavy weighting towards men talking about the issues.

The debate will of course continue.

 

Social business: mobile doesn’t always mean virtual

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Is your business ready to be mobile? Because your workforce is.

Social contact manager Gist has put together this infographic on the rise of the mobile worker and, as you can see, productivity is no longer synonymous with desk-bound nine-to-five. A mobile business culture is going to be very important to the next generation of talent.

However, it is important to remember that mobile working does not necessarily equate to working virtually. We have had the tools to work remotely for decades now, and we still rely on water coolers and meeting rooms. We still travel thousands of miles just to share the air with a colleague; video conferencing is as disappointing as it ever was.

This is because the fact remains that nothing beats face to face contact when we’re getting a job done. It brings energy, challenge and emotional investment to our work, prevents misunderstandings, ensures quicker resolutions, and allows much more chance for serendipity to surface.

Yes, working socially means using the best social technology available – but it chiefly means working by engaging with people. And that’s still generally best done in the physical world.

Of course, it’s great to opt out of the rat race. Some focused tasks are much better done in a room of one’s own, where we can put the outside world on silent. When we feel like we have the freedom to move where we wish, that sense of empowerment often brings more passion and ownership to our work.

But when we’re not tethered it’s also much easier to be social, as well as solitary. We can go and see people, rather than always talking on the phone. We can mingle on the shop floor while we’re creating that customer service strategy. We can dip between different regions, departments and desks, ensuring that we’re not solely sharing with and learning from the one guy who sits next door. This is where I think the real value of mobile working lies.

Mobile technology is a gamechanger; I couldn’t work effectively without it. But make sure you’re using it to be more social in the real world, as well as online.

Haye v Klitschko: The Infographic

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Last week, after getting all excited about this past weekend’s BIG FIGHT, I tasked our hardcore team of crack word of mouth analysts with monitoring and tracking all the social media buzz leading up to, during and after the main event.

Working tirelessly through the weekend (along with our creative team here internally and our design team at Lethal), they’ve just produced this awesome Haye vs. Klitschko online/offline infographic, check it out

What is WOM?

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Diving into day two of our month long 10th birthday celebrations, we’re going to answer one of the longest-standing questions that we get asked almost weekly (if not daily)…

Exactly what is Word of Mouth?

Our creative team has been beavering away on a handy little infographic for your viewing pleasure -

Download the PDF from slideshare (recommended)

We’ll be getting a couple of these framed and put up in the office very shortly, in the meantime – if you’d like your very own version of this poster, leave a comment and we’ll get in touch when we start printing.

In the meantime take a look and let us know what you think, share and share alike :)

“Word of Mouth: The Most Powerful Force in the World!”

See you back here tomorrow, for more Birthday shenanigans…
