-Choose a meeting space with a timer
-Don’t wait for late or missing attendees
-Tell the other attendees that you have to log off at a certain time.Make an agenda and enforce it
-Chop the guest list
Common sense but worth keeping in mind every now and again…
-If we stopped automating social media
-If we only shared things we actually liked
-If we looked at social media like a tool
-If we learned how to disagree
-If we paid more attention to the local tie-in
At first there were brands, next came search, algorithms, human links… And then algorithmic authority and predictive creation? Not sure I fully understand and even less agree with the 2 latest points, but very interesting analysis anyway.
Despite the increasing integration of Online Social Networks (OSNs) activity into everyday life, however, there has been no research on the most fundamental question about OSN profiles: Do they convey accurate impressions of profile owners?
A widely held assumption, supported by content analyses, suggests that OSN profiles are used to create and communicate idealized selves (Manago, Graham, Greenfield, & Salimkhan, 2008). According to this idealized virtual-identity hypothesis, profile owners display idealized characteristics that do not reflect their actual personalities. Thus, personality impressions based on OSN profiles should reflect profile owners’ ideal-self views rather than what the owners are actually like.
A contrasting view holds that OSNs may constitute an extended social context in which to express one’s actual personality characteristics, thus fostering accurate interpersonal perceptions.
Which is true? A brilliant study by the University of Mainz.
