Data Growth .... Transform Communication ... Everyone is equal .... How Social Network has changed business
Constant Data Growth at rates that are too scary to even imagine .... demographics and data are changing at a pace that we are all trying to understand and predict. A recent HBR article discusses the topic of how social networking is changing business. The article indicates how leaders from companies such as IBM, Apple, Pepsico amongst others are all active users using the medium to get their message across to everyone in real-time. "Social networking is also flattening organizations by distributing access to information. Everyone is equal on the social network. No hierarchies need get involved."**
"A year ago, many people poked fun at Facebook as a place where kids shared their latest party news. Today more than 600 million users worldwide are active on the site. The most rapidly growing demographic is people over forty. More than 300 million people spend at least one hour a day on Facebook. Approximately two hundred million people are active on Twitter in spite of — or because of — its 140-character limitation. Another 100 million use LinkedIn. None of these social networks even existed at the beginning of the decade."**
