This book is about digital media. Even more, the book is about us. It explains how the ever-growing flood of digital media affects our perceptions of the world, change our behaviors and eventually transform our very existence. In the era of Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Apple, being online is the standard. We spend many hours a day gazing at our screens, traversing the virtual realm, and posting our tweets, tags, and "likes." Billions of years of evolution have prepared us for life at the savannas. It took us less than two decades to radically transform our biotope. Being online is no less than a fundamentally different mode of being. It is likely to produce a fragmented, detached, and distorted view of the world. What will be our understanding of the world when all certainties that result from living in a material world become useless? What will be our role and position when computer intelligence surpasses human intelligence? How can we avoid losing grip of the significance of identity, friendship, social engagement, and eventually life at large? The book explains the mechanisms and consequences of engaging in online spaces. It offers an accessible means for attaining a better understanding of the ways digital media influence our lives. It is a compact guide to becoming media literate and to preparing us for the advanced digital services that are yet to come. This makes the book an indispensable aid for every twenty-first-century citizen.

You'll quickly learn the mechanics of Twitter then be introduced to advanced tips, tricks and tools that will help you grow a large and dedicated following on Twitter. You'll read about real examples of third sector organisations successfully using Twitter, and how it's far more than a broadcast medium. Buy this book, (read it) and become a social media ninja for good. Don't just take our word for it... Twitter is a phenomena. It's new and fast evolving - launched as a tool with no plan it quickly emerged as THE microblog platform on the web. BUT it is vast and quickly changing - this guide offers an easy way in to twitter, to maximise returns and to avoid the time-suck that poor social media is. Hat's off to Jeremy & Jim for making it accessible and clear. Like a snow flake in an avalanche or a drinking from a fire hydrant it is easy to be overwhelmed by Twitter - but this book is clear about how to increase your signal to noise ratio, how to engage effectively and above all - how to get returns for your messaging so you are effective tweeter and not just a twit. ~ @Tom_Alcott, Tom Alcott, The Social Network Company. As newcomers to tweeting ourselves at SAIF, but already with 545 followers (yah!), this book provides crucial advice on how to make the most of the Twitter phenomenon. And although we try our best, quite frankly, we still have a lot to learn which is where Jim’s book comes in. ~ @saifscotland, Susan Burn, SAIF Project Officer.

As well as covering the basics of Twitter - how to create an account, how to set-up your profile to maximum effect and how/when/what to tweet - the manual provides a trove of hints, power tips and links to resources that will benefit any Twitter user. ~ @dancham, Dan Champion, Champion Internet. "I wish I had read this before I decided to make an account on twitter, it would have been so much easier to understand. The book is the ideal tool for people who don’t do social network sites. After reading the book I have decided to deactivate my initial attempts and follow the books direction. I never thought Twitter was such a powerful tool for charities and voluntary groups, the way you have explained the power and how charities can benefit from it is brilliant. I have many spent hours ploughing through funding searches, trusts and donors when all the time the very thing I was afraid of had all the answers and contacts. Jim thanks from converting the unconverted." ~ @BdaaTerry, Terry Moseley British Disabled Angling Association Now I finally 'get' Twitter.This comprehensive yet readable guide is a must-read for anyone wanting to market anything using the medium of the 'Twittersphere'. ~ @mrjtrading, Mick Wood, Web Hosting & Design for Christians I can recommend this excellent guide having read through it myself.

The first book to help organizations understand and harness the extraordinary workplace learning potential of social media Cowritten by the CEO of the world's largest workplace learning organization and a consultant and writer with extensive experience on the forefront of workplace learning technology Features case studies showing how organizations around the world have transformed their businesses through social media Most business books on social media have focused on using it as a marketing tool. Many employers see it as simply a workplace distraction. But social media has the potential to revolutionize workplace learning. People have always learned best from one another -- social media enables this to happen unrestricted by physical location and in extraordinarily creative ways. The New Social Learning is the most authoritative guide available to leveraging these powerful new technologies. Tony Bingham and Marcia Conner explain why social media is the ideal solution to some of the most pressing educational challenges organizations face today, such as a widely dispersed workforce and striking differences in learning styles, particularly across generations. They definitively answer common objections to using social media as a training tool and show how to win over even the most resistant employees. Then, using examples from a wide range of organizations -- including Deloitte, IBM, TELUS, and others -- Bingham and Conner help readers sort through the dizzying array of technological options available and decide when and how to use each one to achieve key strategic goals. Social media technologies -- everything from 140-character "microsharing" messages to media-rich online communities to complete virtual environments and more -- enable people to connect, collaborate, and innovate on levels never before dreamed of. They make learning dramatically more dynamic, stimulating, enjoyable, and effective. This greatly anticipated book helps organizations create a contemporary learning strategy that is as timely as it is transformative.

BE HYPER-SOCIAL. GET HYPER-SUCCESSFUL. "A thought-provoking read and a comprehensive introduction to today's business challenges as social media and social networking become increasingly vital to success. . . . Highly recommended." --Choice magazine "If you want to really understand what makes some online communities thrive while others shrivel and fade, you have come to the right place. Francois Gossieaux and Ed Moran understand just what makes us all so social—as customers, as employees, and as business partners—both online and off." -- David Rogers, executive director, Columbia Business School Center on Global Brand Leadership, author of The Network Is Your Customer "The Hyper-Social Organization is not simply a guide to navigate through the fundamental and far-reaching transformations of today caused by social media, but it also provides insight into how to optimize and profit from it." -- Mark Yolton, senior vice president, SAP "To the extent that we can be 'human' with what we know—and share it as freely as we possibly can—we'll go a long way toward fostering a deeper level of trust with consumers. The Hyper-Social Organization not only explains why that happens--it also provides a road map for how to embed it in all your customer-facing processes." -- Barry Judge, CMO, Best Buy "Rather than getting hung up on the 'media' side of social media, Gossieaux and Moran have figured out that the real killer app is the ability to create a 1:1 communication between your customers and your brand." -- Marty St. George, CMO, JetBlue "With this book's simple yet profound prescriptions for all parts of the organization, Francois Gossieaux and Ed Moran have distilled the chaos, excitement, and fear business is feeling from a world gone social into an elegant framework of understanding. (And I’m buying books for my whole tribe.)" -- Janet Swaysland, SVP of Social Media, Monster.com About the Book: Facebook. Twitter. YouTube. LinkedIn. Unless you're living in the Stone Age, it's hard to ignore all the social networking tools that have taken the world by storm. To keep up--and stay competitive--you need to rethink how your organization interacts with this brave new world. You need to stop marketing to consumers and start socializing with communities who know what they like and aren't afraid to share it. You need to understand the power of social media—and use it to your best advantage. You need The Hyper-Social Organization. Based on the famous "Tribalization of Business Study"--a wide-ranging annual survey conducted by Francois Gossieaux of Beeline Labs and Ed Moran of Deloitte--this is the definitive guide to using social media for organizational success. The book's surprising findings and in-depth interviews will challenge everything you know about corporate-consumer relations—starting with The 5 Steps to Being Hyper-Social: Forget technology—understand the four drivers of successful communities. Forget market segments and consumers—think tribes and humans. Forget company-centricity— think human-centricity. Forget channels—think networks. Forget process and hierarchies— think social messiness. Social media is changing the world as we know it. This book shows you how to change your organization and be on the leading edge of the movement. Instead of marketing to general target groups, Gossieaux and Moran reveal how you can refocus your efforts to home in on what matters most to people—the communities or "tribes" that are at the core of their "identities"—and unite them through their shared passions, problems, responsibilities, wants, and needs. You'll discover how to establish a real human presence on the Web and in social media communities and sites to open up a naturally flowing, mutual—and mutually beneficial—exchange of ideas and information. And you'll see what leading companies like Amazon, Netflix, Microsoft, IBM, Marriott, Eli Lilly, and others are doing right—and how you can do it too. Best of all, you'll hear fascinating, in-depth interviews with today's trendsetters about what their businesses are doing to become Hyper-Social. Being social has always played a key role in success. Being a Hyper-Social organization will take you to the next level.
