  • 3 Habits For Managing Your Social Media Footprint

    first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting “It’s incredibly easy these days to get your thoughts out from your brain to the screens of people everywhere, and it’s critical you take the time to pause when you feel emotions stirring. It’s not just big brands and celebrities who make these missteps. More than ever you are judged by your public persona. Make sure it represents who you are completely, not just in the heat of the moment.” —Matthew Arevalo, social media marketer who’s worked with T-Mobile, Electronic Arts and AT&T on the importance of using social media efficiently. Use self-control. Get off the grid. Curate. These three habits will help you manage your social-media footprint and make you more effective, whether you use the medium for work or pleasure. Here’s a functional, easy guide to do just that. Self-ControlIcons and avatars give the illusion of anonymity on the Internet because people there aren’t shouting to the masses. And they can be free of true identification. Feeling at least somewhat removed from a post makes some more open with opinions, even detestable opinions. The need to self-control, or the lack of it, falls into two types of violators. One has the above habit, using the veil of secrecy to post what they would normally not. The other, is the type that cannot stop themselves from using the Web to surf, procrastinate, and do anything and everything besides what they probably should: Working.If you fall into this category, and lack appropriate self-control, there’s a good app for you, and it’s free. Wisely, it’s called Self Control. The Self Control app limits your use of email and social media, locking you out of designated sites for pre-determined periods, while still giving you broader online access. If you can’t stop trolling Facebook to see if your latest update got liked. And if you suffer from both afflictions, ranting anonymously and surfing in dangerous water, this could put you on a much needed time-out.Go Off The Grid OccasionallyLet’s say you’re careful about what you post. Very careful. You know about the risks of over-sharing. You’re the consummate professional. But, your’e always ready to respond. Always available. That can be exhausting, and exhaustion often leads to irritation, which usually ends with embarrassment. What to do?Get off the grid. Fellow RW writer Brian Proffitt recently wrote that knowledge workers should change their always-on mentality and stop answering email after business hours. Why: It improves your mood. Effective workers enjoy what they do. Once overworked, by your boss or your own over-accessibility, your spark and motivation drop severely.So, take some time off, stow your mobile and get away from it all. My colleague Jon Mitchell did just that for four days. And while his digital detox is probably different from what you’ll experience, you can feel the same thing he did: Recharged and re-inspired. Make this a habit and watch your productivity rejuvenate. Curation 2.0The final habit you should employ could be one of the most important of all. Make sense of all the white noise out there. All the voices. How do we filter it all? Turn to curation, a growing, but misunderstood, concept that can save you tremendous amounts of time directing you to what you need to know. I like a service called spundge, which helps me filter search results so they are more effective, saving me a ton of time. When you’re searching for specific, nuanced topics, this site gives you results in an easy-to-digest format that spares me from Google readers and extraneous searches. Now I spend that time on what I should be doing: Working. This habit I can’t stress enough, and it’s only getting more refined. The next step in curation is personalization.Personalization is what Facebook mastered from the get-go. Suddenly, each person’s online experience was truly personalized. A company called Gravity is moving this concept further. It uses adaptive artificial-intelligence techniques to make news sites, like TechCrunch and CNN Money’s iPad app, more individually relevant. Gravity monitors your habits to give you more of what you’ve looked at before.And with semantic-analysis abilities, Gravity monitors news and posts for trending topics. If enough people talk or post about an item, that content appears on your home page. “Think of it like a reverse search,” explained Jim Benedetto, Gravity’s chief technology officer. He compared his company’s service to pioneering adaptive-music player Pandora, which categorizes content fairly granularly and listeners rate songs to influence future content.  Related Posts adam popescucenter_img Tags:#curation#social media A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

  • Study hints that wearables are terrible at counting calories, just like their users

    first_imgHow Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Ryan Matthew Pierson Tags:#Apple#Basis Peak#Fitbit#fitness trackers#Internet of Things#IoT#wearables Can IoT Bridge The Gaps In Modern Mental Health… Related Posts center_img 8 Unusual Ideas for a Dentistry Business FDA Extends Collaboration on Living Heart Proje… A new study out of Stanford measured the accuracy of seven wristband activity monitors and found that while six out of seven wearables measured heart rate accurately, none of them were able to accurately measure calories burned.The study involved 60 volunteers from a larger pool, selected specifically to represent a diverse set of subjects. These participants included 31 women and 29 men of various skin color, body type, etc.Participants were asked to wear these various wrist-mounted devices while undergoing tasks such as walking, running, cycling, and sitting.How fitness trackers are good…The fitness trackers examined in the study include:Apple WatchBasis PeakFitbit SurgeMicrosoft BandMio Alpha 2PulseOnSamsung Gear S2The devices in this study did a fairly good job of monitoring the participant’s heart rate. In fact, six of the devices measured heart rates to under a 5% median error rate during walking and cycling while the Samsung Gear S2 scored a slightly less stunning 5.1%.A 5% variance is something medical professionals can work with. “For a lay user, in a non-medical setting, we want to keep that error under 10 percent,” Anna Shcherbina, one of the authors of the paper, said.…and how fitness trackers are badWhile the seven fitness trackers featured in the study did a pretty good job at keeping up with participant’s heart rate, the error rate in calculating caloric expenditure was a different story.Out of the seven devices tested, the most accurate one was off by 27.4%. That honor went to the Fitbit Surge.The least accurate device of the bunch was the PulseOn which with a stunning error rate of 92.6%.This study shows that fitness trackers, as much as we rely on them to give us at least mostly accurate data, may not be giving us a true account of our activity at all. Users rely on these devices to let them know when they have hit their goals on steps, heart rate, and caloric burn.If this research is accurate, at least one of these three measurements should be taken with a grain of salt.last_img read more
