Re: What is the IW Pick Badge?
@Broadway0474      Interesting I didn't know that but I agree.  Liking your own stuff is bush league.  : )

Re: What is the IW Pick Badge?
@nomii, as an editor, I know firsthand what it's like when someone thinks their stuff is the greatest ever ... when it's really not that decent. That's why editors have always existed, and why crowdsourced content is contingent on other people's opinions ... not the creator hitting like over and over and over ... ; )

Re: Everything is mobile now
@Susan, the information I've seen indicates that the split in the US is more generational than socio-economic, and that the age split is an issue that will solve itself in the next decade. Those in their 70s and 80s still lean heavily toward feature phones while younger users are already deeply into smart phones.

Companies like Wal-Mart have made smart phones quite cheap here in the US: The real question for marketers is which platform to support with apps.

Re: Everything is mobile now
@PedroGonzales, one of the key issues is being able to discover which technology (or technologies) your audience has in place. For those who are trying to sell products or services to the general public, that can mean figuring out what sort of gadget "everyone" is using. One of the things that's becoming obvious is that there are huge differences from region to region or even nation to nation -- a situation that creates enormous challenges for companies trying to sell things around the world.

Working with what you have
This is a wonderful example of targeting a strategy to the people who are going to use it with what they have. By not expecting the workforce to go out and get something to be able to access the program, they worked with what they already had and can make some really good positive change.

Re: What is the IW Pick Badge?
@Broadway0474 is there anything wrong in that :). I think its perfectly fine to appreciate your own comment as others might not have that insight. But feels that it should be ....... I hope you can make out what is comming next.

Re: What is the IW Pick Badge?
@Technocrati, most any social media platform allows you to like your own junk. I have friends who do it, and have fought to urge to un-friend them ... on a lifetime basis.

Technocrati, the badge system hasn't been dominated by self-promoters to date :) Hopefully everyone finds it useful.

Re: What is the IW Pick Badge?
As for going down an intelligent path of conversation, it's funny how many different directions people can take on that path. There are lots of collisions on that road.

 

@Rich    Or some might argue it is a path not much traveled.   But of course that doesn't apply here !  Lot's of heavyweights at IW.
