after hours and naturally found myself gravitating to Facebook, which led to the games. A bout of sickness and day time TV and I was quickly hooked on Yoville and farmville - so silly I thought, such a waste of time.
But like your analogy above playing these games has given me an insight into how the industry is built, the methods and linkages and the need for constant change and action on these media. Now I am recovered and have the best Farm you ever saw on Farmville!! I have applied what I have learned to my work, looking at how to keep the audience interested and find a way to 'pull' as well as 'push' to the time stream of Twitter and Facebook. We still don't have access to FB at work, so all this has to be done after hours, but as I am in Australia this actually works quite well.
I am 40 and believe learning anything new is just about dedicated effort, application of time and plain old fashioned motivation.
for the simple reason that a selection process always has a PLUS and MINUS factor.
If being a "gamer" (player of games on FB) is the hook and you're going to the top schools in Europe--for the top students--you may be setting yourself up for a fall if your "high profile client(s) is "B" operator in their industry. What is "high profile client"? In America that can be good and BAD.
And going after the top cut of talent, in the top schools anywhere, invites inspection of you and your client base. Should that wobble out as weak or a "stuffy brand"--the Facebook crowd will hear about it PRONTO with a speed and reach that only social networks as big as FB can muster?
Also, the top companies in Europe and America are already deeply invested and connected to the top schools in their respective geographies. To them you'll only be identifying candidates who like to play games on FB.…
ill certainly argue that filling any position has an inherent pecuniary focus). Tortious interference is much more difficult to prove and typically ends up in an "agreement."
I wonder where this thread will go today?…
