But it is hard to blame people for the dramatic belief that the icon’s end is near given his ongoing health issues and his weight loss. Further, Jobs’ sudden departure from the day to day helm of Apple broke a monotonous summer of no technology/social media news. Perhaps it’s simply time to balance his life a little more because life (health, family, mind, etc.) demands it. Keep breathing the air, Steve.

You can steadily build a community a few people at a time, initiate discussions, facilitate early interactions, and then gradually invite people to contribute regular blog posts. I don't like content-driven communities. The model is usually backwards. In theory it works like this. You get 20 to 50 people creating content for your community, this attracts people to the community. The problem is few people want to create content for a non-existent audience. People are motivated by efficacy. The motivations dies.

Pinterest has done wonders in particular for blogs and for websites who have taken interest in creating supporting pages and picking proper images. As with any site, the more exposure received the better it is for your brand, in particular organic exposure. Organic is content seen by people on the site and is numbers or views that are not inflated with fake or irrelevant accounts. With that said, it is not always easy depending on others to repin your pins and in some instances promoting pins can help further your reach. Cats and Bacon image via infographr].

It seems strange to begin a retail blog post by talking about a lack of consumer data. Much of what’s currently written relates to how leading retail brands are getting closer to their customers by analysing data. But there is one area in which even the most advanced retailers know comparatively little about their customers and have very little usable data – namely their in-store behaviour. Very few companies have even attempted to collect meaningful behavioural data in-store. None have cracked it. The benefits to retailers of data exhaust left behind by customers are clear.

Feeling you're unique and that your contribution matters increases both your participation and the participation of those around you. This is partly social loafing.
