[Marketing] Driving Intelligence and Analytics with Omniscience
And although it looks highly theoretical, it's already suggested a practical application that I haven't seen on the market. It started with a simple challenge: if I were to draw a big circle around the things I find interesting enough to follow and declare them to be one thing, how would I label it? To avoid flying completely off into pointless musing, assume that it's relevant professionally. Considering that the circle included social media, analytics, intelligence, geopolitics, and natural disasters—to pick a few—the label wasn't obvious. The label was Omniscience.

The screenshot belows shows how users are able to search and book flights directly within Facebook.

In essence, the experience of booking a flight is now becoming “social and is being translated from online to offline. Novel?
