It’s seems like theses days you are more likely to see a commercial saying “like us on Facebook”than not. Brand involvement has always been the name of the game but today’s technologies allow us to be more involved than ever. Theoretically you can talk directly to Oreo or Coke by posting on their Facebook walls. So why is this so important? When you have customers interacting with your product even when they are not using it you have created a customer base more loyal than others.

Social media has allowed companies to become more responsive than ever before. Today’s infographic Social Customer Service: The Next Competitive Battleground shows us that companies are responding quicker than ever to their customers complaints. In fact about 84% of social media use is geared towards improving customer service. [via]

Finances: 20 Things You Should Know by 20 [Infographic]

Spending money somewhat carelessly can be a hard habit to break, especially if a person is college-aged and has never been taught how to wisely manage their funds. Partying is fun, but too much beer or fast food can quickly leave a college student’s wallet (and probably stomach) hurting.

Today’s infographic outlines 20 financial tips that anyone 20 years or younger (or even older) would benefit from knowing.

One of the points stressed is that if a person doesn’t have the ability to pay for something in cash, they should not use credit to purchase it. This makes good financial sense; if the purchase someone is making with credit will make them unable to pay their credit card bill, they shouldn’t make the purchase. If more people could really understand that at a younger age then it could help reduce the number of people struggling with credit card debt.

For more helpful financial tips refer to the infographic below.

Ray Bradbury Predictions Fulfilled [infographic]

We lost a great man this year. Not only has Ray Bradbury written some of the best science fiction stories of the last century, he’s also been a trend setter of sorts. I’m not saying that Mr. Bradbury was a hipster, though it’s pretty great to imagine Ray relaxing to some obscure dark wave bands and wearing cut off corduroys with ray-bands, brainstorming a short story… He was however, an idea man who created devices within his stories that have since predicted many of the common technologies that we use today.

Much like Jules Verne, who predicted such technologies as the submarine and lunar modules, Ray Bradbury has continued the great tradition of sci fi writing prophecy which has sparked our imaginations so deeply that we have manifested many of these same objects within our own reality. Things that Mr. Bradbury has imagined have had social and technological implications as much as 40 years in advance of their physical manifestations. Stuff like ATMs, cell phones, ear bud headphones, smart homes, video camera surveillance, and flat screen tvs all were imagined in Ray Bradubury’s stories. It’s amazing how art often informs society as much as society informs the art. To read one of Ray Bradbury’s books or short stories is to take a deep look into the human condition and its evolution with technology. Highly recommend reading his novel Fahrenheit 451 as well as short stories “Frost and Fire” and “A Sound of Thunder”. RIP Ray… [via]

Maximizing Millennials: Why to Hire Gen Y [infographic]

With the economy still struggling, my generation is having a hard time finding jobs. It isn’t from lack of effort or lack of skill, it is just a bad job market. Salary size means less to us and more about just having a salary. One in three millennials say social freedom, flexibility and work mobility were more important than the amount in their paycheck and I can only agree. Working from home isn’t always the best choice, but sometimes it is. Feeling sick or tired? Don’t go into the office, just work from your living room. Many jobs now don’t absolutely require everyone to be in the office everyday. The employee feels like the have more control over their life, and at the same time still are working to further the company.

My generation also likes to work towards our passions, not just to get a job to have one. This mentality may hurt us now, but hopefully will pay off in the future when our experience has been built up. With 30% of Gen Y’s believing meaningful work is very important to them, packing boxes at a factory or sitting in a cubicle isn’t our idea of fun. [Via]

Rising Gas Prices [infographic]

Ah the good ol’ days. When the temperature was cooler, I was thinner, and gas was below $2.00. I remember my mother shrieking in astonishment at her first glimpse of $1.50 gas price. Today, gas isn’t all too bad where I live; right now it’s at $2.81 and keeps going down every few days. However, it’s still expensive enough to where I had to decline an internship an hour away because of gas prices.

Today’s inforgraphic gives a historical overview of when gas prices began to inflate. It also lists when theater and tuition prices began to rise as well. I remember when movie tickets prices were low and going to an evening movie was the place to be. Now, an evening movie ticket sells for $12.00 each! Sorry Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum, but I’ll have to resist seeing ya’ll on the big screen this week…

In all, the price of living has become a burden on the public. Inflation has caused the average Joe to re-evaluate his priorities and watch his checkbook. However, the good life can still be lived if we all make some budgeting and make a nice meal at home instead of going out. Perhaps it’s an activity that will bring the family together like the good ol’ days. [via]
