Why You Should Plan Your 2016 Social Media Strategy Now

With the holidays approaching and the prospect of time off, vacation, presents and parties, it can be really hard to try and focus on January and beyond. Like, really, seriously challenging. But you need to bite the bullet and start planning your 2016 Social Media Strategy now.

Why is now the right time?

First of all, many people close out the year by doing retrospectives. They look back on their efforts, identify what worked and what didn’t, close out their quarterly and yearly goals, and generally immerse themselves in the year that was. All of that information should absolutely guide your entire 2016 strategy.

You should continue doing whatever was working well—and allocate budget accordingly—possibly expanding on it or ramping it up in the new year. You should identify the weaknesses in your existing strategy and plot out ways to plug those holes starting in the first quarter.

You can also break down what topics that you covered in great detail and establish those that deserve more attention in 2016. Finally, look at what people are already predicting as social trends for the new year, and ensure you’re prepared for swings in that direction. In summary, the final few weeks of the year should provide you with the insights and data that will make your next year more productive.

Another reason to start planning your 2016 Social Media Strategy right now is the simple fact that the first few weeks of January are probably going to be very unproductive. We all have this idea in our heads that we’ll come back from the holidays refreshed and raring to go. The truth is, most of us sit back down at the desk that first week of January with a big frown on our faces. Another holiday has come and gone and, let’s face it, we’re not all that excited to be back at work. People tend to take time getting back into the swing of things, and it’s very unlikely that you’ll be able to hammer out your next strategy during this crucial period.

Instead, build your strategy now, so that when you get back to work you already have a plan laid out. It takes far less concerted effort to follow the plan than it does to create the plan in the first place.

Top 8 Ways 3D Printing will be Disruptive

One obvious future trend that I don't hear being talked about enough is how 3D- printing is going to disrupt business, healthcare, manufacturing, clothing apparel Retail and more. I recently saw a Ted Talk about a woman who 3D printed her own fashion shoot, while the clothes were primitive, you can tell just how close this is on the cusp of happening. How 3D printing will disrupt the food industry a bit further off, is going to be even more life-altering.

The idea that the products in the future will be downloadable, like music is today, seems shocking, but will seem completely natural not too far from now. The convergence, a pre-singularity stage is basically starting circa 2016.

If Retail isn't preparing for this, a lot of people are going to be losing their jobs pretty soon. Retail already has a reputation for being late technology adopters, as one can witness in how slow some stores are to adopt a cloud POS system. We already know that in the next 10 years manufacturing will be nearly totally robotized.  When 3D-printing gets a bit more mainstream, the world is going to start to realize just how major a shift this is going to be. I've selected some unique lenses of how to view this coming disruption. Feast your imagination on this.

As a consumer, as an amateur futurist and a tech watcher, I'm convinced 3D printing will become mainstream very fast, since its benefits are so intimate to how we interact with the world and how capitalism will be evolving along with Fin-Tech.
1- Sustainable automation of manufacturing. Less transport, less logistic chains, smaller job force required, longer life span of products, more customization to consumers. Fewer unsold products.

2- Mass production revolution, with the ability to disrupt the following industries: Electronics, Automotive, Food, Military and Food. Also ability for self-learning AI to self-engineer.

3- Making the home high-tech with consumer printers, house goods, toys, tools, customized downloads of blueprints, likely a 70 dollar industry by 2030, According to research firm Strategy Analytics.

4- Accelerated Prototyping. Think about it, everyone including your grandchild, will be invention new products that will be downloadable. Prototyping will become so fast, consumers themselves and not retailers will govern the process in the future. With drone delivery, you can imagine the number of startups this will result in. Completely disrupting how capitalism works basically. AI will facilitate breakthroughs in prototyping so rapid, nobody will be able to keep up but the true fanatic.
The get to market times, speed of distribution, will be so cost efficient, just the idea of shopping and paying money for something will begin to seem ridiculous. Those that can distribute the raw materials and digital blueprints will be the true winners. Who wants clothes made by people in China with horrible working conditions that aren't even custom made to fit us?

5- Low volume production. With this tool, hyper customizing will actually make sense. The cost of production will be hacked to such an extent that we won't have to exploit the poor workers of other countries to get goods on the market. Shopping will be more creative and ethical, maybe humanizing the ugly side of capitalism a bit. "Made in China" tags will become a rare collector's item. Countries with big populations may be more vulnerable to this disruption however, places like China, India, etc. 

6- Virtual inventory. Holding inventory (of product or spare parts) will no longer make sense. Speed of this technology will be the key. It will be print on demand (PoD) all the way. This will increase efficiency and automate Ecommerce, making such things like warehousing, insurance, shrinkage and obsolescence a lot less relevant.

7- Innovation Renaissance. Imagine a world where everyone is a "maker" and a potential crafter, inventor and coder of new products. Gen Alpha, will be engineer just by the tech at their disposal. Creating our own complex and useful products will be part of our leisure time activities, family activities even. The first phase will be current Retail disrupting capitalism with 3D-printing, but that stage won't last long. Customer centricity ultimately means people downloading their own products and printing them at home. The idea that there were once stores and people who exploited other people for profit, will seem archaic.

8- Predictive Production.  The astonishing increased efficiency, will mean even what you want will be for the most part AI automated. Your virtual personal assistant (VPI) will even be able to do the designing and search for the downloadable blueprint that corresponds to your needs, giving you products (via predictive analytics) you need before you even realize it you'd like one.

ISIS -- Sympathizers In The U.S. Are Mostly Young, Male And American

After the Paris attacks renewed fears of brat plots in the One States, a new papers by Martyr Pedagogue Lincoln's Software on Extremism offers one of the most umbrella looks to familiar at the Islamic Commonwealth militant grouping's supposed U.S. supporters.

Piece fill emotional with crimes concerned to supporting the militant foregather don't deal any one special background, ethnicity or determine of inception, the rumination shows that the majority of these individuals are new, individual and Dweller citizens.

Since Walk of 2014, the U.S. has hot a unconditional of 71 group for offenses maternal to involvement with the Islamic Commonwealth crusader meet, according to the contemplation.

Around 86 percent of those arrested are men. Their normal age is 26 and the vast figure of them are U.S. citizens. Despite these similarities, withal, there are vast differences in their backgrounds.

"They're old, they're youthful. They're colorful, they're bad. They're place edifice kids, they're college-educated," Seamus Hughes, a co-author of the interrogatory and assistant manager of the Software on Extremism, told The WorldPost.

"It truly runs the gamut when you look at the literal cases of fill who change been arrested in the U.S."  

Aviator, fella author Lorenzo Vidino and a team of researchers analyzed thousands of pages of ineligible documents to see who was state inactive for connections to ISIS in the Allied States. The team also conducted interviews with prosecutors, journalists and the families of the suspects.

What Poet and Vidino institute defied "any cookie-cutter strikingness of the Denizen ISIS booster," the document states. But the news's judgement active the ordinary age of the suspects does appear to show a change from time terrorism-related arrests in the U.S.

"The big takeaway is that in terms of judicial cases, they're trending younger," Flier said. "The norm age is 26, but in one-third of the cases, they were 21 life or junior."

Cardinal of the inactive suspects were low 17 geezerhood old. The youngest was an unnamed 15-year-old boy. And gross, the arrests weren't piled in one country of the land, but kinda took send in 21 dissimilar states.

In improver to having diverse backgrounds, suspected ISIS supporters in the U.S. are believed to aid the scalawag administration in a difference of ways, the account states.

"You bed so-called "keyboard warriors" -- individuals that are in their parents' house tweeting out ISIS propaganda," Airman said. "On the another surface of the spectrum, you make someone like Abdullah Pazara, who was a mid-level commander in Syria."

The document also notes that over 250 Americans feature either successfully connected ISIS in Syria and Irak, or love attempted to do so. That amount is portentous, but pales in similitude to the sign of recruits in parts of Collection and Northwestward Africa, where, in any countries, over a thousand citizens person near to attempt for extremists.

The Performance on Extremism drawing echoes the findings of early analyses of outside fighters, which direct that individuals join the Islamic Denote reformer foregather for a group of reasons.

"Adulterant fighters are not a large entity, and not every one of them is suchlike the guys you see in recruitment videos," said Peter Neumann, manager of the Transnational Eye for the Meditate of Radicalization, in an interview with The WorldPost parthian gathering.

"Junior grouping are deed, quite old group are feat, regularize women are accomplishment. Their motivations differ as advantageously."

The Package on Extremism informing also documents the pervasive use of multiethnic media among suspected ISIS supporters in Earth, and notes that around 40 percent are converts to Muslimism. It also finds that over half of the ISIS-related soul arrests since 2014 came via informants or undercover officers.

This use of postpaid informants is a disputed use. Critics impeach the FBI of using informants to coax susceptible individuals into carrying out plots they would not person pursued otherwise.

Seized together, the document's findings exposit the structure and modified structure that hundreds of Americans could embellish enamored of a fell terrorist set.

"When we reckon of ISIS achievement in Ground, it defies smooth psychotherapy," Aeronaut said.
