If youre old enough to remember this description of Superman and are in charge of your companys marketing and reputation, read this because the environment has indeed changed and there is also a new sheriff in town and its name is social media. What is faster than speeding bullet today is the even quicker rapidity of social media and the importance of your online reputation. Remember the incident a few years ago where some employees of a national chain thought it would be fun to post video of them defacing their own pizza brand? Employees get fired, of course, but not before million viewers saw the degrading video and were turned off. It took months, numerous apologies, and a lot more dollars of advertising for the chain to recover from what many viewers think was revolting. Companies that are slow to recognize the importance of their online reputations are suddenly learning that they must not only heed social media but also take actions to meet the kinds of challenges that can pop up overnight and bring them down within days, if not hours. Why is social media so powerful? Unlike your morning paper stories, fake news and rumors have eternal life in the social media environment. Before social media, we relied on face-to-face discussions or perhaps phone calls to exchange ideas, rumors, and feelings with friends and family. Social media has opened things up so strangers can connect with strangers from all over the world. This isnt to say social media is all bad. There are positive aspects to it as well. Barack Obama used social media successfully in his presidential campaigns. The biggest difference between social and traditional media is that the latter targets mass audience while social media is individual. That is why negative comments online about company or products can be magnified many times over within minutes if others who are equally unhappy also chime in with their complaints. But used wisely and successfully, social media can also enhance your brand and reputation. If a customer posts a story of a satisfying experience with your product online, that may influence other buyers. Social media has the ability to bring like-minded people together. That may also explain the popularity of many various and virtual social discussion groups. Think about large companies that have shuttered many of their locations or even gone out of business. They never anticipated that shoppers would be going online to order merchandise. They either refuse to change with time or fail to recognize the new environment. Differences can be as simple as recognizing the speed at which social media moves, recognizing and working within it. Failure or refusal to acknowledge the pros and cons of social media can have a powerful impact positive and negative on your company and your business.

Analysis

Friday, March 9 2001 If you think Superman is fast, talk to Marcus Knudsun. His z accelerator uses magnetic field to hurl tiny plates at speeds up to 20 km / sec. At 20 times faster than bullet fire from a rifle, tiny plates are fast enough to leave most Superheroes in dust and also help aerospace and telecommunications engineers simulate how space debris affects the metal skin of orbiting satellites and space observatories. Knudson is a physicist at Sandia National Labs who is researching how materials react to pressure and temperature. Impact velocities of space debris can be quite high, on order of 20 km / sec., Say Knudson. The amount of mass that is launched to high velocity is limited to a pellet weighing a couple hundred milligrams, he say. Technology will allow testing of debris shields, something that would be of interest to NASA and the communications industry. Technique is said to be the fastest, cheapest, and easiest way to determine how materials react to high pressures and temperature. Characteristics are expressed in formulas called equations of state. Equations aid understanding of how materials react in extreme applications. For more information, contact Knudson at 845-7796 or mdknuds Sandia.
