  • Which is in contrast to recent #FoxNews reports claiming it makes children dumber.

  • good but it is more about the benefits of connectivity than social media per se šŸ™‚

  • As a writer aiming for world domination (not an author, yet) having Google+ on the desktop on the second screen gets the creative engine going again. It's like a power pill. Use in moderation.

  • +Richard SoaresĀ This is an IQ test: who would you believe…researchers or Fox?Ā šŸ™‚

  • right….

  • +Guy Kawasaki thank you. I knew that from both my experiences and high studies too, but I'll always be interestedĀ  in getting up-dated information which has to increase my productivity and real(!!)relationships too..best regards!

  • +Guy Kawasaki Maybe some bosses think being online is like the days of instant messaging? So different now. We are blessed to have access to such bright minds and ideas. I'm inspired daily.

  • +Guy KawasakiĀ +Richard SoaresĀ No matter which direction you lean the "results" we're presented with will almost always beĀ biased. We should never disregard research data just because of how it's reported.

  • Fully aware=online employees


  • Thanks Guy. Ā Interesting new data.

  • +Guy KawasakiĀ I'd follow the research always. My comment was to reference theĀ ridiculous (sound bite) reporting some media outlets produce.Ā I wondered if anyone else had heard the FOX claim. Good stuff from you always. šŸ˜‰

  • Great post
