In an ideal world, I would hope that the parties could join forces to make the 2015 election an exciting and informative election campaign by ignoring the TV broadcasters and going straight to the Internet. I guess this will not happen until 2020 now. In any case, do you really think that the TV and radio broadcasters are not going to repeat everything that is said online?
Despite the highs and inevitable lows of being a business developer for the last 20 years, I've not only managed to create a great team since 2000 but we've also changed the way our clients think about how to open doors from cold.
Zuckerberg's support of Charlie Hebdo was questioned during a recent Q&A session in Colombia; specifically, he was asked why he has taken an interest in this specific incident as opposed to other terrorist attacks. "This was specifically about people's freedom of expression and ability to say what they want," he says.
Encryption isn't just used for social communication channels, it's also used to send most forms of confidential details over the internet, from online banking login details to credit card information for online shopping.
It's not a case of us not liking them. You only need to look at your newsfeed to come across a piece of content doing the rounds online. It's just that we don't want brands to specifically try and create virals.
Whatever the reason for the blocking, it is the right of the blocker to block whomever they wish, after all, it's their personal feed. Social networking is not real life and it must be remembered that we should separate the two.
My hope is that this picture contributes to the mounting evidence that confirms circumstance does not necessarily dictate capability and that soon enough the depiction of young, black, professional, female excellence will not need to be as impressive.
This week the magazine Charlie Hebdo will publish a defiant response to the terrorists who assassinated 8 members of its staff and four shoppers in a Jewish supermarket. This response will involve publishing an image of the Prophet Muhammad.
I'm perfectly happy to let Google (and a few select others) collect, collate and monetise my data in return for the outstanding services it delivers me at no financial cost. I don't find the benefits of Facebook sufficient to allow it the same courtesy and thus, thankfully, don't have to suffer the desperate status updates of people I haven't seen in 20 years.
I see gossip as marketing - direct and indirect. In other words, what others say about me and I say about myself. Ideally the two would concur.
Social media networks such as Facebook can be easily addictive, because we are interested in what our friends are up to lately. After all, we are social animals who love our friends...
Successful YouTubers now have shows on BBC Radio 1, Penguin book deals, cosmetic ranges and spend a lot of time traveling the world, whilst millions of subscribers buy into their brand.
Does your Chief Executive have a blog and use social networks to improve his or her communication? If you answered yes, then congratulations, your boss clearly appreciates that the way we all communicate today has changed beyond recognition in the past half-decade.
Your profile is supposedly a 'private' representation of your life that only a select few can see, and it is individually interpreted. Yet, as much as we try to ignore it, the trends of online activity amongst Generation-Y are proving to be unhealthy, addictive and damaging.
Whilst the world around us changes at speed and the internet disrupts so many familiar institutions, the time seems ripe for a shake-up of the British political system too. In an era when even the most robustly stout businesses are falling victim to hacking, isn't there some internet salvation to offer us a way out here? Maybe 2015 is the year that the internet - and social media in particular - finally hacks the British democratic process? There seem to be several clear ways that the outcome of this year's vote could be swayed by social media.
Google will provide an answer to pretty much anything, but I'm afraid there are some things that Google just can't help us with. Google can't tell you what you should be doing with your life, or reassure you that you made the right decision yesterday. So, in our fragile, digitally reliant states, we worry. And more and more of us are worrying more of the time.
