Why all Social Networks should build a Publishing Platform
Social Networks are great places to discuss and share ideas. While many networks have developed various proprietary video apps, they do not have a place to write and publish original content. LinkedIn did a great thing by creating the long form post. The long post form allows users to create, publish and share their content with users on the site. Recently, LinkedIn allows users to create three SEO tags to categorize their work. LinkedIn also offers various leaders across all verticals; the opportunity to become influencers. Influencers content is published and then shared with all users on the site through LinkedIn Pulse.
Social Networks that build Publishing platforms similar to LinkedIn will get the benefit of not only content curation but content creation.
Allowing users to create original content on Social Networks will lead to users staying on the site longer; creating more engagement.
Keeping users more engaged will help social networks to sell more advertising to brands by offering them different options like sponsored articles. Social Networks will benefit from increased traffic because users can stay on their site as opposed to having users clicking links and being directed to another site. Brands will be able to team up with social networks to create and co-create an amazing user experience and increase revenue at the same time.
This needs to researched and tested by social networks.

How to Unsend a Message in Gmail or Google Apps
Everyone has sent an email that they wish they had not. Now imagine that you had the power to unsend that email!
Google is now allowing users to unsend an email that was sent out for up to 30 seconds.
To set up the unsend feature, you need to take the following steps:
1 Sign into your Gmail/Google Apps account.
2. Click on the gear button in the top right hand corner of the screen. A drop down menu will appear.
3. Once the drop down menu appears, click on settings. The settings section is where you can manage your email.
4. On the settings page, scroll down to the undo send feature. Make sure to click the box to enable the feature. Gmail gives users a choice of how long they can cancel a sent email. 5, 10, 20 or 30 seconds after it is sent.
When you send a message on Gmail, you are prompted to view the message or undo it. If you decide to undo the message; a window pops up with your original message.
This is how you can unsend an email on Gmail/Google Apps.
I have included a video from Tricks Tac on how to set up and use the unsend feature.

How Education is being Disrupted
The field of education is changing at a rapid rate. We can see these changes at all levels, especially at the K-12 space. Instructional shifts, Common Core standards and instructional technology are disrupting the way education is provided to students. SMART boards are used in a majority of classrooms which allows Teachers to make lessons interactive for students. The Teacher centered model is being replaced with the Student centered model. Students of today need constant stimulation, especially with technology. Traditional teaching methods and hardcover books do not stimulate the learners of today.
The Teacher of today is faced with more challenges than ever before. However there are more opportunities than ever before. The testing and education technology space is a multi-million dollar industry. Venture capitalists are investing millions in ed-tech start ups.
So what does this mean for the teacher? This means that if teachers decide to take their educational expertise and apply it to creating high quality instructional materials that everyone can use; they have the potential to earn more money than the average classroom Teacher.
Teachers have more challenges than ever before but they also have more opportunities as well.
