1. The rate is the same in Canada, 2. Obesity is increasing in part because the metric to measure it is antiquated (average BMI from 1963-1994) 3. Its amazing how every documentary these days blames "corporations"... How about the parents?

The corsages come from a Louisville, Kentucky florist, cost $20, and contain a $5 gift card so you can customize your corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy, or Kentucky Grilled Chicken.

Dr. Steven Horng launched a Google Glass pilot program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center late last year because he thought the futuristic device could help save lives. One night in January proved that. A patient with bleeding in the brain told Horng he was allergic to certain blood pressure drugs — which the doctor needed to slow the hemorrhage — but didn’t know which ones. Horng had little time to leaf through the man’s medical files or se...

More Evidence That Twitter Is Disconnected From The Mainstream

That was the headline for the article that went with this graphic. I believe the headline is wrong. (Would not be the first time ! :)).

All of America is not on Twitter. In fact I would argue that a surprising percentage of America does not even know what Twitter is. But everyone has TV. Yes, sadly everyone.

So anyone trying to make a case that Twitter represents TV tastes or TV anything is being silly (including, if this is the case, Twitter).  If they also believe that "brand engagement on Twitter" will drive overall TV show watching (or store sales or software downloads by everyone) then they are being silly squared.

A percentage of America is on Twitter (Me! http://goo.gl/tihSfi). Of that percentage, a certain smaller percentage talks about TV shows they are watching on twitter.  Of that smaller percentage a smaller still percentage has Followers who start conversations about those TV shows. Of that smaller still percentage some tiny percentage will be influenced to watch the TV show because they have never watched it before. This will boost ratings.

So. Be on Twitter. I cannot mean that more. Understand who is there. If your TV shows are being discussed, participate in the conversation. Expect a small boost. 

But to think Twitter (or Facebook or Google+) represent America is stilly. To think that you can take your "lame top ranked NCIS" and "make people talk about it on Twitter" is silly. It won't. Because Twitter, see a pattern here, does not represent America.

A great product sometimes creates great social conversation. If you see that conversation, participate and encourage. If you don't see social conversation, don't force it. Just go back to creating a great product.

I love how +Nest keeps fixing/modernizing all these annoying and antiquated appliances. Surely they'll eventually offer a pre-fab house with all their gear pre-installed... no doubt called "Nest". Today you can check out the #NestProtect: a smoke + carbon monoxide alarm:
