A Social Media Backlash? Integration versus Privacy

November 18, 2013 | Daniel Fogel | HCI

Social networks continue to integrate themselves into our daily lives in new ways and with an increasing pace.   Sometimes this integration is welcomed with open arms, and sometimes its reception is a bit less friendly.  Such is the case with Google’s recent change to its YouTube anonymity policy.   As of November 6, 2013, YouTube members can only comment on videos with a Google Plus account.  Frustrated members have created a petition at to voice their dissent.   With over 150,000 signatures, YouTube members have expressed their desire for privacy first.  Will Google’s forced integration of YouTube and Google Plus boost g+ membership or push YouTube users away into new and different platforms?

Video Interviewing Phenomena – Fad or Future?

October 22, 2013 | Shahbaz Alibaig, Recruitment Technology Manager, GE | HCI

Is video interviewing technology a fad or our future? Whenever I am asked this question, it makes me recall the success story of Netflix.

Today, I hardly see any Blockbuster stores, while Netflix has become a household name. In other words, my take is that video interviewing technology is here to stay and will continue to evolve and be used beyond interviews and screening, such as onboarding and succession planning.
