Who's Talking

  1. Who’s Talking? Rise of The Professional Network Download: Hand-Out http://www.thejordanrules.com/WhosTalkingHO.pdf
  2. Over the past 2 weeks, I’ve stopped watching the news on TV & stopped reading newspapers
  3. Here’s what I’ve learned...
  4. Opinions are better than objectivity
  5. News isn’t as bad as I thought 75% Good 15% Neutral 10% Bad
  6. People are coordinated
  7. News benefits from many sources 20 Posts Per Day 5 Posts Per Day 5 Posts > 5 Posts Per Week Per Month
  8. I think these are 4 major reasons for the rise of the professional network.
  9. By “Professional Network” I literally mean a network of people that equate to an industry professional.
  10. Alone, no one would consider me a professional journalist. Me Professional
  11. But together with a group of individuals, an observer could get as good, or better information than that of a professional. Professional = My Network
  12. Why?
  13. For the reasons I outlined previously.
  14. Opinions are better than objectivity News isn’t as bad as I thought People are coordinated News benefits from many sources
  15. Opinions are better than objectivity People that feel free to voice their opinions often provide the emotion required to completely understand a story. Large networks usually provide a number of passionate people who feel differently about issues. Listening to them is a great way to understand more about a story than a objective news report. News isn’t as bad as I thought People are coordinated News benefits from many sources

Large networks usually provide a number of passionate people who feel differently about issues. Listening to them is a great way to understand more about a story than a objective news report. News isn’t as bad as I thought Some news agencies sensationalize bad news to evoke a stronger emotional reaction (among other reasons). Peer-News often (at least in my experience) focuses on positive news. (upcoming events, cool thoughts, new gadgets, useful tools, etc) People are coordinated News benefits from many sources

News benefits from many sources They key to the rise of the professional network is that a network can have ‘sleeper participants’ who might rarely participate, but live outside the spectrum of normal news, and have connections that might provide unique insight when they do participate.
  19. So, will I return to TV & Newspapers?
  20. I will, but my opinion of them has changed TV Paper
  21. I will, but my opinion of them has changed TV Paper
  22. Instead of using those sources as a default, I’ll refer to them as needed. I no longer need a default system to get information. TV Paper
  23. I can keep informed on what’s going on through my Professional Network
