This fall, at Stanford CSP, Sudha will be teaching the first-ever course on the business of self-driving cars to help entrepreneurs and innovators to “find the gaps” so they can drive (pun intended) the next generation of innovative businesses. On this week’s show, Sudha will talk about the landscape of autonomous vehicles, regulations, and the key technologies which make these cars, trucks, and buses possible. As always, visionaries who can see the coming changes will be the winners.
Just when you thought Google was the biggest threat to your business, you find out Facebook is an even bigger threat. Starting immediately, if your website is not mobile responsive, then Facebook will no longer show your posts in news media feeds. Why not? Because they want their users to have a seamless experience and they don’t want to be blamed if your site is inadequate – they will put you in the sandbox!
We are not quick to recommend spending money on social media unless we are confident it will produce results for you. Well, maybe, just maybe, Twitter has come up with an innovative possible game changer with their most recent announcement.

We’ll let you know our thoughts on today’s show.
We don’t like to think about it, but if something happens to us, who will take over to manage or close our social media accounts? Facebook just announced a new option for you to name your Legacy Contact in the event of an emergency. That’s only one of the topics we will cover on today’s Social Solutions Show.
We have seen the changes over the last couple of years on the granddaddy of social media sites. Linkedin, in its effort to stay relevant, has introduced features that show a striking resemblance to other platforms. But they haven’t always warmed the cockles of hearts by their user base. Well the newest announcement may be the final straw in inviting spammers to glob on to your updates to further their agenda. We’ll fill you in on why we don’t believe adding images to your comments on someone else’s post is a good thing.
At the risk of using a trite cliché, this statement speaks the truth. And Facebook is making it even easier by expanding their test of video cover images. This is really good news for creative marketers. In the ever increasing world of competing for eyeballs, there is no question that video front and center can capture and hold users attention.
