In the next decade, theyll also help you answer questions and solve complex problems,” Zoref writes, quoting Facebooks founder Mark Zuckerberg, in his preface.”Before my visit to China, I thought US technology is superior with regards to social networks. Now, I think that Chinese technology in some respects is far more advanced,” Zoref tells China Daily.”People here are so open to the idea of crowdsourcing, because they use the technology so much in their life, probably more than any other nation. Thats why I am so happy to publish the book here.”Zoref worked at Microsoft as a marketer from 1996 to 2010.Hes pursuing his PhD at Israels Bar-Ilan University, where hes researching ways in which people can use social networks for professional development.His book cites examples of how he got ideas for public speeches and career development from people on social networks with whom he wasnt particularly close, such as acquaintances and friends of friends. He also examines how other people have used social networks to deal with such problems as managing finances, raising children and finding romantic partners.”There is a saying (that) two heads are smarter than one. I say: What about 1,000 heads?” Zoref says.He also writes about different strategies for different social-network platforms, how to manage digital relationships and ask the right questions.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page0Related ArticlesYoung US authors Beautiful Country touching tale of ChinaSome of the other winnersReads of the weekDissecting the written wordNearly 30 science fiction authors attend book signing event in BeijingTagsbook social network crowdsourcingPhotoTrilobite fossil found in ChongqingQueen of tango set to tour ChinaBird-and-flower paintings commemorate former professorPingyao International Photography Festival kicks offDunhuang ready for the upcoming Silk Road International Culture ExpoThe Temple Dancer takes the stageArtFilmCelebrityFashionFoodTravelSee emotions through a new perspectiveJuans lensFrench and Chinese to stage art in containersBird-and-flower paintings commemorate former professorChinese tea bowl sets record price at NY auctionMusic that reverberates through the agesChinese and Singapore artists reveal Pulse of a CityJiang Pengyis concept photographs on display in ShanghaiTracing the story of how Beijing became the capitalJapanese expert set to brighten up Shanghais CBDYinchuan Biennale set to promote art in NW ChinaPassion to spread good tasteMcDull new film set to premiere on Mid-Autumn FestivalChina Film Forum at Venice draws film professionalsNew TV series inspired by tales of legendary troopSilk Road film festival features cultural diversityAnimated Storks set to hit the screenIQiyi cooperates with TV manufacturer Skyworth68th Primetime Emmy AwardsChinas holiday box office sales total $76mSino-US co-production A Childrens Song attracts worlds attentionUsing the fan economy to build franchisesFirst Chinese film festival in Italy kicks off in MilanStar Trek Beyond continues to lead Chinese box officeActress Liu Yifei spotted in MontrealLiu Yifei and Yang Yang pose for fashion magazineAngelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad PittWax statue of Liu Taos role in Nirvana in Fire shown in BeijingItalian actress Bellucci says beauty is gift but also provokes violenceChinas Liu Wen eighth highest-paid model in the worldActor Yang Yang poses for Figaro magazineFaye Wong returns to spotlight with Shanghai concertActress Liu Yan releases new shotsHighlights of 41st Toronto International Film FestivalNatalie Portman at screening of Jackie in VeniceNot quite yet Hollywood dazzlingAdding class to quality of Erdos cashmereIt Brazilian girlsDistinctly Chinese elements stealing spotlightHow street style has upset fashions traditional hierarchyFashion show held at Yellow River stone forest national geological parkLFW: Star-studded Burberry Spring/Summer 2017Traditional Chinese Miao embroidery showcased in New YorkLFW: Charlotte Olympia showShoe without a footprint invented with carbon emissions recyclingChinas lingerie brand makes its debut at London Fashion WeekLondon Fashion Week Spring/Summer collections 2017 opensHighlights of Chongqing Fashion WeekDo you dare try these weird mooncakesA bite of HangzhouWalker feted as mainlands first Master of WineGut checkA British and French food fight in BeijingThe world on a plateChina Pastry Cup competition rules announcedStudy: Organic wine tastes betterThe truth about coconuts: Superfood or fatty fad?Coffee gene makes that extra cup undrinkable for someTerroir by the glassChain eateries are bringing local Hangzhou specialties everywhereColorful Yunnan through the lens of Italian photographerTerraces in Houyuan village, SE ChinaGlimpses of Lhasas holiday seasonTop 10 destinations for female travelersTop 10 seldom-seen views around the worldQuanzhou charmsYunnan, a travel heavenCity of SpringsMorning sun showers snow-covered Great WallMixing old with new in central Vietnam2013 Top 10 Tourism Destinations Editors PicksPhotos of Old Summer Palace a hit online10 places to spend Mid-Autumn Festival in BeijingHot wordsCroisements FestivalPalace MuseumEasy TalkGaokaoTop 10sCulture InsiderDragon Boat FestivalTeaChinese at CannesPainting & CalligraphyVideoHighlights from Encore DunhuangLocal Beijing resident talks about Mid-Autumn Festival traditionsRoger Ballens photographic artColumnsRaymond Zhou:X-Ray
