    Social Norms? Twitter Users Follow the 79/7 Rule in the U.K.

    The Pareto principle, more commonly known as the 80/20 rule, is the idea that roughly 80 percent of activity will be accounted for by 20 percent of the participants. Vilfredo Pareto’s initial observation at the start of the 20th century, that 80 percent of Italy’s land was owned by 20 percent of the population, has become a common rule of thumb in business, but does it hold up when tracking activity for the U.K.’s most popular social networks?

    Must Read Social Media Books

    Reading books has just got social. Social media that is. Having just done a search on social media books at Waterstones I found that they were 529 books with social media in the title. Examples include The social media bible and Social media goes corporate. If we take a moment and think about what the landscape was like a few years ago one could argue that most of the books would not have anything to do with social media.

    Getting Ready for Mongol Rally

    I've set myself a challenge.. which means I need to learn a few things!

    The challenge, with my friend Mike, is to join the 'Mongol Rally' in July 2010, driving 10,000 miles from the UK to Ulaanbaatar, capital of Mongolia. The point of the exercise is to have fun and raise money for various charities.

    But to make it work, I'll need to learn a few things:

    * Most critically, some basic car maintenance! We intend to drive a second hand verhicle of some sort, which we can be almost certain, is likely to breakdown various times.

    Top ten PR tips for small businesses

    Nice post from David Meerman Scott about online PR here:
    http://www.webinknow.com/2008/05/top-ten-pr-tips.html

    I don't know David, but I liked his statement: "I realized that sometimes there is value to top-of-mind ideas. Nuggets of value may be lost when you obsess over getting every detail perfect." Couldn't agree more.

    Here's his list:

    1. The old ways to get noticed were to buy expensive advertising and beg the media to write about you and your products. The best way to get noticed today is to publish great content online.

    The Facebook Generation vs. the Fortune 500

    Great article (via @guykawasaki) on how the expectations of the next generation are reshaping the businesses they work for. 12 points about how the new workplace will need to reflect the principles of the social web.

    Here are my favourites:
    * All ideas compete on an equal footing.
    * Leaders serve rather than preside.
    * Resources get attracted, not allocated.

    The Folksy ruler

    One of the things I really like about Folksy.com (the UK-based crafts marketplace) is the cool stuff they make to promote the site. Looking through their Flickr stream, there are plenty of other examples of them getting involved with the community of people who make and sell stuff through the site.

    There's lots of inspiration there for us at School of Everything - and for any other startup that's trying to find playful ways to spread the word about a useful service.
