Last night’s #TChat and Tuesday night’s #TChat radio provided opportunities for us to look back at the “World of Work” in 2012 and make some predictions for what will be in 2013. Needless to say, SOCIAL was front and center.
One of the questions last night was particularly interesting to me, “How did technology and social media affect world of work trends of 2012?” I was so interested in what people thought that I went back this morning and curated some of the responses that were meaningful to me.
