Bioteams develops unique Social Media Impact Forecasting Simulator
The Business Social Media Impact Forecasting Simulator is fully web-based and supports the development and deployment of multiple content/media over multiple channels (such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIN, Web and email) to a defined schedule. The tool requires Adobe Flash and also runs well on Android Tablets.
A key aspect of the simulator is that, as well as forecasting all the key social interactions such as views, likes, reposts and follows, it also estimates the costs and the value to the organisation of the campaign and shows how this develops graphically over time. It is possible to profile campaigns over time to allow build-up periods and to tailor channel response rates, for example, to allow for seasonality and other temporary factors such as advertising campaigns.
The free version of the simulator is fully functional but is limited to 6 month campaigns, 4 content types and 4 owner channels. The full version of the tool as well as being unlimited in this respect also provides full reports and charts plus the ability to tailor the tool, run weekly campaigns and import from and export to Microsoft Excel.
The simulator is ideal for organisations who are managing their own social media campaigns and for agencies and consultancies who are planning and managing social media campaigns on behalf of their clients.

I have been thinking a lot about what happens when a leader gets under severe pressure, usually because things are not going according to plan. It seems to me this is the very essence of real leadership and where leaders can really justify their salaries. BUT according to Professor Dietrich Dorner, in his excellent book The Logic Of Failure: Recognizing And Avoiding Error In Complex Situations, there are two very tempting but ultimately disastrous tangents a leader can pursue in a crisis instead of addressing the real issues.
