唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)通往白宫的成功之路,源于反对自由贸易协议的激烈言论以及从事离岸外包的美国公司。他的口号“使美国再次伟大”的前提是,前提是其他国家流失的数百万个工作岗位应该并可能返回美国。

会长’宏伟的目标包括在10年内创造2500万个新工作岗位。该计划的核心是调整贸易政策-完全废除贸易政策,或谈判对美国工人更有利的新政策。因此,似乎也有旨在阻止公司退出劳动力便宜的国外外包业务的政策。

During the campaign, President Trump called out some of America’s best-known companies for their reliance on foreign labor. He has kept up the rhetoric since being elected. In December, when he touted his success in persuading air conditioner maker Carrier Corp. to keep 800 jobs in Indiana, Trump signaled a policy of retribution to prevent further outsourcing: “Companies are not going to leave the United States any more without consequences,” he said.

Every December and January you can count on the trade press and the mainstream media to run lists of predictions for the upcoming year and retrospectives on the year past ranking the “best” and “worst” of everything from podcasts to memes. Social media users have even begun publishing lists of their own most popular posts. (Instagram users, for example, have been creating their own “best nine 2016 Instagram pics” posts using a web generator.)

At Socially Aware we’ve made an annual tradition of curating a “List of Lists”—an inventory of the roundups we think will be of most interest to our readership.

We’ll update this page throughout the month as additional pertinent content is published.

Happy 2017!

The beginning of a new year is a time for resolutions and predictions. We won’t bother Socially Aware 读者了解我们2017年的决议,但我们认为我们会与我们的编辑和撰稿人分享对新年的一些预测。正如我们下面的预测所表明的那样,2017年对于社交媒体和其他新兴技术而言将是丰收的一年。开始了:

From John Delaney, Co-Founder and Co-Editor, Socially Aware, and Partner at Morrison& Foerster:

当我们进入2017年时,社交媒体和内容营销行业面临的最大问号之一是唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)将对法律格局产生何种影响。他曾被誉为美国第一位社交媒体总裁,毫无疑问,他对Twitter和Facebook等社交媒体平台的使用在他沮丧的大选胜利中发挥了关键作用。同时,他与硅谷经常有敌对关系,可以想象Google和Facebook等科技巨头在特朗普政府内部的声音要远不及奥巴马政府。尽管特朗普曾承诺将重点放在减少商业法规上,这可能会使美国科技公司受益,但他对全球化和自由贸易的明显怀疑可能会对该国的社交媒体行业构成挑战,而社交媒体行业可能是美国所有行业中最具全球性的行业。

我对来年的其他预测是,从炒作阶段到对企业和消费者产生实际影响,我们将看到大量颠覆性的新技术出现,至少在前者看来,对后者而言,可能性更大。原来。例如,区块链技术在2016年引起了巨大轰动,但希望公司真正开始在B2B环境中拥抱和实施这项技术,以永无止境地降低交易费用。通过消除对可信中间商的需求,传统支付和记录平台向基于区块链的平台的过渡有望为公司节省大量成本。随着诸如人工智能,大数据分析,云计算,区块链,物联网等这些新技术中的每一项新技术的组合和突变,我们还将看到破坏的步伐正在加速。 and unexpected ways.
