Texting Can Save Lives

We live in a busy time. The information is non-stop. We are bombarded with content and data and images and messages and marketing pitches and stuff. Some may suspect that only younger demos participate in mobile communication and social networking and that's not true. There can be three and four generations in a company. Leadership is challenging and the way we communicate is changing constantly.

Let’s look at our own behavior...

The topic of texting is a hot one because it's costing lives as we check our mobile device while we’re mobile. It’s right there, we’re at a stoplight, and it takes a second to check for new messages. That’s bad, right? But what if we look at the technology from a different perspective? How can texting actually help us?

Nancy Lublin is CEO of DoSomething. She shows how teens want to help and also need help but often use their mobile devices to reach out. As you watch her talk, imagine how we could harness this for people of all ages.
