Recently, Facebook began publishing statistics about its user base. I want to highlight some of their statistics about mobile and talk a bit about what these facts point to about the future of online research communities.

The first is this: There are more than 100 million users currently accessing Facebook through their smartphones on a monthly basis.

Recently, a blog post entitled, “Two Common Mistakes of Millennials at Work,” (by Andrew McAfee, principal research scientist at the Center for Digital Business in the MIT Sloan School of Management) caught my eye.

In the post, McAfee points to two mistakes Gen Y (aka Millennials) employees make: Oversharing (freely sharing minute details of their lives in social media, because, after all, if they think it, it MUST be important) and Egalitarianism (“Acting as if all employees are equals, and equally interested in airing the truth” and being indifferent–or hostile–to hierarchy and assuming their opinions are, from Day One, as valid as senior members of an organization).

I first want to address arguably two of the most important words in our language:  “Yes” and “No”.

Take for instance Jim Carrey’s character, Carl Allen, in the 2008 film Yes Man. When a self-help guru helps Carl unleash the power of “Yes,” his life begins to transform in amazing ways. But toward the end, Carl learns that his willingness to embrace every opportunity doesn’t always add up to what he wants.
