Today I got the short response from the head-hunter: "While my skills are unquestionable meeting all requirements and the experience is impressive, the customer wishes more 'actions' on Facebook and more activity in social networks in general". Doh?!
This somewhat leaves me standing there open-mouthed. It's not like I'm not having a FB account (and one for my blog), LinkedIn and Twitter and then some. Yes, I'm quite skeptical about giving away too much private or corporate-internal information and do state so e.g. on my blog.... but this should be a plus, at least at VP level.
Am I totally off the track, thinking that skills & experience should be more important than fooling around on FB (no matter if applying for VP or internship)?"

I can't wait for the transfer booths to get installed, and we can permanently ban cars.
I tried to get people to use "tripple-U" but, unsurprisingly, it didn't catch. It was also back in the day when people (well, we midwestern people) said the "www" of a URL, so www.wustl.edu could have been nona-U if one ignored the dot.
"... two opposing particle beams of either protons at up to 4 teraelectronvolts (4 TeV or 0.64 microjoules), or lead nuclei at an energy of 574 TeV (92.0 J) per nucleus (2.76 TeV per nucleon), with energies to be roughly doubled to around 7 TeV (14 TeV collision energy) —more than seven times any predecessor collider—by around 2015."

Although, now that I think about it, I'm not sure that couldn't be spoofed if you knew a little bit about the other person.
Bundles? I already successfully, with minimal effort, manage personal, business and sales-related emails. I don't need an algorithm to do that less well than I already do.
Highlights? Ok, maybe. I have a decent working memory, but maybe finding and scrolling down to the email from Delta and then tapping it open is too much for some people. Not me.
If the Assists bot is as "good" as google maps's, no fucking way do I want it trying to find me a phone number or tell me business hours. I already have emails to myself (don't worry, I save them as drafts; they aren't sent) and google calendars (and OMG I hear some people actually use post-it notes!). What functional difference does the snooze/reminders service offer? I'm very good at ignoring an email until such time as it needs my attention.
In other words, this is a solution (maybe) to a problem that doesn't exist for many of us. There may be some people who have a thousand emails a day and they can't manage it. I'm not convinced this is will solve their problems, but for the rest of us, it's just a non-event. Moreover, it's not because I'm opposed to innovation, but many earlier efforts that were hailed as game changers or amazing advances in AI and big data (or bloody political Change) turned out to be little more than marketing hype and hyperbole.
The current solution works, and until something can demonstrably improve upon that solution, it will be met with the doubt and incredulity it deserves.
