One of my resolutions for 2016 is to enhance my delivery of information. Whether it is person-to-person at an open house, or through social media on the internet, I want to better translate the information in my head. One of the ways I will be practicing is by Microblogging everyday on Facebook. “But Nick, what in nerdy-Napolean-Dynamite are you talking about?”
According to a study (PDF) from the University of Hamburg and the University of Hannover, more than fifty percent of internet users stay on a webpage for less than 10 seconds. Even more so, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the average attention span of a human being has dropped from 12 seconds in 2000 to 8 seconds in 2013. Which means, I’ve already lost you and you’ve gone back to Facebook to watch cat videos.
Anyway, the point is that I need to translate the information in my head into something that can be quickly and efficiently consumed. I will be using my Facebook page as the forum to achieve this, and the goal is to post at least once a day! I will still be hosting more in-depth information here on the blog, but hopefully you will find it useful and (at least somewhat) captivating!

I made it to the end of the blog so I
guess my attention span is a little
longer than the average. I wonder
if it’s different by age group?
