ECR Baltic on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking site, it is mainly used for professional networking.
The purpose of the site is to allow registered users to maintain a list of contact details of people they know and trust in business. The people in the list are called Connections. Users can invite anyone (whether a site user or not) to become a connection.
It can then be used to find jobs, people and business opportunities recommended by someone in one's contact network. Users can now follow different companies and can get notification about the new joining and offers available.


Stickybits app

Stickybits allows digital information to be attached to a bar code. First you download the free app on your smart phone, like the iPhone or Google Android phone. Then you scan any bar code (like ones on the consumer products at retail store) and attach any digital information you want to it.
According to the stickybits founder In 1996, Webpages became media. In 2001, search became media with Google. In 2005, people became media with FaceBook. In 2007, status updates became media with Twitter. Last year, places with foursquare app became media. And in 2010, he predicts, objects (products) will become media. Recently brands like Pepsi and Cambells has also signed for stickybits. Full presentation available on slideshare, here!


ECR Baltic on mobile: (best viewed on mobile).

This is QR (Quick Response) Code, developed by Denso Wave (Japan) Corporation for marking Toyota spare parts - now the most recognised 2 Dimentional code for scanning with mobile phones (Other 2D Codes: DataMatrix, EZ Code, Microsoft Tag). QR Code also known as "URL killer" just because you do not need to enter long URL on small mobile device instead you just scan the code. Some brands tag their products for additional mobile content available about the product. The technology could be perceived by users much more if 3 basic QR Code rules have been followed:

1. Keep URL encoded short (use URL shorteners like;

2. Direct to mobile friendly page (light weight), specialy adopted to view on small mobile device screens. Good example: BBC Mobile

3. When printing QR Code give good instructions on how to scan the code and where to get the reader application include also human readable URL for manual access.
