Another year is coming to an end, and I hope that yours was filled with more highs than lows. With the evolution of social media, most of us have started documenting these highs and lows through links, photos, videos and comments. A pretty cool record of our achievements is being made online and shared with friends. We’re also engaging with each other much more – in the past, you may have only contacted old friends at Christmas, but now we keep up to date daily via nuggets of tweets, likes and comments.
The possibilities that this media offer are still only being discovered. Previously hidden talent has now found a platform to be acknowledged. New contacts are made and opportunities are created. A few minutes spent on social media sites every day, used effectively, has real-life tangible benefits. We live in a “Global village” where the right kind of engagement with the community is preparation for success, regardless of where you live.
With this in mind, we had an idea, that a simple photo competition would be a fun way to top off 2011 and mark the start of 2012. In this simple way, you have the chance to be creative, share your proud moments and reap the tangible benefits by winning a prize. Who knows what else might result?
It offers us the chance to see how people from all over the world, who share a common interest in Oracle, spend this time of year, or what this season means to you. A collage of culture, creativity and tradition can be formed on the Campus at Oracle Facebook page. And that diversity of culture and ideas from so many great people from all over the world has been a defining part everyday life working at Oracle personally.
All the very best over the Holidays, and in 2012!
