A recent study has peaked my SuperMum interest here – definitely the very definition of modern day parenting in the era of social networking. The study reports that parents who sit and play videogames with their children are better placed to develop lasting bonds with their kids.

While at Forrester Research he developed a Social technographics ladder that shows the various types of behaviour across social networks and the types of activities we perform.
