I was a dedicated Flickr Pro. I paid annual dues since 2007, most recently at $24.95 a year, for the privilege of uploading an unlimited quantity of photos and viewing zero ads on the Yahoo-owned photo sharing site. I uploaded 2,030 photos.

My sister remembers when the “fancy” mall opened in our hometown. She and my mom would dress up to go. By the time I was ready to hang out at the mall, I trudged from one store to the next in jeans or even (oh goodness) sweat pants. After the novelty wore off, customers came as they were – on their own terms.

“The Thank You Effect” is an example of a small action that prompts meaningful next steps to measurably improve service in any company. In my experience, there are a number of these small actions that, when evangelized through a support team or through the larger company, can really make a difference on the customer experience.
In the early days of web content filtering it was enough to configure a firewall to block certain sites from being accessed. An SME would maintain a blacklist of forbidden sites and update that list from time to time. This method did not offer deep packet inspection and only filtered Internet access based on a domain name.
A modern and effective web content filtering solution scans more than the domain name. By breaking down and analyzing web traffic, today’s filters are capable of accurately pinpointing portions of a web page that should not be allowed into the internal network. This allows websites to be accessed while blocking the portions of their content that is deemed unsafe by the filtering solution.
Why filter? Because granting your employees unfettered Internet access can open your company up to a host of problems, including:
