This week: Keep your eye on Google contact lenses; don’t doubt your persuasive powers; Facebook at Work

Taking Auto Correct to a New Level
Google and Novartis have collaborated to create a “smart” contact lens that auto corrects vision, and it should be available for human testing in 2016.

You’re More Persuasive Than You Think
At least that’s what a new study is hoping to persuade you to believe. Take a look at the report’s results and find out how you can use them to be more effective at work.

This Facebook Version Isn’t a No-No on the Job
You may be seeing Facebook at Work in your office before the end of the year. The new version, which has been in beta testing with more than 100 companies, lets users create a work Facebook account that is separate from their personal account so they can use Facebook’s tools to communicate with their colleagues. These interactions would be visible only within the company.
