The purpose of this paper is to compare customer’s perceptions of the value of advertising on social network sites (SNSs) to their perceptions of the value of Print media advertising. Data was collected through questionnaire from a sample of 235 and was analyzed using SPSS. The analysis indicated that Ducoffe’s Ad Value model does provide a good fit for assessing advertising value in social media and print media. The respondents assessed ad value on the basis of Entertainment and informativeness(higher for social media). In examining the relative importance of each component of Ducoffe’s model, it is clear that Entertainment and Informativeness play key roles in assessing advertising value for both traditional (Print media) and non-traditional media (SNSs). If practitioners seek to interact via SNSs with young consumers they should focus on providing entertaining content in a format that makes brand engagement seamless while not impeding goals. This investigation provides the impetus for future research about consumers’ perceptions of advertising value across all SNSs, in comparison to their traditional counterparts.

The wide adoption of electronic data interchange (EDI) by the SMEs is important for the success of the technology. A review of past EDI adoption literature indicates that past studies have focused mainly on large businesses. With the advance of technology, SMEs businesses are now able to enjoy the benefits of EDI. SMEs businesses are the backbone of the economy in Nigeria, despite these facts, there are relatively no identified studies on perception of EDI adoption among the Nigerian SMEs. A conceptual model is then proposed to address the above issues. The model may help Nigerians SMEs to achieve higher impacts on their businesses from the adoption of EDI and may also provide strategic roadmap for SMEs in other African countries. Using a technology, organization, and environment framework, this study tested a perception base model against the data collected from 204 SMEs firms in Nigeria. Four factors that were found to be significant in the SMEs EDI adoption were direct benefits, indirect benefits, financial resources, and external pressure to adopt EDI. The results of this study could provide insight into unique factors that drive EDI adoption by SMEs in Nigeria.
Among the four species of bear in India, the Himalayan brown bear (Ursus arctos) is least distributed and occurs in very low densities in the alpine region of the Greater and Trans Himalayan zones in India. It is rare and usually encountered between 2800m to 4800m elevation. Population of brown bear is largely confined to the western and northwestern Himalayan regions in India and distributed mainly in the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttaranchal and Sikkim. Schaller (1969) stated that the Himalayan brown bear is largely confined to rolling uplands and high forests of fur-spruce and alpine pastures.Due to increasing human population, expansion of agricultural land, livestock grazing pressure and collection of medicinal plants, both brown bear and black bear populations are disturbed and threatened. Forests, pastures and wastelands have been brought under cultivation to sustain increased demand of cereals and other food products . The unsustainable land-use patterns in rural areas have further altered the landscapes. As a result of the habitat modification, certain wildlife species have become ecological dislocate.
