Post Thumbnail of Is this Social Media "success story" silly? Or is that just my opinion?

I participated in a Social Business conference here in the North Bay area of San Francisco, which was on the whole a great experience; however, one particular roundtable discussion left me “unimpressed” — if not downright exasperated.

Post Thumbnail of What's Really Wrong With the "LIKE" Buttons

When we are really “all about” LIKE — and forget what  might be most beneficial — then we’ve got a problem. The Topic Du Jour in the blogosphere is Influence vs. Popularity.

Mike Maynard is my newest BFF. We met “playing” LinkedIn: I ask questions, and Mike answers.
