And therein lies the difference between the social web and its previous iterations. Conversation is now key. Content may still be king, however conversation can amplify its effect whether having positive or negative connotations for a business. Dell's IdeaStorm is a textbook example of how a brand can take negative content and energy surrounding their business and products and channel it into a positive dialog with its consumers now creating positive UGC. 9/23/10 1 ©7Summits
