  • This is a map of my LinkedIn connections, and their connections to one another. Pretty cool when you can actually visualize all of those connections.According to Don Tapscott, author of “Growing Up Digital,” if you have 750 social media connections, you are six degrees away from every person on earth.For me, you have to combined Facebook and LinkedIn, but that gets me there. I’m officially connected with everyone on earth.
  • And for his part, Kevin Bacon is being a good sport about the whole Six Degrees thing. He’s even helped launch SixDegrees.org, a Web site through which people can support their favorite charities by donating or creating fundraising badges — as well as check out the favorite causes of other people, including celebrities.  Theycan also pay it forward with Good Cards® - gift cards for charity that can be redeemed as a donation to more than 1 million charities

It’s a living, breathing community, and the people using it have made that connection to E&Y. You think E&Y will have an edge in the recruiting department?Customer service: Horchow.Marketing / sales: A million examples. Dell has generated more than $7 million in revenue from Twitter alone. Then, let’s talk about Old Spice. It really had a reputation as kind of an old man’s product. Then this thing hit YouTube:
