The ROI of Social Media is a presentation given by Dorian Benkoil of TeemingMedia.com at Social Media Weekend at Columbia University's graduate school of journalism.

It delves into how to figure out whether what you're spending, the effort you're putting into social media, is justified, and how to make it work better to achieve your goals -- all of which is something Teeming Media and Dorian do regularly for publishers.
