“ Concentrate on relationships, not the technologies.” “ Social networking sites and virtual worlds are by definition about the facilitation of relationships with technologies.” Li, Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff.

http://www.arabamericanmuseum.org Listening – What Are People Saying?
http://www.arabamericanmuseum.org Join The Conversation Advertising is not talking, it's shouting. Advertising thrives on repetition. The two main measures are reach (the gross number of individuals screamed at) and frequency (the number of times each person hears the shout). Social technologies have revved up the word-of-mouth dynamic, increasing the influence of regular people while diluting the value of traditional marketing. Li, Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff. Groundswell: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies . Harvard Business School Press, 2008.
