  • “ Find” means locating a two things: The conversations you see happening about your client. The people who are most likely to become company evangelists whether they are talking about the client or not. It’s important to search the whole social media space to get a sense of what, if anything, is being said. Use Technorai or IceRocket or PubSub to search blogs. You can use any of the previously mentioned podcast directories I mentioned to find Podcasts. Search all the photo and video sharing sites – look for tags with your client’s name. Look at all the social networking sites out there – the “mass appeal” ones as well as the niche ones. Search Delicious, which is a social-bookmarking site. You can also search for meme’s at sites like Tailrank. Meme’s are major subjects that are traveling in the blogosphere. Gather all this information together so you can give the client a picture of what’s happening with their brand in the social media space.
