  • Government is beginning to experiment with a new trend: people using online social technologies (blogs, social networking sites, YouTube, podcasts) to discuss products and companies, write their own news, and find their own deals. This groundswell is global and a major part of President Obama's transparency initiatives, it is unstoppable, it affects every industry and it is utterly foreign to some government agencies running things now.
  • When you think of social technologies, you often think about these buzzwords. But that’s not what is important. What is important is relationships and the connections that are made with them.
  • The key is to focus on the relationships and connections that are enabled, not the technologies. Think about the kind of relationship that you want. Do you want it to be short term and transaction, or long-term and intimate?To help you think about this, I have a simple idea.

  • Comcast is a cable provider in the US, and they have a reputation for poor service. They use Twitter to talk with people who are having problems. I used this site and Frank took great care of me. He is changing the face of Comcast, one tweet at a time.
  • Starbucks has a site where people can make suggestions on how they should improve. The key difference is that the suggestions are public, and people can vote for their favorite suggestions. Here’s an example of automatic ordering. Note that there is a status update here “Under Review”.
