  26. 26. Look how many friends these influencers have! If we can just get them to love and champion our brand, think about how popular we’d be!
  27. 27. The definition of “friendship” is getting more complicated (and maybe diluted), especially when brands are involved. Managing our social lives is getting more complex. Consumers have never been more generous in the divulging of personal information. Managing relationships with consumers has never been more difficult for brands.
  28. 28. Consumers have an implied contract with social media properties. Advertisers have an implied contract with consumers. Can the two co-exist, or will we have to re-draft these contracts completely?
