Without an internal strategy in place, this is where the meme dies: left to generate it’s own buzz and movement. </li></ul><ul><li>every company should/needs to encourage it’s employees to become satellite proselytizers of the brand and the meme. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>individuals to create and manage a trustworthy reputation within their space </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>relies heavily on the 2nd wave. </li></ul></ul>

    25. 25. Twitter: @topfloortech | Hashtag: #TFTBootCamp It’s a Ballroom Blitz (Krieg) The 3rd Wave Controlling the meme at the 3rd wave is close to impossible, which is why it is imperative in the first two waves that message be engineered but not feel contrived. It’s walking a fine line of control and art. The more strategy you can apply to social media efforts to ensure visibility, branding, and interaction to elicit the desired reaction in a community/communities, the better.
