The captain of a luxury cruise liner that capsized off Italy's coast may have steered the ship too close to shore so that its head waiter could salute his family in a pre-planned stunt that was posted on Facebook. Just minutes before the Costa Concordia struck rocks and began taking on water, the head waiter's sister updated her Facebook status to say: &quot; In a short period of time the Concordia ship will pass very close. A big greeting to my brother who finally gets to have a holiday on landing in Savona.&quot; Captain Francesco Schettino, 52, reportedly invited the head waiter, Antonello Tievoli, on to the bridge as he steered the vessel towards the coast of Giglio on Friday night. &quot;Come and see, Antonello, we're right in front of Giglio,&quot; the captain told Tievoli shortly before the crash, according to Italy's Corriere della Sera newspaper. It also quoted witnesses who claimed the waiter had warned Captain Schettino just before the accident, saying: &quot;Careful, we are extremely close to the shore.&quot; Captain Schettino may have performed the sail-past also as a salute to an old colleague, a former admiral from the cruise line, who was not even on Giglio on Friday night.

1. You wont know what people are saying about youThe conversation is taking place anyway.You can choose to participate or you canignore it, but people are talking -- evenwhen youre not listening. 55
2. You wont know whats going on in your marketplaceListening in to conversations on Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere is like having a free focus group going 24/7. If you listen to your market, youll be able to anticipate customer needs, make better products, improve services and hear whats wrong with what you are currently delivering. 56
3. No one knows the real you• Someone may already be squatting on your brand and spewing false corporate messages• If you dont secure your brand accounts on Twitter, Facebook, no one will know if its real or fake. Get out there with your own voice and establish a reputation for authenticity and truth - its a lot harder for someone else to hijack your brand. 57
4. When you need a voice, you wont have any credibility• Typically, organizations only think of a blog or a Twitter account, after a crisis hits.• Whether youre talking online or off, it takes months – even years – to establish trust in a relationship.• You need to start the conversation in order to start making deposits in the bank of trust. Then when you need it, the credibility will be there. 58
5. Youre giving away acompetitive advantage • Whether you are listening or not, chances are your competition is monitoring what your stakeholders are saying about you. • They may get the feedback you don’t and be able to bring a new product to market faster, and meet the needs of the marketplace better than you can. 59
