  • YOU SEE, IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE A DIALOGUE,NOT A MONOLOGUE.

  • This couldnt be more obviousthan with email. Your companyhas a chance to turn its emaillist into a two-waycommunication.Except that most mass emailsfrom companies are "do notreply"."We want to talk to you,"they say. "But we dont wantto hear back from you. Unlessyou want to place an order,and if so click here." Josh Bernoff, Why marketers have trouble with full-duplex social technology, June 30, 2009
  • “ The people in charge of talking are in the marketing department. The people in charge of listening are in the research or service or sales department. They hardly ever talk to each other, let alone have full-duplex conversations with customers.”Josh Bernoff, Why marketers have trouble with full-duplex social technology, June 30, 2009photo by Jamie Mellor on flickr.com
  • “ This wont fly in social technology because the minute you talk, people expect you to listen. And if you start to listen, youll be tempted to talk. Its a full-duplex channel that befuddles one-way marketers.”Josh Bernoff, Why marketers have trouble with full-duplex social technology, June 30, 2009

  • “ For companies, resistance to social media is futile. Millions of people are creating content for the social Web. Your competitors are already there. Your customers have been there for a long time. If your business isnt putting itself out there, it ought to be.” BusinessWeek, February 19, 2009photo by Archie McPhee Seattle on flickr.com
