    The “Command and Control” PR model is dead

    Everyone’s a channel, and everyone is a critic
    Measurement is becoming easier
    The “Berlin wall” of information is falling
    Big brands are devolving, personal brands are evolving
    Everything is a commodity, except attention and trust

  • 35. But: 10 Objections to Social Media
    I suffer from information overload already.
    So much of what's discussed online is meaningless. These forms of communication are shallow and make us dumber. We have real work to do!
    I don't have the time to contribute and moderate, it looks like it takes a lot of time and energy.
    Our customers don't use this stuff, the learning curve limits its usefulness to geeks.
    Communicators [bloggers, tweeters] are so fickle, better to stay unengaged than risk random brand damage. We don't want hostile comments left about us on any forum we've legitimized.

  • 36. But: 10 Objections to Social Media
    Traditional media and audiences are still bigger, we'll do new stuff when they do.
    Upper management won't support it/dedicate resources for it.
    These startups can't offer meaningful security, they may not even be around in a year - I'll wait until Google or our enterprise software vendor starts offering this kind of functionality.
    There are so many tools that are similar, I can't tell where to invest my time so I don't use any of it at all.
    That stuff's fine for sexy brands, but we sell [insert boring B2B brand] and are known for stability more than chasing the flavor-of-the-month. We're doing just fine with the tools we've got, thanks.
