  18. 24. <ul><li>Since the social web is powered by conversations and personalities, our efforts should be rooted in relationship building through active participation, cultivation, and nurturing. We should work to recognize the stature and influence of those influencers we’re hoping to connect with as well as fuel the sharing of Philadelphia’s news, activities, and events across their social graph. </li></ul><ul><li>We can efficiently identify online influencers using a series of search tools readily at our disposal, however engaging with them in a meaningful way is an art and science unto itself. We can’t simply “pitch” them or ask them to retweet, post, or comment on our activities. In Social Media, we must lead by example. </li></ul><ul><li>The social web is also powered by the practice of “paying it forward.” Part of our success will require the active reciprocation and recognition of those who comment on Facebook and Tweet on Twitter, to show that we ARE listening. </li></ul>Desiree Peterkin Bell A NEW : ENGAGEMENT
