The deeper the trust, the deeper the relationship. And the deeper the relationship, the more likely it is to be long lasting. Which from your business’ point of view translates to more profitable.

    Gaurav Mishra (@ gauravonomics ) writes about how the social web is changing business and society at www.gauravonomics.com/blog. In this week’s Tweeterati column in Mail Today , I wonder why public figures can’t stay out of trouble on Twitter: To the typical Twitter user, Twitter might feel like an intimate cafe, where they can talk in private, even though they are in a public space, but the analogy doesn’t not true for public figures like Tharoor and Weiner. Why Can’t Public Figures Stay Out of Trouble on Twitter? Anthony Weiner’s photo faux pas on Twitter instead.

There’s not a whole lot to say and this post will be short. know that you’re working out the problems and that the tremendous service load put onto your free service is on par with the largest sites in the world. know that you handle most situations with class and are apologetic when things go wrong. At some point soon, the patience will run out. When does this end? WordPress doesn’t have these problems.

    [Blog] Review of Social Media Analytics
    Happy to announce a glowing review of  Social Media Analytics   appeared at the  SEMANGEL blog (Gary Angel, CTO of Semphonic.com, who also contributed to Chapters 7 and 8 of my book).

The title of this post pretty much sums it up.  So often we get caught up in frameworks and checklists and strategies and everyone is running around looking busy.  Meanwhile, back at the ranch where the real work happens, consumers are still being marketed online.  How could this be? It is helpful sometimes to take a step back and take a look at what you are doing from the outside looking in.  Jake McKee 90-9-1.com.
