” consider these tips for dealing with trolls on your blog or social-networking sites: Don’t Feed the Trolls. If you’re feeling like “OMG WTF” when scrolling your comment thread, you may be dealing with a troll.

You can use tactics that have worked for generations or those you see on community blogs. It's an amazing feeling to see the people you've connected building relationships, helping each other, and doing meaningful things. It has real benefits too.

Their interest in the topic increases, they get greater pleasure from enjoying the interest with others. This mindset, if true however, isn't helpful.

If I see one more blog about Pinterest marketing statics, I’ll probably go postal! It seems like the Buzz around Pinterest is never ending, people can’t stop talking about how awesome this visually based social media platform is and how quickly it’s grown! Despite all the yapping it seems very few people are cranking out tangible ideas that will allow users and fans to reap the benefits of a really engaging Pinterest campaign. I’ve decided I am going to try and bring some inspiration that goes beyond pins and I’m going to start with fashion brands.

They publish Blog posts, they create videos on YouTube , they tweet and push people to "like" them on Facebook in hopes that something "viral" happens. Transmedia is all the rage these days.

In best case scenarios, include the consumer in the creation and/or collaboration of these activities. Does it work? better question may be: "how can it not work?" Twitter fascinates me. Stories die.
