Yet, there are few businesses really genuinely thinking about the way to do this. In order to make social media consistently valuable to clients it needs to deliver a genuine ROI and without social commerce it is difficult how to prove this. Wiggle.co.uk

    One aspect that CNN might want to rethink is the inclusion of “Total Comments” for each news item. Since many stories do not appear to allow comments this results in quite a few “popular” stories with zero comments, which sends a mixed message to users: NewsPulse is still in beta so there’s likely to be some changes based on user activity and input. How “popularity” is determined is not specifically defined, but it is likely a simple metric like page views. It has the potential to increase the number of stories read per visit, resulting in more page views and time on site.

    [Comments] Crisis Communication: If a crisis hits, do you have a plan?
    Probably the first reaction you have is to say: “No comment.” In reality, your “no comment” starts a snowball reaction of assumptions that you are trying to hide something or go on the defensive. 'Today we have a guest blog post from Nancy Valent of NMV Strategies on crisis communication. Your phone rings. It’s a CNN reporter wanting to know why your facility had an explosion, which injured five of your employees. What is your response? ” It seems harmless and a good safety net to buy you some time.

    [Comments] T-Mobile G2: My New Mobile Obsession
    Recent comments Recent comments Related articles Deciphering @CharlieSheen and his #fastball Stop Producing Noise. It’s funny what 12 months does to a person. Nearly one year ago, I mused about replacing my BlackBerry Curve 8330 with a simpler phone with basic functionality. My rationale was I didn’t want to be electronically tethered to the internet around the clock. Fast forward six months and I insisted I would downgrade , going so far as wondering whether my pre-BlackBerry device could be reincarnated. chuckle as I look back. didn’t downgrade. So far so good.

    [Comments] Five for Friday 11.15.10
    am not sure what to think of it as I am just starting to test out the beta and will reserve comment for a week or so. don’t think that this will hold water overall as the impact that negative comments from employees can really impact the way companies recruit and also can lead to suits against companies since they may or may not have seen negative posts from employees or a supervisor decides to pop off on their lazy or worthless employees. This was a busy, but short week for me with some family activities in Jersey. How was your week? If so, check out this piece from Spike Jones.

    [Comments] Throwback Thursday: Search Engine Watch Circa 1999
    In today’s post, Danny Goodwin noted in his comments on the Webcology radio program that Search Engine Watch was considered to be dead when Danny Sullivan left. 'Today is Thursday, and every Thursday I try to feature one search engine or search engine website. Today, because of the official announcement that Danny Goodwin is leaving Search Engine Watch , I thought I would feature Search Engine Watch. At that time, the site wasn’t really considered to be a news website. In fact, it was more about educating people about search and SEO (search engine marketing). link]. link].

    [Comments] Five for Friday
    If enough comments below ask for the story I will schill it out. Don’t you love short weeks? For four days, this week was sure jam packed. Aside from work things, there was a tornado scare in Boston that resulted in a heck of a lot of rain and hail with our condo losing power with a salesman in our place mid pitch. Let me tell you the night was one I will never forget and I am debating whether or not to tell the tale on this blog via prose or video as it is a series of unfortunate events that equaled to a sleepless night. How was your week? Any big plans for the weekend?
