The brats of the digital world— Twitter , Facebook , LinkedIn , Pinterest and a brood of other social networks—will spend all day talking at us if we aren’t careful.

In the first example, you can mouse over the cog wheel and add the page you’re looking at to an interest list. You can mark a list to be private for your eyes only; or you can mark it public for anyone to subscribe. Do you use lists, too?

[Marketing] Quote of the week: online communities and complexity
From Rachel Happe in this post : I believe that online communities address the growing flash points where the complexity of markets clash against the complexity of organizations. They provide a comforting human dynamic to individuals whose world feels like a big, confusing and illogical machine, chewing them up and spitting them out. Online communities are, in essence, the test labs for what it means to ‘do business’ in this new connected and complex era and with it they are creating new forms of negotiation, organization and balances of power.

An issue for many brands who are developing a social media strategy is how they translate what they do in one country into other markets in which they operate. The social media landscape is different in each country – Facebook is not always the right tool, you need to understand what is right in different markets. The position of a brand is different in each market – your brand may be different in different countries and your aims in each might change. And in doing this we have looked at organisations who have done this well. And those who have done it badly.
