    [Social Media] Groundswell Paperback: A Look Back Three Years Later
    To our astonishment, it has sold more than 100,000 books and now a new, updated paperback version is available (links below), with two new chapters on how to use Twitter and social maturity. But the theme of the book — that you have to focus first on the relationships created by social technologies (and not the technologies themselves) – still resonates today. That was five years ago, and as a whole, organizations still lack the maturity to be able to truly engage in an honest, authentic dialog – despite their adoption of social technologies. Talk about guts!

I’m reading The War of Art (affiliate link). It’s a book about working around creative blocks, or dealing with resistance. But it doesn’t just apply to artists or authors. It’s a book that also applies to owning a business. At one time or another we all feel resistance. What is resistance?

The thing is, by doing so in a world where people are getting more and more used to having an interaction back and forth with their digital media channels, the more anti-social a brand can look. When people can speak back, the social engagement is implicit. Everything online and in the mobile space is social. media.
