Social media are communications and given its reach and influence the things said that are significant are the things that influence humanity. Umair Haque writes: Social is significance. The real promise of social tools is societal, not just relational; is significance, not just attention.

Social media and online communities like this one are absolutely wonderful. By Lubna Sadik. Last week Corina Manea wrote about the benefits of working from home and I couldn’t agree more.

Contracting for the past few years has now awarded me the luxury of working from home.

For the past two years I’ve been chiding marketers who ask “What’s the ROI of social media? as one of their top questions. Asking “what’s the ROI of social media first will not lead one along the path to enlightenment but only further into obscurity and irrelevance. The huge opportunity in the marketplace, and I believe that it is HUGE, has NOTHING to do with social media or even technology.
