    [Social Media] Will Pinterest Go Public?
    It’s no secret that Pinterest has been steadily gaining steam in the social sphere for the past year or so. Now the once-budding social “scrapbooking” site looks to be taking the next major step toward Internet superstardom. Although we’re naturally inclined to judge as spectators to this vast, social landscape, it may not be fair to compare Pinterest’s IPO to that of Facebook or Twitter quite yet. The fact that Pinterest has worked so hard to find its own identity within the social network may be what sets the site itself and its IPO apart from the crowd.

    [Social Media] Wasted Social Productivity
    While all things social are being touted as innovative ways to “produce things” the reality is that all things social are currently non-productive. You might say that social is much more productive than traditional advertising and marketing methods. Does the increase in hiring people with knowledge about all things social represent more production? So we must begin to ask how can we use all things social to improve productivity gains? We wonder why much of the on-line dialog about social media is about ROI.

They are not social causes or non-profits. It's defeatist to think that the myriad of digital channels are simply that: a paid media space.
