As pointed out on the BlogWorld & New Media Expo blog , there was no documentation on how to use the new Groups feature; the notifications features were turned on by default - meaning that many people were hit with a wave of email notifications about being added to groups; and that groups seemed to be governed by the many rather than by the individual who created them.

    So while many pundits are over estimating the short term impact of social media most, if not all, under estimate the long term impact. The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. Albert Camus. Digital tools surround us. Every tool enables more and more communications. Communications have become like air… many can’t survive without it. Eventually the human network will learn how to manage the tools and breath with less of a sense of urgency to consume everything coming from everyone.

    By posting quickly and getting the word out (by using social media sites), others will notice and they will link to your blog post. Bloggers and media outlets don’t tend to like to link out to press releases unless that’s the only reference out there: and most likely, if they’re writing about the company announcement, someone else will: so make sure that your own blog has information about the topic.
