    Twitter has had its share of bumps, though the site has gotten much better in the last year, and even Facebook subsidiary FriendFeed went down this weekend. It can be difficult to plan for an unanticipated spike in Web traffic.

This phenomenon, of course, is not a Gruber exclusive. But from what I can tell, if you're hosted on Blogger, this isn't an issue at all.

    [Twitter] Book Excerpt: The Death of Facebook
    Business leaders and strategists cannot afford to become too entrenched on a mega social network like Facebook or Twitter. The following is an excerpt from Welcome to the Fifth Estate , Chapter 7: Sustaining Your Community Over Time. Who in their right mind would predict the death of Facebook, given its ever-increasing dominance? But everyone always asks, “What’s next?”.

    [Twitter] The Fallacy of Social Media ROI with No Investment (or “I”)
    Much like the tools discussed above, networks like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are businesses. Tell us in the comments below or on Twitter ! The idea of generating social media ROI without investing in social media is a novel concept; that’s mostly because it is completely irrational.

    Scott is also on Twitter and Facebook. This comment from yesterday from Brian Driggs hit’s the spot on why most blogs miss out on the greatest value they have – their readers – by failing to showcase others rather than themselves: It’s hard for me to posit why showcasing is so rare, as it’s been at the center of my online activities for 15 months, now. I’d tend to agree with you that it’s an ego thing for many. Paging Ego to the white courtesy phone! The things we have in common make it easier for us to accept (even understand) our differences.
