    Now, it’s not easy to keep a Twitter chat going week after week, or even every other week after every other week. Seeing as how last Tuesday was my second day at my new job, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to moderate #measurePR. So I was really grateful when the erstwhile Jen Zingsheim agreed to do so. Schedules change, work happens, life happens, people come and go, chats take a temporary hiatus… it’s tough. The one thing I wanted to do, when I started #measurePR, was make sure it wasn’t here today and gone tomorrow. There you go.
    [Twitter] What really gets me about social media is this….
    It’s not how many connections on Twitter that matters but how many brains you have connected with Click To Tweet. What really gets me about social technology is this… People see it as the ANSWER FOR their business rather than a QUESTION FOR their business. Technology is not hard, even for non-geeks like me! No, No, the hard part is… deciding what your business is about, how it is different to everyone else and how share these with the world. Those questions are a subset and can only be answered by knowing the human technology behind your brand. Click To Tweet.

    She points out that social sharing happens billions of times a day, crossing various social media networks like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and the rest. What happens when someone sees content that they want to share? They volunteer to be on the staff, working for the original business or person who is the source of that content. Instead of paying for marketing, an army of volunteers spreads the word by hitting the “share” button and that content is seen repeatedly for who knows how long. What Makes Content Sharable? Think about what you see shared.

    [Twitter] Free vs. Paid: Will Your Members Still Love You?
    Use social sharing buttons – Twitter buttons alone increases sharing sevenfold. When we’re talking about using social media as part of a content strategy, we are talking about having free content out there. One of the first questions an association might ask is: Does giving away free content lessen the value of membership in the association? This question is the same dilemma that publishing companies faced years ago: Would giving away free content mean losing paid subscribers?  The answer to the first question is no (as is the answer to the second question). Quite the opposite.
