Mindjumpers

People today speak of the blogosphere as a collective term of bloggers. The blogosphere, even though it is spread across the world, can be considered as social network in itself or a community where people are inspired by each other and share information and views.

Sherrilynne Starkie

However brands are spending 57% of their social budgets on Facebook and only six per cent on blogs.

Social Media Clout: Klout them up – don’t you know who I am?

Laurel Papworth

Klout is the social media ranking tool – tells companies how influential a twitterer or blogger or Pinterester is in influencing others to find, filter and forward their stuff.
