Only Half Way There – Sean McGinnis
The first word this week goes to social media consultant and self professed ‘guru clan founder’ Sean McGinnis
Sean appreciated the ‘How’ part of our post How To Customize Your Twitter Profile URL but commented that this is only half of the Twitter strategy puzzle.
Deploying a strategy around when to change it
-that’s the other half!
Absolutely Sean. Figuring out why and when you should implement a Twitter strategy is just as important as figuring how.

Twitter Chats are a great way to promote a brand or a business, says ZFX – and they can also be used to connect with a group of interesting, like minded Tweeters like the #Usguys for example:

And the Last Word Goes To…
Writer, blogger and dog guy Dino Dogan took a higher ground perspective in response to our post Why Facebook Groups Are a Poor Choice for Small Business.
It helps if the community (on Facebook or otherwise) is organized around the same cause and has higher targets in mind, rather than simple profit.
Very well said Dino!
While most businesses are out to make a profit, they shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that social media allows them to treat their customers as connections rather than commodities. Those businesses that remember this will be the ones to thrive on social media.
