Social Media, What Do You Want From It?

Social Media, What Do You Want From It?


This week I was in Houston as many of you know who follow me on Twitter know. I was taking part in the 2009 Marketing in The Oilfield Conference. My panel was Leverging Social Media. It was a great event and I had a really nice time. As I networked and meet interesting people, I started to notice something about the folks there. There were lots of comments like:

-I’m here to learn about Social Media

-I really don’t understand this stuff, but I am here to learn

-We are here to get more clients

-I am here to learn about brand management.

-We came to learn more about Twitter

Okay, you get the idea lots of different reasons for coming to this event. So I thought it would be interesting to ask you why your wanting to learn about Social Media. What is it you want to get out of it? Is it for your company? Your personal brand? Is there a message you want to get out? Why are you spending time learning about it?

Leave your thoughts, comments, insight in the comments please… lets have a discussion

The 140 Twitter Conference Is Over…Say It Is Not So!!

The 140 Twitter Conference Is Over…Say It Is Not So!!


So the following comments are my own personal thoughts regarding the 140 The Twitter Conference. They are impartial   and not biased. You may think they could be biased due to the following things, which I will share in list form, as people like lists:

-I was on the “Best Practices: How to be a Twitter God(dess) panel with Tara Hunt and Ijustine.

LSF Interactive was a Media Sponsor

-There was a press release

-There was a fancy bio about me.

-I well…use Twitter a little..just a little really!

-I got to stand on stage! Here is what it looked like from my point of view:

Okay, so disclaimer is out of the way, now back to the review of the conference.

So instead of me typing up a review about what happened who did what, etc, etc. I thought I would try something different. Ill let the links do the talking…

Live blogging from #140tc Alex Payne (head of Twitter’s API team)

The Twitterverse, a map of Twitter tools

-Live blog of the @anamitra keynote at #140tc

Tara Hunts ” 40 Reasons Why Twitter Rawks”

Heck here are some more presentation slides

What I learned at the 140 Twitter Conference

Pictures..we have pictures

Mercury News Article

-140tc Search Results

So there you go, seems to have been a pretty cool event. Fingers crossed it happens again next year

If you have any links that I missed, which no doubt I did. Please share them!

P.S. Not sure who to give photo credit to at top. Let me know if it is your photo!

The Social Media Shameless Link Post

The Social Media Shameless Link Post


The quilt..it weighs heavy on my shoulders.  I did not put up a blog post last week. I suck. I know. So maybe I am the only one who cares. Most people probably could care less about what I blog about. So, to that one person who cares…fine…..to my Mom.. I’m sorry.

So, on that high note, this is not going to be much of a post, but a bunch of links and information about things that are going on or up and coming. I thought it would be a good idea to share several things with you. Yes, some of it is me doing shameless plugs. I am, sorry in advance. I will share this information with you in list form, as people like lists:


-This Friday, April 17th I will be speaking at the Bay Area New Media Summit at Bently Reserve. I will be on the panel “How to Socialize Your Video”.


-On April 23rd there is a “Peninsula Twitter & Facebook Meet-Up” at the Dutch Goose in Menlo Park, California. This is my first time organizing such an event, so I hope don’t mess it up. Please pass this information on, all our welcome to attened this 7:00 pm event.


The Project 100 is a project I was flattered to be part of. It is  100 Marketers who are allowed 400 words each to write a collaborative book on “Project 100: Marketing in the Social Media Era“. All profits go to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. You can get a preview of the book here.


The Community 2.0 Conference is May 11-13, 2009 ath the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Myself,  Connie Bensen and Kellie Parker will be leading an all day workshop called “Getting Started with Community” on May 11.

Social Media Club

This weekly event is all recorded on a podcast and lead by Chris Heuer.  Learn more about the Social Media Club Question of The Week and the podcast/blog here.

Your Week In Review

Your Week In Review

5 Weeks down for 2009 and 47 weeks to go! Amazing! Its been a busy week in social media. Let me share with you some of the items I find interesting or worth passing on!


– #3 I wore braces

#4  I don’t like mayo

#5… you get the idea, I’m referring to the 25 Random Things Chain letter that is just rocking Facebook right now.  How big is it? Huge! Get this… per Facebook they state that:

  • The number of total Facebook Notes created per day has increased over 100% in the last week
  • The number of people tagged in Facebook Notes per day has increased 5x in the last week

Crazy! Now not everyone is a fan, check out this great article by Claire Suddath called 25 Things I didn’t Want to Know About You

Since I am sharing about Facebook, which is still getting hotter here are a few other articles worth checking out, if only for grins:

Wife Learns of Divorce via Facebook Status Update

Facebook Turned 5 years Old

Fears of impostors increase on Facebook


Social Media is only getting bigger! More and more companies are getting on board and using it have an online presence to interact with clients, build their brand and well increase sales. In short, everyone is doing it. Do not believe me? Just take a list of the Top 100 Social Brands of 2008. Oh and the top 10 are:

1. iPhone

2. CNN

3. Apple

4. Disney

5. Xbox

6. Starbucks

7. Ipod

8. MTV

9. Sony

10. Dell

Did your company make the list? No worries as  Mitch Joel points out, Social Media Is Just Getting Started!

Keep in mind that 93% of social media users do expect  that companies should be using social media! Take a look at this study from Sept 2008 by Cone


-Virtual Worlds, something close to my heart and it seems Disney as well. Disney will be investing more money into them and believes they are close to being profitable.

Okay, couple random things  I just wanted to share.

First, check out this video from 1981. It is a segment done by San Francisco station KRON about newspapers going on the web. It is worth the 2:17 to watch it. As they mention the crazy cost , how its experiment, and it takes over 2 hours to get the whole newspaper.

On February 25, 2009 at 8:30 am I will be speaking at the Emerging Media Morning forum in Palo Alto, CA. So if you are bored come on by and say HI!
