Drew, thanks for sharing this list and showing how you use the tools. Having just come off of the 4th annual Bathroom Blogfest, which used Twitter more heavily than ever, some of these I've become aware of. But, many others not! Hope you had a good Halloween! CB

A lovely and appropriate rant. I believe the practice has to do with agencies and clients both not understanding the new world order, being too much in love with shouting at customers and applying the same mindset to new social tools. Then, they can say "we've done social media!" Hah. It truly is a whole other way of thinking and communicating, and it requires that those who 'get' it be constantly teaching and reinforcing the new ways. It also requires that clients be eager to not simply hand-off brand building and relationship building to outside resources, but rather than they be intimately involved. That's a major mind shift from saying "make it so, agency!" Lots of hand holding ahead, right?

David, you certainly hit on many of the 'dirty' secrets I'm grappling with. Thanks for encapsulating them so succinctly. Hope you're well. Best, CB
Anna, thanks so very much for participating in and sharing your wonderful insights. Your point B above is one that I think of often now; it's so very appropriate! Can you tell that I loved being able to turn the tables on you? Best, CB

Valeria, fascinating post and thanks for connecting it to your interview on Flooring The Consumer. This to me captures how marketing can create value moments: "...dedication, work that matters, trust and relationships rule. It doesn't stop there - it extends further into creating amazing experiences that become powerful reference points. That's where the value comes in. It's about them, not you. Yet, you do have the power to make that happen." Thank you, Valeria.
Rich, thank you for making the time to participate in my social media series despite your hectic schedule. I really appreciate it and also that you mention it here! Best, CB

Paula, congratulations and best of luck. And, thank you for this thought-provoking and absolutely on target post. I enjoyed learning about what you've created at H&R Block through Francois' CMO 2.0 conversation and really look forward to hearing about your next chapter. CB
Susan, I can't thank you enough for profiling Flooring The Consumer on Customer Experience Crossroads, and doing so with such flair and in such depth. One other learning that just occurred to me is that you need to experiment with these tools long enough to 'relax' and not be so self-conscious while using them. In blogging, that corresponds to finding your voice. Again, thanks!

Greg, I love your daughter's active involvement with George and AoC. Mine wasn't too thrilled to see him being sent off to have more fun without her - but she does feel better about it seeing yours. Glad that George still seems to have his copy of AoC!
