I want to present the major ideas behind the book, but I also want to drive home the point that so much of what makes Social Media work is the common sense and manners that make for good humans.
As more tools get released the later part seems to be forgotten more and more and worse yet businesses of all size put on their marketing hats and forget the basics.

It may not be the end of social media exactly, but the days of ad hoc and chaotic social initiatives may be coming to a close. As medium sized and large organizations come to the realization that “social” needs integration across multiple business functions, they will take the first step toward social business integration. While social media may be measured in likes and followers, the success of social business initiatives will be evaluated by how effectively they can scale and be executed globally. In his session, David will outline the co-dependent relationship between social brand and business, and outline the migration path from developing media which is socialized, to truly becoming a connected business.

Depending on which study you read, between 30 and 70 percent of all companies block employee access to social media. Fueled by panic-inducing back-of-the-envelope calculations from companies that stand to profit from FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt), organizational leaders think they’re protecting their company and keeping employees focused on work when, in reality, they’re denying their organizations the considerable ROI employees can contribute given appropriate policies, training and processes. This session will arm you with the rationale you need to remove the blocks and start getting your employees engaged with their networks nad communities on the company’s behalf.
