Talent usually separates itself from the crowd.  Social Media is no different.  When you have become informative and dependable, people will begin to rely on your judgement.

Darius Douglass, you are so right - all you have to do is look at someone's digital footprint, it's all there for you to see beyond the facade - if someone is truly demonstrating not talking about social media, that's all you have to know

Jan, I agree with you I do try to comment on my social media sights with my followers when I have the time. That is the key, reading the content and finding the time to communicate. It is a hard balance.

Great insight into why things go viral.  "Why Things Catch On" is a must read for online marketers.  Not so much about social media valuations, but an interesting read none-the-less.

Something "triggers" us to make a move.  It is something in the environment...in psychology we call it a "stimulus" that elicits a "response".  What is that stimulus that triggers so many responses in people that make word of mouth really work.  Perhaps there is a science to it...but why does Rebecca Black's Friday video have millions of views, and your YouTube video that has amazing information has 10?  Clearly Rebecca has a trigger that you and I do not have...what is it?

According to findings of a new study by the Webby Awards, Social Media platforms really do allow people to influence the purchasing activities of their connections.

Social Content Marketing is no longer an Option.


Our web traffic will live or die on how well we engage in social media. Google Plus and Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and YouTube and LinkedIn and Yelp are all part of our social sphere of influence.

Randi Thompson's curator insight, February 6, 9:43 AM

Those are pretty good numbers.  6 out of 10 people are not buying products because other people have shared them.  Who would have thought?

renata mello's curator insight, February 21, 11:10 AM

Can we really influence people? Should we just listen to what they have to say and tell stories and ways to help them?
