Many people struggle to understand social media. So-called social media experts run courses on the topic. Others describe themselves as gurus and charge loadsamoney to receive their pearls of wisdom.

I’m a great believer in simplicity. So if you’re struggling to understand this topic then can I suggest you use this excellent guide?

Oh – and for ecademy users: ‘My pee belongs to us.”

And to finish – here’s a piece from my good friend Tom Foremski:

Social media is useful to businesses because it offers what Shel Israel and Robert Scoble call “naked conversations” you can listen-in to customers when previously you couldn’t except through expensive market research focus groups.

But if corporations try to turn social media into a corporate sales or marketing channel then they risk losing the naked conversations, and the insight into customer behaviors — it’s no longer social media but some form of mutant corporate media.

Hat tip to Sameer Patel who does know his stuff

But, can you write your name in the snow with an @ in front?

I don’t know – it doesn’t snow where I live…or rather one morning a year ;)

Would be useful if you could describe the main image used, and interpret the different uses of social networks for enterprise. I like your point that Social media is not just about ‘Marketing 2.0′, it’s about encouraging a social workforce to help customers.
