I like this quote by Mickey McCarter:

"Remember that people are there because they want to be. They are not being forced into a social media environment."

I actually went and got a copy of the report mentioned in this article - it is well worth looking at too. And don't let the "Crisis Communications" stop you, there is a very good read for anyone doing anything on social media.

I really liked this article - and think it applies to everyone on social media.

I totally agree with staying message focused instead of channel focused. Make that strategic message focused and I think that was the key to the success of my first Tweet Plan. I see so many people get caught up in the "fun" channel gadgets and how they identify themselves with this that they forget the value of their message.
