I dropped by to see what you had to say and was surprised to read this. And totally agree! It's a lot more fun in smaller communities where you actually know the others.
This also fits into the trend I've noticed lately in becoming more 'real'.

Well, this was a very interesting read, @nickkellet ! It's GREAT to see lists in action and to really understand the mechanics of how lists work to create action, move forward... and break through the noise!

Great points Jay! I've got a background in international business development across a wide range of businesses and I have to say that one of the first things I notice is whether the social media "consultant" or "expert" has a business background or not. People with real business expertise really stand out. But I also notice that different levels of business expertise are called upon for the different ways you can use social media.

Great point Stacey! I've also noticed how marketing has changed lots over the last few years in part thanks to the web. The one thing I'd noticed and this probably falls into many of your points here, is that many marketers don't "tie up all of loose ends". This is something you notice on the receiving end. I really notice how well things are "tied up" when I run into a company that executes their marketing well.
