@kamichat I'd love to see the data on this since I've been wondering about it. I like Digital Echo; I've been calling it the social media echo chamber. Yours is shorter.

Totally agree with your assessment. Social media meltdown needs another source of fuel to ignite it into fire storm (or a crisis.) And traditional media is that source to bring it mainstream.
Thank you so much for your kind words. This sort of situation should be planned for when running any sort of event and should include mechanics on how to manage refunds, etc. A dark site is ideal, but having a nimble organization able to update their website quickly is also a good start to communicating effectively.

This is pretty common issue facing a lot of us active on social media. And I have to admit I've done it to at least one person. I try not to be knee-jerk about these things since it is so very serious.
So glad you are writing this column. It is so helpful.

Well see someone important was reading your blog! But seriously your previous post was brilliant and spot on.

Solid advice. I think people are too quick to pass judgement on others without context.

I've got a question to pose: are organizations not culturally progressive as their customers? Perhaps organizations have not evolved while their customers have socially and culturally.

@ginidietrich @dino_dogan Gini, we do live in a bubble. A bubble we share with some pretty cool people who have set expectations high. As it should be. I'd rather reach for the bar then bend over to pick it up. Our Moms are correct: It is a big deal we wrote books.

So very true. All great points. I have to be a Debbie Downer, but I think the shine is wearing off already at least with the folks I'm connected to on Vine. I don't see the same levels of posting as a did when it first launched. Maybe it is just developing a patina and maturing from that bright new toy phase. I'm still having fun with it... by using the Vine videos I've taken for other platforms.

I'd be interested to know if they would be differences between men and women. I know when I exercise in the morning and grab an apple before workout then had breakfast, I did lose more.

I think companies are being led down side-streets by shiny new objects. Blinded by the newness and coolness of it all they are losing focus. For me, it all comes back to know your business and customers allowing for an express route instead of side-streets.

I like Jim's attitude towards social media. He is correct when he says, "Social media loves a “Try-er.” Yes, that's what makes social media so great in my mind.

I agree with you that influence metrics are here to stay for better or worse. Betting the house on Klout isn't a smart yet for an individual or business. The metrics aren't stable and refined enough currently. It hasn't matured enough to really provide real honest value.

@SusanOakes I appreciate your last paragraph... A LOT! Thank you for saying that. Too many people blindly follow the new shiny object.

Erica - thanks for your post. I'm finding that there is a disconnect as to how businesses interact with female entrepreneurs who just happen to be moms.

@ginidietrich Nothing is ever perfect and it shouldn't be. Perfection means no room for change or grow for me. Beta is always best.
Delaying to get it right is always the right choice. So no worries!
