Good stuff! I've actually pulled the presentation up so I can watch the video and view the slides at length.
I smell a future collaboration...... :)
Thank you for sharing with us,

@jureklepic @connectyou @DanielGHebert Jure, what are Klout perks? (kidding)
I think *one* way to look at this is from the ROI standpoint. Not the only way. Is the exploration of ROI valuable? Yes. I am glad that you and others lead that charge.
While I respect that others may not share my view, I don't believe that every action should be tied to a mathematical equation or bottom line. I find that limiting, and not inclusive of an entire picture.
In real life, there is certainly an "art of creating action." Some people are artists and others are not. If the real point is to drive purchases - real life action - then we cannot ignore it.
"Creating action" and "persuasion" are synonyms. Quit splitting hairs. :)

@Danny Brown @connectyou @DanielGHebert @jkcallas Danny, what a wonderful offer! I admire your delving into this topic and offering a trustable resource. I would be happy to read and examine the book and also write a review. What steps should I take to make this easy? :)
A very good post! Inclusive and fair as well.
I like @DanielGHebert's definition of influence: "Influence is the art of creating action. In the case of social media, this could be creating action personally, or on behalf of a brand."
I can see why brands want to know and understand social influence and influencers online. Mark does a great job of covering the topic from a business perspective.
Jure does have a point - To date, the platforms haven't quite gotten it right. Do I have a better answer? No. I hope we find one.
Daniel seems to be doing a good job of studying and offering insight on the topic. That is important, I believe, if we are to move the needle on the topic of social influence.
I am both happy and honored that you have included me on your list of influencers, and to be named among such a fine group! Thank you, Ray, for our complimentary words and gesture here!!
As I have stated, you are my Google+ Guy, and my go-to source. I have recommended you to others, and will continue to do so with big pleasure.
Thank you for sharing,
Great piece! Love the style, layout, and the assignments.
A great resource for entrepreneurs that need to get "unstuck" and "hot for teacher."
Thanks for sharing!

Nice job, Ray! The Google Authorship will be key coming up. Too many people are not hopping on board.
Way to inform... :)

I used to spend every Tuesday night at Twitter Chats. The Trilogy. And it was fun - I made a lot of friends. (Not business contacts). So, it was social time when my work was not getting done, or not getting done as fast.
I did also learn a few things over time. But that stopped, and the topics became re-runs.
Occasionally I learn of a new tweet chat, and I attend to meet new people, learn a few new things, and it is rewarding. Do I attend every week? It's impossible if I want to get things done.
I think you are mainly correct, Tim.
The differentiator would be diversity of set-up: Not the same format each time, hosting a hangout as well, as you mention. Better yet, offering something of value to the participants that they should access after the chat that contributes to their profession or place in life. Something that makes them look good!
Just my 2 cents.

This is helpful information -- Especially as we're gearing up for Facebook Graph Search, and making sure our settings are as we want them to be found (or not found).
Thank you, Klaudia. I will share this with my social circles!

I've not been in love with Google+, but I'm certainly feeling more "google love" as time goes on, as some of the functions have been improved, they are richer and have more benefits than other social networks, and....time heals. ;)
I'd love to be a part of your G+ community!
Thanks for always providing value,

Thank you for this sweet holiday trip! We talked a bit about lights -- I love the holiday sparkle and am missing it a bit this year. So, off into the world we'll go to look at others' displays to ooo and ahhh. :)
Thanks also for sharing about yourself and your favorites.
I always pictured Santa flying off to another place, but I did not define to where exactly. Just always expected he'd be tired with all that to do in a night! :)
For me, Christmas Carols heard on the radio meant the season was here. The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole is my favorite, and I really like Sleigh Ride with words by Johnny Mathis. Joy of Jesu Man's Desiring -- I could listen to that for hours! And the television specials -- I still watch them when I can. Burl Ives part as the snowman...makes me smile.
You might be interested to know Burl Ives son lives in my town.
Love the video -- Thanks for the special greeting!!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year...

Excellent work, Jure! The statistics still continue to stun me. Hopefully your words will influence others to hop on the cube! :D

@mattgron Excellent interview! Great questions, fabulous insight -- I couldn't stop watching!
@fondalo is one of the most authentic and responsive guys I know, and a true professional. Terrific to see his words focused upon. @Bundlepost is a tool I use, and it has brought new success to my business.
As I've been shifting my business to new directions, it has killed me to not be there sometimes "right now" when trying to get the busy work done. Robert is right -- NOW is sooo important. It's also a big part of what makes this all........social.
I'm so genuinely thrilled to be associated with both of you.

Sites like blogger.com & wordpress.com are great for folks that want to get their feet wet. But you know how I feel about owning our own content. ;)
You should consider putting your videos longer than 2 minutes into a library where you would eventually offer programs where people access for a subscription. :D
I too think Facebook has "cheapened" the like. We like everything now. I remember the first time I went to click that silly thumbs up, I wondered, "How do I know if I'll like this two weeks from now? I'm putting this on the Internet, it feels so final." Now I giggle that I even thought that!
While I see that electronic communication - of all types has it's value, I do see where the face-to-face seals the relationship. Do I call that a handshake friend? Not sure. It seems...........kinda a male term. ;)
Great ost! :)

It sounds like you made a realization. And, that you decided on the next move.
But what is it?? (so very curious)
is it a change of wardrobe? Will we not see you in your suit??
I say -- It's not the wardrobe that matters, but what one does with their abilities!!

Just terrific, Ray! You should put this on your "best of best" lists for resources.
Make a SlideShare and get yourself in front of groups presenting! The video is especially profound there.
