I thought these were all common-sense things that didn't need to be said - but apparently they do. Nice job, Andrea

It was a lot of fun and I loved the book. Thanks for making me part of the team. And I'm with Nikki, I don't understand how so many didn't come through. I guess that's just human nature. But, hey, if I could still do it given my situation, they could have too!

 @TodaysTomSawyer Absolutely. We all get frustrated when we find this stuff online. Flailing about and spewing hate in return rarely works in your favor. Thanks for the comment.

I don't mind using emoticons - they are helpful or even fun sometimes. But they've been around for a long time already. What I don't like about the new Facebook tool is that it adds a "feeling sentiment" message beside the emoticon. If I make a sad face, it doesn't require a "- feeling sad" next to it. 

 

The other parts, what you're reading and such - don't have a strong feeling about it yet. Does seem more like a marketing ploy than a useful tool. Time will tell

Thanks, Gini

We're always talking about how you "need to tell your brand's story" these days, but few actually know what that means, other than finding interesting things about it and sharing them (which is fine content, don't get me wrong). This is as good a way as I've seen to describe it.

 @janicearnoldi Thanks, Janice. Yeah it was a real eye opener as to the power of adding the right visuals. It was just a nice shot we had of one our helicopters in flight, but it tied into the quote, which was about the feelings shared by those who fly.

 @janicearnoldi Thanks for your comment Janice. Perhaps it gives you a decent snapshot for a quick glance. But, if I was hiring, I would certainly put way more stock in the recommendations than the endorsements. And that's pretty much what the HR people I talked to said as well. Which is a long way to say, I agree. :)

 @BradReason Thanks, Brad. I like your thoughts on SoMe being a shared collaboration - that is truly part of the experience and learning what works and what doesn't from watching others in the space is certainly something we all do.

When I find that guy, he's in trouble! Actually, I think it sounds like a fabulous resource even for veterans and I have mad respect for Mr. Barger. If I don't win it, I'll definitely go out and buy it!

My social media strategy is uneven and rocks back and forth. This book is just the right size to help. If I put it under the short leg, the strategy will be solid. JK, I'd love to read Chris' book. Thanks for sharing, Juli
