Nice stuff Jeannie. Small suggestion, I would change #1 to "Community managers are nurtured, not trained". No one is born with people skills. They learn them through life or they don't. Parents, teachers, friends, spouse, etc. But rarely, as you point out, can you take a person that hates people and train them in a few weeks to be good at community focused tasks.

Dude. Brilliant stuff. I still love the phrase 'Get Shit Done' but I also cannot argue with anything you have laid out here. If you were not busy starting your own business(es), I think you would make a great CMO at a company with your social/community experience and clear grasp of what makes a good manager.

Great stuff DJ! For #3 I would just add that you make the CTA a button if possible. We like to touch buttons on phones. =)

@TomMartin Not always cost effective for a full video recording. Do you mean record it on your own? Or just whatever you can manage?

Great post Arik. It is always challenging to cover a book without what is usually a boring Q&A style blog post. This is much better.

Keep in mind Google Glass will use head movement too for navigating. So, voice will not be the only UI. Which is good. And we will all look like we have a weird series of ticks.

The link to Google analytics help pages does not work. Trying to solve this problem right now with GA goal tracking through eventbrite. Not getting all the data I want yet.

If you are having articles syndicated a best practice is to have them use the rel=canonical tag. This tells Google which article is the original. A link at the top helps, but is not always enough. More detail on that can be found at SEOmoz of course, here is one link:http://www.seomoz.org/learn-seo/canonicalization

I think the numbers are a little inflated as well, but keep in mind they are not saying of "all US people." They are saying US online adults. So take the online population of the US, and then take out all those under the age of 12 (12 and up is how I have seen the "US adult" defined in the past by companies like Edison).

@arikhanson @drewhawkins It still matters. If you count the number of people with physically published social media books, what number are we talking about here, 200? Out of how many thousand social media marketers, agencies, consultants?

I have huge respect for anyone that writes a book in our industry. And even more if I can actually get through it.

Don't forget to target job titles. Use LinkedIn to research the typical job titles of the journalists you want to reach.
