I hope it was a helpful read.

@lauraclick I haven't seen anything about when they are going to add more publishers. It supposed to roll out to everyone so that will be crazy! I'm interested to see how it shakes out.

@Jeff Sieh @stephanhov I think each blog probably has it's own needed strategy. It's not as easy as saying doing XYZ and ABC will happen. There are so many variables.

@stephanhov Look at the flares right now - this is a Google+ post and LinkedIn is the top referrer so far.
@stephanhov Also, Google+ is hardly ever in my top referrals to my blog. So while I would love people to come and share the love on the Plus, it happens but not as much as through Pinterest. In the past month my top 4 referrrers were Pinterest, LinkedIn, StumbleUp, and then Google+, followed by Twitter.
@stephanhov I agree with your perceptions and how people look at the numbers. I really wonder how many people do look at those or if it's more our hyper-focused group?
As an example, I did something last week on my LinkedIn post and broke the flare count on the post. I had hundreds and it went to zero and finally some ticked back in. The total flares for the post are only in the 40's but the total traffic to the post to date is about 1400 page views. So, while it might matter if there are more +1's on the post, I'm not sure if many people look at it. They might though!
@lynneknowlton Hi Lynne!! I hope you found what you needed - let me know if you have questions about how to post or about Google+. :)

@madlemmings Businesses and blogs are fantastic on Pinterest. I loved seeing the little signs at Christmas for Top Pinned Item on Pinterest in the Target stores!

@annacadizbennett Thank you for sharing your ideas, Anna!
@MZazeela A big piece of customer service is just simply saying "we hear you" and then solving the problem. If people complain on Twitter and @mention the brand and get no response, I'm sure if just adds to their frustration and anger. For very large brands, they have to balance the amount "customer service" tweets and more positive interactions along with their regular content. Many brands have a separate customer service account and the smart brands move the conversation to direct message or email immediately.

@TinaGammon Hashtags are really a great way to connect with others on the same topic and make new connections. I like #MotivationMonday too and I've also seen #MondayMotivation. :D

@MelanieKissell That's my little social media motto. :) Glad you liked it!
@alisammeredith I think it's important for brand's to engage in multiple ways with people on social media and the testimonials are great! Some brands get so caught up in responding to all the negative comments or just sharing their message with nothing else, a gentle balance between it all is great in my opinion.
