All of these are great apps. In particular, I would be lost without Evernote and Dropbox. Two additional suggestions would be Feedly and Flipboard, which are great for staying on top of industry news and posts.

@juliaprior Exactly! Now is the time for brands to be strategic. You don't need to be every "next big thing" site. Choose the ones that must align with your core goals.

@juliaprior Agreed! And, the Flash was a low estimate. Many sites are losing a lot more than 25% of their visitors.

@John_Trader1 I never realized just how important psychology truly is until I got into the community management space. Being able to understand human behavior and what triggers people to take action on something is one of the most underrated "soft skills."

@dbvickery I think it goes back to a little bit of what @jasonkonopinski said. If they are already engaged and uber active on other forums, don't try to reinvent the wheel and create your own forum or blog just because. Often times, it may be better to just be present and engage where your audience is already at.

@jasonkonopinski That brings up a great point, Jason. Brands don't necessarily have to create their own forum. In many cases, it's better just to be present where your audience is already sharing. However, just be engaging and helpful and not spammy.
@abdallahalhakim It's not necessarily just about sharing in public v. private areas. Forums are by no means always private, but in many cases, since they are smaller and often times more tightknit, they elicit a community feel which encourages people to share more candidly.
@barrettrossie Bingo! You nailed it.
@Danny Brown Exactly, Danny! Also, everyone isn't comfortable sharing publicly on Facebook and Twitter, but many will share in smaller forums. This is especially true for banking and medical industries.
Great food for thought. Admittedly, I know I have fallen into this trap more than once. Fear of failing or maybe just not living up to my very high expectations is a very real concern. That being said, if we don't take a chance, we will never fully know what you are capable of. Even if the chance results in a failure, it's a great learning experience. Much more so than just sticking to the straight, narrow and safe path.

@TechBarber You nailed it. Arguably, there is no such thing as an "overnight success." Usually the harder you work, the "luckier" you get.

@DavidBarber That's a great point. I've never understood people, who sign up for every social media site and then let all of them sit idle.
