Sea of Shared Knowledge
I had (and still have) a dream that the web could be
less of a television channel and more of an
interactive sea of shared knowledge. I imagine
it immersing us as a warm, friendly environment
made of the things we and our friends have
seen, heard, believe or have figured out. I would like it
to bring our friends and colleagues closer, in
that by working on this knowledge together we can
come to better understandings.

“If you don’t know HOW to
USE Social Media as a Networking
You are probably not very
marketable in the first place…..”
“To compete for consumers’ time and divided attention, brands must also find ways to
better resonate with their audiences.”
“Building a successfulmultichannel
marketing campaign requires the right mix of
channels that offer brands the ability to
reach and engage consumers,”

Most die-hard fans are simply looking for people who share in their interests. Help them come together with events, online groups, email lists -- anything that makes it easy for them to meet one another. Once you've made the meet-up possible (online or off), you can get out of the way and let them do the talking.
