So what does it mean to be addicted to Twitter? That’s a question many people have tried to answer. The scale has many ratings and what seems like perfectly normal behavior for some is considered beyond addiction to others. The fine line between these camps would be much too hard to explain, so I will restrain myself from even going further into this question. Am I addicted to Twitter? Very much so! I am, of course, talking about the printable Twitter Paper Toy that you can download, cut out and assemble. So don’t chicken out (Get it? #friendbomb - Build Your Network and Accelerate the Awakening. FCC asks court to dismiss suits over "net neutrality" rules. Social Media ROI for Idiots. Some companies are still have trouble understanding the return on investment of a well-run social media campaign.

In an effort to take into account short attention spans and a general lack of interest in changing hard and fast attitudes we've put together a quick, and easy, piece here to show how social media not only gives a great return on investment, it now surpasses most traditional media. Traditional ROI is calculated: ROI = (revenue - investment) / Investment * 100. Or: ROI = (∆ revenue - investment) / Investment * 100. Where, for those of you who have forgotten grade 9 math, ∆ revenue means "change in revenue". Ok, so that's how companies have traditionally determined if the cash they're shelling out for an ad campaign is worth the effort. The 2nd formula is a bit smarter because it's easier to quantify the campaign's success if you know what your sales were before you began. Now that we've got that sorted we can move on to social media. Or this one... how about this one... Connect: Facebook and LinkedIn - How to Define Their Purposes.

The Top 10 Twitter Clients To Help You Tweet Better - Blog - Marty McPadden | Technology, Photography, Video, Social Media. Twitter may not be as popular as Facebook yet but the social media platform has grown leaps and bounds since I started using the site in September of 2007. It is through this site that I had the chance to meet people from all over the world, but the best part of joining Twitter is the loads of information that I get everyday. Imagine having so many people to talk with 24/7. This is particularly helpful for me considering the time that I also keep because of my work.

The latest was last week’s popular, Top 75 Badass Women on Twitter on Bit Rebels by Diana Adams @adamsconsulting and Amy Howell @HowellMarketing.

It’s an awesome post, and there is no doubt that women are a strong and powerful force on Twitter, but it got me thinking… I have yet to see a list of the top men, and many of ‘us guys’ have been feeling left-out! So, I decided to start my own list, The Top Dogs of Twitter. I asked my good friend and Twitter Badass herself, Lori McNee @lorimcneeartist to help me out. Lori wrote her own popular list a while back entitled, Social Media’s Top Stars Share Their Tips on Twitter. Lori and I started collaborating on who we both felt were truly The Top Dogs of Twitter. We made this list to represent the working professionals and the average Joe who are in the Twitter trenches, day in, and day out. So, in random order, a special thanks goes out to, “The 50 Top Dogs of Twitter” Seven steps to nailing the perfect social media guidelines. With more and more companies flocking to Twitter, Facebook and the rest, brands that want to take social media seriously and start getting wider internal involvement should consider putting together some social media guidelines.

This will ensure you get the most out of your social media efforts by giving employees the freedom to really get stuck in. The use of the word ‘guidelines’ is apt for this sort of document. By definition, social media isn’t something that works well with strict rules and regulations. However, it would be foolish for a company with responsibilities to investors, a board or even a stock market, to take an ‘anything goes’ approach to social media. So guidelines should be put in place to protect the company, but also to nurture involvement. Guidelines, if put together correctly can give internal stakeholders the confidence they need to take up the social baton and run with it. Where do I start? Seek inspiration.

Year 2010 was a monumental year for Facebook as it made great inroads into the business user community. And surely, the world’s leading social network couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2011 as one of the biggest names in the publishing industry, Washington Post announced its decisions to launch SocialCode, a subsidiary that will help brands build and monetize their presence on Facebook.

And why am I so excited about it? IMO, this is huge from a business perspective as it bridges the gap between publishing and advertising agencies. I see it as a precedent for convergence between traditional media and digital media. What is SocialCode? To put it simple words, SocialCode is a proprietary system built on top of the Facebook ads application programming interface. Facebook’s advertising APIs are public, easy to use and therefore it isn’t surprising that they’ve been adopted by thousands of businesses worldwide.
