My career mission? To cut out the hype and help companies make sense of what to do. For those fraught with information overload, this definitive matrix distills what matters. Situation: New Contender Shakes Up Industry Google has entered the social networking play with “Buzz”, and by the look of it, this time it’s for real. Five Reasons Why Corporate Blogs Fail - Technorati Guru. Corporate blogging has become incredibly popular in the business to business (B2B) sector.
Industries that were once thought inhospitable to blogs, these tools are not only popping up but are making a profound difference in marketing, relationship cultivation and client interaction. Yet too often, the full potential isn’t realized. Corporate blogs either don’t deliver on expectations or, worse, are left to suffer a quiet, lonely death.

A new Twitter record - 3282 tweets per second. On average Twitter sees 750 tweets per second being sent out says the Blog Herald. By comparison, a Twitter record was broken twice in succession last week, first during the NBA basketball finals in the States, and second during the Japan / Denmark match in the World Cup.
