12 helpful books about social media. I am an avid reader, and many of my fellow social media practitioners ask for recommendations on the ones I think are the most helpful.
Here are some of the books I share with them: 1. “Brains on Fire: Igniting Powerful, Sustainable, Word of Mouth Movements” by Robbin Phillips, Greg Cordell, Geno Church, Spike Jones One of my favorite books on marketing and social media, “Brains on Fire” offers original, practical, and actionable steps for creating a word-of-mouth movement for corporations, products, services, and organizations. It takes you step-by-step through the necessary actions to start your own authentic movement. Read this book, find the answers to those questions, and develop and harness a powerful, sustainable word-of-mouth movement for your brand. 2. The ultimate guide to branding and building your business in the era of the social Web, “Engage!” Brian Solis is one of my favorite thought leaders in the space and he never disappoints.

Toute l'histoire des médias sociaux. Auto. ROI. Applications. Influentials On The Web Are People With The Power To Link. In the networked web era, influentials may not be people with a particularly connected temperament or Rolodex, or people who control and influence monopoly distribution channels (e.g. newspapers), but rather people who influence the network by leveraging the most powerful force on the web — the link.
People like bloggers, top Diggers, del.icio.us power users, Facebook users who share lots of links, MySpace users who embed videos, Twitter users who post lots of URLs, or any social network user with links to lots of friends. This idea jives with a provocative article in Fast Company about a new disruptive Duncan Watts theory. After last year debunking the “wisdom of the crowds” using the theory of cumulative advantage, Watts is back, this time debunking the idea that there is a class of “influentials” who is more likely than others to spread ideas, trends, product endorsements, or anything else that can be spread virally.

From grandparents to teenagers, Facebook — the largest of the social networks — attracts users of all ages. A recent study by Forrester found that of U.S. adults who use social networking sites, 96% of them are on Facebook. Ninety-eight percent of both the members of the Golden Generation (ages 67 and up) and Gen Z'ers (ages 18 to 22) who use social networking sites are on Facebook. And no age group dipped below the 95% mark.
Facebook beats the other social networking sites by a long-shot, too. Twitter, the third most used social network, is most popular among younger users, and membership drops off incrementally for older audiences. The youngest members are also likely to be the most active users of any of the social networks.
