BucholtzCRM Buyer 01/27/11 5:00 AM PT Opening a "social PR" channel to address customer complaints on Twitter, for example, is fine.

Social Media Agency Brands are still not taking Twitter Seriously I’m not nitpicking. But let’s talk about social media icons. We’re starting to see them on everything. Specifically the Twitter and Facebook icons. Just because we see them, doesn’t mean that those companies are “social”, that they are engaged, fully engaged or partly engaged. We can easily call it social media lip service, but when I checked the Twitter presence of some of the top 100 global brands according the Businessweek-engagement was little or none, and in a lot of cases, the brands didn’t even possess the Twitter handle. For example, @Disney has over 140,000 followers and yet has only tweeted 210 times. Check out @Samsung 2500 followers and… a total of 8 tweets.

Awareness, Inc. | Social Marketing Software Instagram: Picture a New Breed of Startup Over the past decade, the market for photo-sharing services on the Internet has come to resemble a relay race, with one service after another rising to prominence and then passing the baton of buzz and leadership to a more innovative newcomer. Photo upload sites such as Ofoto and Shutterfly (SFLY) dominated the field in the late 1990s as people uploaded digital pics to the Web primarily so they could have them printed. Flickr emerged in 2004 and was acquired by Yahoo! (YHOO) the following year, giving serious photographers a place to publish and show off high-resolution images. Other sites such as Google's (GOOG) Picasa, Myspace's (NWS) Photobucket, and more recently Facebook have each taken a turn at the head of the pack. Now the digerati are showering attention on a new photo service-cum-social network for the iPhone called Instagram, which in four months has managed to attract more than 1.75 million users who are uploading 290,000 photos a day.
