Brian Solis Sums It Up Again

Brian Solis Sums It Up Again

In a new blog post, Brian Solis sums up our technology / marketing headaches with social media. “Although the impact of technology on business and consumer behavior was widely reported, in-depth reports on what to do next or how this will affect their business specifically were scant at best. I’m sure you heard it from experts everywhere, “You need a Facebook brand page! Why are you not on Twitter yet? Have you checked-in on Foursquare? Hurry up and get set up on Google+.
