The Social Media ROI Conversation - Getting Social Media Buy-in

Many of us have had that painful conversation with our boss...trying to convince people your organization that social media is an important aspect of business practices.

How do you get buy-in? What obstacles have you encountered in your social media efforts and how did you deal with them?

What is Social Business and why does it matter?

How is the new era of social technology contributing to the business of tomorrow? The organization of tomorrow? How are these changes taking place? What technology tools are being used?

It's been said that organized groups are creating greater efficiency (and scaring the pants off of governments).

Many businesses and organizations have begun to transfer the lessons of public social platforms such as Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter to improve their communication and collaboration.

The historical separation between the inside and outside environments of a company is losing importance.

The decision making and change management responsibilities are no longer restricted to managers (traditional organization) or to customers (as prescribed by Social CRM). Other than managers, organizational change can be driven equally by customers, employees, partners and suppliers. All these categories are moving from supporting actors to partners and protagonists

Social Media Uses for Educators and Students

Social Media Uses for Educators and Students

I'm curious to learn how educators and students are already using social media and to figure out what more could be done, if there's a hold up, and if so how to overcome the barriers. It seems like social media isn't being used to its fullest potential in the field of education. Of course, I could be very wrong. It could also be that this is two separate discussions - one for educators and one for students. Thoughts?
