“A powerful global conversation has begun. Through the Internet, people are discovering and inventing new ways to share relevant knowledge with blinding speed. As a direct result, markets are getting smarter-and getting smarter faster than most companies.”
This quote summarizes the essential position taken by the writers of The Cluetrain Manifesto, first published in 2000, arguably more accurate today then when originally written.
Social networking online is big, and growing! Do you have a Facebook account? How about LinkedIn, Twitter,Flickr? The list goes on. If Facebook were a country, it would be the eighth most populated in the world, just ahead of Japan and Russia.
