Social TV and the second screen both just got a lot more interesting. i.TV's new acquisition, GetGlue, drives 30%-plus of the Twitter chatter around any given TV show. Very thoughtful coverage by AdAge's Simon Dumenco.

E-commerce drives the practice of "showrooming," driving bricks & mortar stores out of business. Social media and social commerce, on the other hand, have a more balanced effect. In fact, it turns out Pinterest, in particular, is actually driving a reverse-showrooming effect: people want to hold and touch Pinned items before buying them, and that's driving them back into real-world stores. http://lnkd.in/6nDMMh

For example, it's not surprising that the most popular social media platform among top CEOs is LinkedIn, but how many of them are basically just using their LinkedIn accounts as an online Rolodex?
