Happy to be participating in the upcoming Social Media Week. I'll be part of a panel in Vancouver that also includes folks from Jostle and Chess Media Group that will be discussing real world challenges to implementing social business solutions in real organizations.

Vertical niches in social media monitoring. An interesting concept that, after a bit of thought, makes quite a bit of sense. A service that could make sense of the specialized language associated with a certain vertical, as well as monitoring more specific forums and sites, would be able to provide distinct value add in whatever vertical they chose to specialize in.

"Cruvee" appears to be fully custom built. But it seems possible that some easily extensible platform will emerge that will make it a lot easier to "verticalize". One that would allow you to easily plug in a custom lexicon, plug in custom sources, and voila - niche social monitoring site!

thx to +Steve Hamrick for sharing.
Cruvee is unlike any social media monitoring tool out there; it focuses solely on one vertical, the wine industry. Is this the beginning of a trend?

Readable analysis of how much the Facebook business is probably realistically worth. Answer - about $75B. However, with all the hype, the market cap may get driven higher than that in the short term following the IPO.
