I really dig this entertaining look at why social media are such a critical tool for  businesses. (The word "media" is still plural even when "social" comes before it, right?)
The attention of the consumer has changed, so why hasn't the attention of the marketers? Learn to communicate with your consumers like the year that it actua...

Interesting to see Reddit and Yammer growth tracking above Pinterest. Can't say I'm surprised that Instagram is stepping up quickly in adoption -- easy-to-use platform and rich images.

Wow! Talk about a game-changer. This move will have major implications for the growth of LinkedIn and open plenty of new opportunities for professionals in China, I imagine. /Nate

Smart people + rising social platforms = awesome opportunities for journalists to share content/engage new audiences

This is intriguing -- and you should be sure to check out early reviews in the App store. There's a 1-star (I think) rating that opines about the days of traditional jelly for use on breads, etc. It ends "Stick with Smuckers." Genius.

Great insights regarding how The New York Times uses Twitter to connect its audience with journalists -- and much more.

Great points here on quickly engaging with customers/news consumers and mastering emerging platforms -- including Google Plus. I'd add a fifth point: Read the AP Stylebook entry on social media. Lots of great pointers and quick-hit definitions for the uninitiated.
