Quick reminder, I hope you'll join John Furrier and me for a CrowdBiz chat at 2pm Eastern TODAY.
https://www.crowdchat.net/crowdbiz

What topics would you like us to discuss? I'm eager to talk about start-ups and the crowd. Would love to hear from +Jeremiah Owyang  and +Shaun Abrahamson  on that. What else?  


According to Shaun Abrahamson:  growing trend in venture world to add community managers to manage outside community. curious who is doing a good job and what the communities are doing well.

also been following @yannig roth tracking of global brands use of crowds. year of year growth is happening, but its been a struggle to qork with agencies. how can creative crowd providers better work with agencies?

My topics:
One topic is the proliferation of many new social networks or platform that have a social component.. are social networks like web pages in the early days of the web..meaning more are popping up everyday.. there seems to be a navigation program and discovery issues.. Specifically if social is like the web (in the early days) and social media teams are like web teams in 90s - where are we on the spectrum of tooling and automation... I believe that social will be the new web like the web in the 90s..we all knew it would be huge but the web in the early days faced lots of the same pressures we see with social: i hear things like "where is the ROI", "can't take it seriously", "lets not allocate budget til we understand the business impact"..etc etc

Second topic: Social Business - where are we on the viability and execution of this concept.. who is doing social business and what the hell does it mean...

Does #Facebook  have a problem, or do #brands  have a problem?

There are a lot of #socialmedia  measurement tools out there now, but sometimes faulty thinking can take you to the wrong place even when you are using data. Take a look at this piece I wrote for The Next Web.

Social Media ROI is always a touchy subject. I understand, recognize and appreciate the need to tie efforts to business objectives like sales, but perhaps social media works better when viewed through a different lens: Return on Intelligence.
This post was originally published on WOMMA here. It comes from Rick Liebling, Head of Global Marketing, reach him on Twitter here: @RickLiebling. Whether you've been to one social media conference or 100, you're sure to have seen a panel talking about ROI – three letters that often strike fear ...

Hello! I'm Rick Liebling, currently an independent marketing consultant based in the NY/NJ area.

I've spent nearly 20 years in sports marketing, first within professional baseball, including a year with the NY Yankees, then supporting Fortune 500 brands in global sports sponsorship.  I've worked with MasterCard, Gillette and Diageo brands like Johnnie Walker and Guinness for on-site executions in Europe, South America, Asia, North America, the Caribbean and Middle East. I've been fortunate enough to work on and attend events like the FIFA World Cup, European Championships and UEFA Champions League, the Cricket World Cup and F1 races in Monaco, Brazil, Hungary and Germany among others.

I'm focused on helping brands connect with fans by utilizing some of the latest platforms and tools - things like crowdsourcing, hackathons, 2nd Screen and Gamification.  Looking forward to next week's #SportsConf

Oh, I am interested in learning from the perspective of the hackerspace (as opposed to the hackathon) itself. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Hear you tomorrow!

Always great to see +Grant McCracken talk culture. I wonder, what sort of insights we could glean from some sort of cross-tabulation of binge viewers and socialTV commenters? Are these the same people? Different? Are the shows that we binge watch and the shows we watch while engaging in a socialTV experience different?
Has binge watching changed the way we live our lives? Netflix and cultural anthropologist Grant McCracken recently found that 61 percent of streaming television users binge on their shows and 73 percent feel positive about this kind of viewing.
