Here's a general question for the community...social business is fast becoming the way we should be doing business. And the market place is being flooded with so called "social business consultants" who state they can help companies with the transformation process.

But how can a small-medium business distinguish between those consultants that truly can deliver for them and those that just talk a good game?

A social business consultant who is truly good at what they do, will have a portfolio of work they have done, with examples of how they have helped companies improve.

This is going to be a VERY interesting debate (check out the pre-reading blog post !!!).
 
This show on Social Etiquette of a Community Manager will have the 'Through The Firewall' panellists discuss and debate how the role of a community manager has evolved with the explosion of social media. It will also be looking at how community manager's should be engaging with consumers / customers and providing a service that befits the Brand.

Would you hire a Community Manager that treated your Brand like this?

+David Christopher, I'm surprised and saddened by this instance of community management. I'm surprised PC Advisor has let it continue. I wonder if there will be any type of recourse or retraction of these comments in the future?

Hi +David Christopher, I'm currently reading for my Masters in IS Management and Innovation from Warwick Business School and am working on my dissertation which is concerned with the collaborative capabilities of social media within a business context. Would you be interested in discussing my research with you further? 

Also, I am actively seeking a job in London starting in September (upon completion of my MSc) preferably within the social media sphere. The job posted above or something similar would definitely be of interest to me. 

Let me know what you think

Is it possible to disassociate your personal profile from your work one when using social media or are we all Brand Ambassadors?
 
This show on Are ALL Employees Brand Ambassadors? will have the 'Through The Firewall' panellists discuss and debate how the role of employees in the social world we now live and if what we say on social media are the views of the company we work for even if our profile stipulates that it is not. We'll also be discussing that whilst it is technically possible to separate work and personal profiles on social media platforms, do people who engage with us really see that distinction.

Style over substance?
 
We're curious what everyone thinks of this new Microsoft initiative, The Worldwide Water Cooler, focused on social tools in the workplace. http://www.theworldwidewatercooler.com/

The Social Media Influence Conference is back again in London on June 13th run by +matthew yeomans. This is certainly one of the better social conferences I have been to and highly recommend it.

How would you define the characteristic differences between a Social Business process, a framework and a methodology?
