    1. Really enjoyed this episode. I guess I should listen to the others, too!

      Gary, I particularly like your use of the word “amplify” to describe the value of social media. I use it often to describe how Twitter amplifies blog content and how the two cross-pollinate.

      As was emphasized by all speakers on this podcast, there has to be existing content –preferably high quality content–to get value from amplification. So, companies should have a solid underlying media strategy before they jump into a social media campaign. In healthcare, where I spend most of my time now, I observe hospitals trying to establish social media programs when they have weak or non-existent content strategies. They need to ask themselves what they’re amplifying and if they don’t have a good answer, I suggest they focus on building the foundational message first.

      OTOH, for publishers with quality content, they’re missing out if they’re not taking advantage of social media amplification.
