One of the highlights of my otherwise insanely busy week was spending a small window of time chatting it up with Geoff Livingston on his Buzz Bin podcast. Geoff, in addition to being one of my favorite bloggers, is the author of "Now is Gone", a primer on new media for executives and entrepreneurs.
We had a great conversation about:
- The controversy around social media "shock jock" Loren Feldman's antics that cost him his Verizon deal
- Microblogging wars and the community fragmentation that occurs
- How blogs and social networks can co-exist in terms of corporate social networking
- Why users shouldn't feel over-evangelized into using every social network -- find the one that fits
