Wow, I know I’m a day or two late, but this post from Chris Brogan ties in nicely with the conversation that’s been happening here over the past couple of days. An excerpt:
What the social web gives us are tools. How we choose to use these tools is up to us. Are people trustworthy? Does a blog decide that? Are people sell-outs? Does a blog suggest they are not?
We demonstrate by our actions and by whatever trails we’ve left across the web whether we should be considered trustworthy. We attempt to discern trust and belief in people by how they appear and act in context. We do our homework (some of us). We look beyond the immediate. We observe.
Read the Full Post here as he makes some great points about how business fits into social media and blogging.
While I’m at it, if you haven’t signed up for Chris’ Newsletter, I’d HIGHLY suggest it. You’ll get some great tips and insight on social media that you won’t see on his blog.
