Bolaji's write up on the blurred social media lines is well presented. One way to keep things in the right buckets topically speaking is through Linked In groups. Whether you join one or start one, these forums are ideal for anyone interested in more segmented social media communication.
Excellent point. I actually recently watched an old conference screencast by Rand Fishkin, Founder of SEOMoz. He was stating that with the latest Google updates, they have begun to take a real look at the SM space and put preference on the SM data and interactions. For example, if I Like something on FB or uprank on Reddit, those factors will have an effect on other's search queries, independent of the organic SEO and marketing dollars pumped in.
Bolaji, The only instances I can think of are generally people sending out spam or links to viruses. Even then it is usually just complaints on pages and not directing them at the sites administrators. I agree with you that most people just accept it and move on.
Jennifer, Have you had a situation where anyone has complained about postings to social media sites that they believe is inappropriate or was directed at the wrong audience? I suspect most people shrug this off.
I think the line between business and personal in regards to social media is completely blurred. Even if you don't post things about work or particular companies who are promoting products, chances are some "friends" are doing it and you will see some of it posted on your page. At this point Facebook is a huge outlet for businesses looking to bring in customers. I know my husband will sometimes post a link to some sports articles that he has written on our Facebook page for friends to read, that in turn brings more traffic to the website.
Kunmi, I don’t know the reason for why nobody is considering Google+ at this point of time. Before FB and Linkedin, orkut played a vital role in social networking space, especially in personal and professional circle.
Face book and LinkedIn are similar in fractional part but they perform different roles. Facebook is more into conncecting all available people that can log in and open an account but LinkedIn is geared towards the professionals accross the board. It is growing everyday and also growing fast!

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
