The newly revised and updated guide to the social media revolution!

Welcome to the world of Socialnomics-where consumers and the societies they create online have profound effects on our economy and the businesses that operate within it. Online word of mouth, social search, social commerce, and the influence of peer groups are making traditional marketing strategies obsolete. As a result, we no longer have a choice on whether we do social media; the question is how well we do it.

Join Erik Qualman in Socialnomics for a fascinating look at the business implications of social media, and tap its considerable power to increase sales, cut marketing costs, and communicate directly with consumers.

This book was on a social media course recommended reading list (Algonquin College), so I had high hopes for it. These were soon dashed.

Don't get me wrong, author Erik Qualman has some good ideas about the social media phenomenon, but these could have been better covered in a blog (and they have been better covered by similar books eg. Groundswell).

Qualman's main obstacle is his inability to write coherently.

Luckily, you don't have to wade through this morass of a book. Extraordinarily, Qualman provides summaries of each chapter in the table of contents. Thank goodness for small mercies -LP
