Business Value of Social Networking

Saw a very interesting video where Seth Godin talks about how useful social media is to businesses. Even though the use of social media like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn is growing exponentially, there is a raging debate about measuring its ROI.

I use LinkedIn and Twitter quite a lot in my online networking and sure, I’ve grown my network in a short period of time. But like many b-to-b marketers, I’m not sure how it has impacted my business. So, I’m leaning more towards Seth’s point of view.

Take a look at this video and decide for yourself. After all, when Seth Godin speaks, people listen.
