Twitter Insights on Social Networks for CEA

Before our panel this morning, taking a turn from the pages of NewMediaJim, I tweeted a question for my friends on Twitter to see what they would want to tell the crowd at the Consumer Electronics Association Industry Forum.  We received some great responses.

My Question was: what do you want to tell the consumer electronics industry about social networking and social media?  Further clarified after Doug Haslam asked what help I was looking for to include: looking for insights to share on social networking that will help the executives here understand what’s important – twitter too…

My quote for the panel was “you don’t USE social networks, you join them” – which is an oversimplification of course, but I want to be deliberate about the language and the shift to collaboration and community…

The responses were great (especially my wife’s 😉
