I recently caught up with Neenz Faleafine, who has worked on a variety of political campaigns as a social media director and consultant. There’s so much talk about what social media can do for brands, but it’s just as effective in the political arena. Reputation management is even more critical there, so these lessons will definitely extrapolate to your business social marketing.

A total of 40 percent of all interaction on Facebook occurs in the News Feed, yet most brands experienced a 47 percent drop in reach in the past six months. How can you get your reach back?
The history of social networks is littered with stories of companies such as Friendster. Does Facebook have the staying power to remain relevant years from now? Ekaterina Walter, the author of Think Like Zuck: The Five Business Secrets of Facebook’s Improbably Brilliant CEO Mark Zuckerberg talked about Facebook’s future in a recent podcast for Duct Tape Marketing.
Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been one of the most-discussed figures of our time. Some people love him, some criticize him, but most just watching from the sidelines marvel at how a 19-year-old could become the 29th-richest person in the world (according to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index) by building a simple social program. Last week, I finished reading Think Like Zuck: The Five Business Secrets of Facebook’s Improbably Brilliant CEO Mark Zuckerberg by Ekaterina Walter and I found a lot of answers to that very question. So I sat down with her to talk about the book and Facebook in general.
