I was able to meet with Esther Lim, Principle of Interactive Services at Crimson Consulting Group in SF. She’s been working with social media before that term existed, (or Tim O’reilly) and I had the chance to ask her how things have changed. I often say that we’re in year 3 of 10 years of growth for this industry, although in certain areas saturation and normalization of these new communications styles occur faster.

  • Find out how online discussions happened before that term social media existed
  • Moving forward to 2008, she discusses how companies have changed their attitudes, and what’s driving adoption
  • Terms that she thinks are over hyped
  • Typical pitfalls that companies fall for
