“What is your favorite social networking group to use and why?”
I posted this question to my network on LinkedIn. To say I was somewhat shocked at the responses is an understatement.

I completely disagree as do many of my colleagues who are masterfully utilizing their social media efforts.

The fact is, more and more people are using various online social networks and forms of social media such as blogging, social media news releases, video trailers, and podcasts to gain market reach, visibility and increase revenues.
