One graphic I found interesting was this one:-
I was especially taken with this comment:-
“The most useful social media resource is the webinars. I feel that they offer the most, don’t demand that I travel, spend a lot of money, or even make a huge commitment of time. They are usually well focused on a topic and therefore don’t waste my time with a lot of unrelated topics.”
Personally I find podcasts and webinars very useful, especially when you can download and listen at your convenience.
The ratings are very interesting and show a clear preference at present for webinars, podcasts.
This may call into question whether time spent on LinkedIn and Facebook is time well spent>
Anyway my first comment on this material. The Business.com site has what looks like quite a lot of useful material, though one needs to make allowance perhaps for a US centric focus.
