The Essential Guide to Social Media Translated into French

Francois Ramaget of Aspect Consulting translated The Essential Guide to Social Media into French and has made it available as a free download here. Thank you Francois!

The Essential Guide to Social Media is a “quick start” overview of how to listen and participate in social media and new media marketing.

Last year, Yuri Aksyonov translated The Social Media Manifesto into Russian. You can find it here.

If you haven’t already had a chance, be sure to read, The Art of Conversation – It’s About Listening Not Marketing.

    I read The Essential Guide to Social Media and it was interesting. Do you know jamespot ? It’s a social network which allow users to share their favorite articles found on the Internet with their friends. I think it could have been quoted in your guide. Maybe in the next release !
