Recently, we discussed the evolution of Twitter and also FriendFeed as they mature into fully interactive conversation ecosystems.
In social media, you’ll most often hear references to the proverbial “conversation” that fuels the dynamic, two-way Web and earns those individuals and brands that invest in it wisely, increased social capital and authority.
Facebook issued a significant announcement that may solidify its platform as the primary dashboard for sharing, responding, and listening to those who comprise your social graph, regardless of network.

PEW Research released a new report that documents the increase in social networking activity among U.S.-based adults for both personal and professional relationships.

After all, we’re deluged with education, lessons, and insight from so many brilliant leaders and inspirational voices, that it’s practically impossible to retain and reference all that moved us when we’re moved on a minute-by-minute basis.
