So today I sat in on a web-inar like a seminar online. It was called Mining the Blogosphere: It's a Whole New World of Marketing.
I basically knew all of the things they talked about- they just put it into good words.
"Those online conversations--chatty, impassioned, diary-like--provide a new source of insight for companies to strengthen their brand, gain insights for product development, monitor product launches, and determine marketing campaign effectiveness."
So everytime we talk about our favorite things- there are now company's that report back to 'the man.'
I guess that is what we get for publishing our diaries online.
Here are some more fun facts on blogging...
