Welcome to the Social Age.We humans are social down to our very core; social is not just what we do, it’s what we are. Connecting and communicating; sharing ideas, news, tips and sometimes warnings; making introductions; growing our influence. That’s all we’ve ever done.

At first, of course, connections were limited to the confines of our village. … Through social, you — and your customers, employees, vendors, and even your competitors — are all just one or two social connections from each other.

In the Social Age: Empowerment isn’t optional

… The Social Age isn’t for sissies. For many, this transition won’t be easy.
