"Social media is everywhere you go and it is here to stay! But are you ready for it? Social media is a powerful means to achieve success in your businesses. But, like all communication mediums, social media has attributes that need to be tapped in specific and relevant situations. It can help you build a reputation and it is useful in crisis communication. But, at the same time, if you don’t know what you are doing it can be a waste of time and can create a crisis situation too. Businesses, news organisations and governments have started developing social-media policies and guidelines for its proper use. This book attempts to put together varied aspects of social media, focusing on its tremendous potential for the growth of a business and its appropriate and legal use. With real-world examples of guiding principles of big companies, and an in-depth coverage of the most-happening social networks, this is a great read for business leaders, policy makers and, of course, students of communication.

And Rob Fuggetta has given us the ultimate guidebook to brand advocacy. Simple, clear, and filled with practical advice, this book shows you how to turn your enthusiastic customers into a powerful Brand Army." —PORTER GALE, former Vice President of Marketing, Virgin America "In an era of connected consumerism, advocacy puts the word in word of mouth. Nothing is more authentic or effective. This book shows you exactly how to find and engage your advocates." —BRIAN SOLIS, Principal Analyst, Altimeter Group, and author, The End of Business as Usual "Inspiring Advocates is one of Method's seven obsessions. Get this book and be inspired. Highly recommended!" —ERIC RYAN, Cofounder, Method "Fuggetta's equation for building great brands in the social media age is proven and powerful. Every hotel marketer should read this book." —CHIP CONLEY, Founder, Joie De Vivre Hospitality, and author, Emotional Equations "Brand Advocates is a book every public relations professional should read. It's the definitive guide to authentic advocacy." —AEDHMAR HYNES, Chief Executive Officer, Text 100 Public Relations "Companies aren't trusted, brands aren't trusted, and nor are your executives. People trust each other, and now they have the tools to communicate with each other using social technologies and mobile, with or without brands involved. As a result, trust has shifted to the participants. Many brands, knowing their credibility has diminished, rely on advocacy programs where trusted members of the community are given a platform and encouraged to speak. Fuggetta shows you exactly how to create an advocacy program that empowers your trusted Advocates." —JEREMIAH OWYANG, Partner, Altimeter Group
