Good primer on social media

In “If I Started Today,” Chris Brogan offers a succint introduction to social media and social networking. Many of his ideas will be useful for class assignments or discussion starters. It’s worthwhile assigned reading if only for this passage:

Listening is my first move in starting to understand social media. That means this: go and read the blogs that are out there. Read from different genres. Go visit Twitter.com and more importantly search.twitter.com, and see what people are saying. Read comments on people’s blogs and see which ones seem to get any response. Search using Google and Technorati.com, and start listening to conversations that are out there.
