I agree that social media strategies need to be developed, often there is the possibility of doing a lot of things online but not really in a manner that reaps maximum benefit.

My ProExtender review site
This may seem like an old question to some but I haven’t been able to find an answer or opinion. Do links from Facebook etc. have any kind of affect on SEO? I assume not beCAuse otherwise everybody would just set up hundreds of profiles linking back to their sites and therefore this would constitute link farming to some degree?
Loving this informATIon from the blogs.
Wonderful articles, I love this line..
“If You want to create and maintain an active presence on MySpace and Facebook, it should be beCAuse You have identified that Your current and potential customers are there, not beCAuse ‘everyone else is doing it”
I know too many people who do get CAught up on it and not taking the ROI factor, especially time it takes to see if this is actually worth pursuing. Even if it does bring You business, is it taking away from other aspects that bring You more business.. prioritize!!
I know someday I will venture out into the wild world of web 2.0, but for right now, it would take away from my other more productive activities.
