    I know I'm late (from holiday) but just my five cents:


    I kind of like Roland's "Social Media Newsroom" (and how to target/reach all FB, LinkedIn and Twitter followers through it)

    Perhaps a modification of 9: what kind of viral campaigns (if any) would be suitable/successful in our community?
