"Larry Weber clearly grasps the impact of ubiquitous social technology on companies the unprecedented opportunities as well as the challenges. Companies that understand this new reality, and are building a comprehensive digital strategy to benefit from it, are already differentiating themselves from their peers. Take advantage of his foresight to make sure that your company is capitalizing on this new source of competitive advantage."
Dr. JAMES CASH, Emeritus James E. Robison Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

"Once again, Larry Weber takes the highly complex and dynamic digital world and gives a useful and practical guide for making it become an important part of your business . . . as it should be. As we all encounter the many impacts that digital media, social networking, and digital communities are having on our businesses, make sure you access his keen thinking."
MARK NUNNELLY, Managing Director, Bain Capital
"Weber really gets that social media is a lot more than a set of tools that people use to chat with their friends and family. Those conversations are valuable sources of market intelligence, inputs into product and service development, and sources of employee recruitment and, ultimately, lead to competitive advantage. At TripAdvisor, we live and breathe this stuff, as social media has been the foundation of the company. Everywhere is a must–read for business."
STEPHEN KAUFER, founder, President, and CEO, TripAdvisor
