Top Customer Reviews
It was also interesting to see what people were saying about services like Bit.ly and Dropbox back in 2009 - the authors gave the then-fledgling services a glowing review and predicted great things for them in the future. It's now the future, and they're both doing great things.
Also interesting was a mention of Ari Herzog, a digital marketer who contributed his opinion when the authors were carrying out research over Twitter - I've recently written a guest-post for his blog, and so it was cool to come across him in the manuscript.
It's weird how, in the world of social media, everyone is interconnected - I can generally tell whether a social media book is going to be worth reading if I've heard of the authors in advance. I must admit, I'd never heard of any of the three authors beforehand, but I'll be keeping my eye on Laura in particular - at the time of the book's creation, she was working on a new site called OneForty.com, a site which I was familiar with. While writing this review, I did a bit of stalking, and I discovered that Laura now works for HubSpot. Cool!

Very good, explanatory book. Answered many questions. very good purchasePublished on 4 Nov. 2014 by Casper
Book was very out-of-date. The version of Twitter it talked about bore very little resemblance to the version I downloaded.Published on 11 July 2014 by MR D MCGILL
