Iâm Teresa Morrow, Founder of Key Business Partners, LLC and I work with authors and writers by managing their online promotion. As part of my job I read a lot of books (and I love to read anyway!). I am here to offer a weekly post about one book author I am working with and one book I have put on my reading list. This week I will be highlighting ‘Happy about the Career Alphabet’. and ‘Socialnomics’ by Eric Qualman. The books will cover topics such as social media (Facebook and Twitter), organization, career building, networking, writing, self development and inspiration.

Now I would like to highlight a book on my “review” reading list–Socialnomics.
Here is some great information that Eric shared on Amazon about the book:
A fascinating, research-based look at the impact of social media on businesses and consumers around the world, and what’s in store for the future
Social Media. You’ve heard the term, even if you don’t use the tools. But just how big has social media become? Social media has officially surpassed pornography as the top activity on the Internet. People would rather give up their e-mail than their social network. It is so powerful that it is causing a macro shift in the way we live and conduct business. Socialnomics charts this shift from the forefront.
Brands can now be strengthened or destroyed by the use of social media. Online networking sites are being used as giant, free focus groups. Advertising is less effective at influencing consumers than the opinions of their peers. If you aren’t using social media in your business strategy, you are already behind your competition.
