Okay for the Beginner Feb. 19 2012
By CornerstoneKat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had included this book in my 2012 Book Goals because I understood that it was a quick read, helpful in regards to learning which social media platforms would be best for me as a blogger, and informative on how I could use those platforms to promote my blog. In each of those ways, I suppose this book did not disappoint.

The Gratton's introduce several of the popular social media forms out there: Facebook, Twitter,YouTube, LinkedIn and Foursquare. They also touch upon StumbleUpon, Digg, and several social media tracking systems including TweetDeck, PeerIndex, and Sprout Social. However, much of what they share is geared toward the social media beginner so if you've had any experience with these social media forms at all then this book is probably not for you. Even so, I did happen to fill two large post-it notes with ideas which I look forward to implementing over the next few months.

With a total of 194 pages, many with medium to large fonts, this book is a breeze to read through in a couple of hours. The Gratton's use common every day language to explain several technical aspects of these social media platforms, making it easier to understand how to start using these media forms as well as why you might want to use to them in your business.

One major disappoint I found in this book was the chapter placement. For instance, in Chapter 1, they introduce 3 social media gurus that they don't expound on until Chapter 20 when they interview 5 social media gurus (not 3) again repeating the bios found in Chapter 1. Another example would be how they chose jump back and forth between media forms. Chapters 3-7 are devoted to introducing each media form and how to get started within that platform, but you have to wait until Chapter 10 and beyond to learn how to use each platform to your advantage and interact like a pro. Only when they talk about blogging do they group the introduction and implementation chapters together. They are often saying "if you can't wait to get started, you can skip to it right now." Why didn't they just group these chapters together to start with? It would have saved a lot of jumping around.

Conclusion: If you are just starting out in the social media world, this book is worth the read. If you have been toiling with social media for awhile, I might suggest just reading the help section of each platform instead.

There are lots of books out there about how to succeed with social media in the corporate world, but this one is targeted to the underserved small business community. It's a practical, how-to guide packed with lots of interesting visual examples. I've recommended it to all my friends and social media contacts who own or work at small businesses.
