DESCRIPTIONDecoding Digital Friends in 2010 Robert Barnard, CEO Decode Marketers around the world are keen to utilize social networks to build better, deeper relationships, and to maximize marketing and communications budgets. Still, many are making decisions that are uninformed or based on unproven theories and popular perceptions. To get more value from their social media investments companies need knowledge in three main areas.

Click to edit Master subtitle style Decode 2010 firstname.lastname@example.org Page 15 Sharing motivated either by a political (small p) or civic cause or due to a caring tendency I can help educate those that see my profile on things they would have otherwise known nothing about. And, if all they read is the title of the article, they know just a little bit more and their horizons are broadened. I really like passing on positive stuff makes me feel warm/fuzzy. Rating Those who rate tend to like immediate feedback from others and are motivated by being part of a collective. I'm definitely a rater as I always like to answer those quick little side surveys to see where I stack up with everyone else on the topic/subject; always with the tweets for something; don't have time to be a commentator with the back and forth online. I'm a rater, I can express my opinion in a easier and more sleeker way than commenting. 16.
