My thoughts are that people connect with people. Its a little bit artificial having a conversation with an 'organisation'. If I went into an enquiry centre or called a company, I'd speak with a person. And I could talk with…"
"yikes- that sounds like a lot of constant maintenance to keep up with FB and a lot of room for leaks and errors. My first thought is that all admins would have to crank their privacy settings up to the max, but not sure you can really make people do…"

"As Annette said, it depends on why you're doing it. What are the problems that need to be solved, and what are the outcomes that can be measured? I'm planning to switch to a CMS from not having one this coming year, and most of our issues…"
"For our global header nav, I've been tracking every click as an event in Google Analytics for several months. It's pretty clear now which links are popular and which are being ignored. I also use Crazy Egg to see clicks on the current…"
