Social Media - ROI

"Dell's Outlet on Twitter earned $9 million in sales."
This has always been quoted when people talk about Social Media ROI. Where are the other success stories. Are there other stories?

Is Twitter the best tool to distribute coupons?

From what i understand and believe, Social Media is not for all businesses. And calculating ROI?
How do you do it? Calculating the clicks, the page views, ... and everything else possible. How do you do it?

When anything gets hyped up too much and when everyone starts to talk about the same thing. It is probably the first sign that we are going to soon stop talking about it.

How do i know what facebook makes through its advertising?

Do they really click the ads on the side?

Brand communication, listen to the customers, share more than you promote, there are many watching your conversation, ... and many more..

Is it all worth the time and money invested?
What are the businesses that really benefit from social media?
Who are the ones who will never have a ROI?
where are the answers?

every _l_ thing in life

Strange thoughts that started storming my brain cells today. Every fucking thing in life that happens, especially the bad things. We accept finally and move on with it.

Acceptance is bull shit. An mechanism which we learn to apply to every single thing in life. "Moving on" "Everything is for good" Bull shit !!

Was recently reading about the k├╝bler-ross - five stages of grief
What does it really prove ?
We suck most of our lives. And we all are same.

We need hopes and reasons all the time. Would love to be in a world where this model doesn't work. Probably it would be chaos. But it would be surely different. Will try hard to destroy this mechanism and see how life unwinds.

Google Wave

Checked my gmail on my N70 to find invitation to try out Google Wave. WOOWWWWWWWWWWWW..
that's what i thought first. Pulled myself off from Saturday night deep sleep :D to start my desktop.

First take on Wave, nothing wonderful.
Questions that came to my mind ?
hmmm.. Is it another social networking site branded differently ?
yes, is my personal answer. If you think otherwise, do comment.

So far, there is nothing much you can do with Wave.
Some features(waves) like map application is muted/under construction.

Then, i thought i should give my feedback. I don't understand what the guys who created the feedback form thought about users. Do something guys, We don't like filling big forms. Do something here!!

I believe many are trying out wave; for those who want to see how it looks like, check out the screen shot

Traffic signal ; life

Today morning, i had a very nice experience driving bike. Almost 5 traffic signals gave green to me in a 5 km road stretch. I never had to stop; First i would see the red vehicles stopped 100m ahead of me. As i would drove near, green would flash.

Something struck me hard. In this i found an irony with life. Sometimes all life gives us is a red, but it is only temporary. Sometimes you may get all green; then again red does come sometimes. Crossing when it is red on the road can be risky (to others on road). With life, its more interesting to pass through when it is all red. Obstacles make life interesting. If there are no obstacles,/levels in a game; it isn't game then.

LIFE IS GAME; its more FUN with obstacles.
