    • Lisa: Thanks for the shout to BizSugar! I think it will take a long time before the main brands have incorporated Twitter as a channel for customer engagement. I see positive signs on the North American market. I have a hard time to find great business cases in Scandinavia.

      Talking about brands and social media engagement, the other day I listened, watched and participated (by writing comments in the chat feature on Go To Webinar) in Chris Brogan’s webinar, Brand Yourself.

      All the Best,
