The Future of Social Media: Being Everywhere (a Steve Rubel Interview)
By Michael Stelzner
Published January 13, 2010
In this video I interview Steve Rubel, Senior Vice President at Edelman Digital. Steve advises some of the biggest names in the world, such as Dannon, Hewlett Packard, Pepsi and Microsoft, on social media.
Watch this video to pick up some of the nuggets of social media advice he gives his clients. One valuable tip Steve gives is about “shared mutual gain” and what it means. Steve also explains why he quit blogging.
You will also learn why Steve believes digital is mandatory and not optional. And here are a few other takeaways:
- Why you need to have a presence on all social networks where your customers are spending time.
- How to use mixed messages to tailor your stories to different venues.
- How to measure social media metrics.
- Why the different vectors of reach, engagement and reputation lead to trust.
- Why it’s important to understand people & understand business.
What are your takeaways? Do you agree that blogging is old? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.

You see for about the last two years I have been trying to launch an online business and I've always had an excuse for why I couldn't do it. I was focused on my other business (which never made much money), I didn't have the right equipment, I didn't have the right software, I didn't have the knowledge, blah, blah, blah.
Let me tell you what I have now and you see if I have any reason to complain:

I sit in front of the television with a laptop but I know that is not normal. The average American does not have a 2nd(laptop) or 3rd(smartphone) screen in front of them while watching TV. Television programs have been trying to get viewers to this for a few years now by asking you to text a message to a short code to get show updates or play along with some aspect of the show(Fox's 24 and American Idol voting come to mind). The iPad now opens up options for true interactivity during a show.
Think of all the possibilities:

I'm tired of people relying on the ignorance of the public at large to spread rumor, spin the truth, and outright lie. I saw the tweet below and then went to watch the video it referenced.

I think it all started when I discovered Tim Ferris and his smash hit The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich. Later I read X Marks the Spot (1st edition) and I knew that this was something I needed to do.

Now the LORD had said to Abram:
“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.”

My wife and I went together to drop our daughter off at school. Let me first preface this by saying our daughter is in first grade and we rarely ever go together to drop her off.

My blogging was really consistent until those services came along. I also started and closed a few other blogs on a variety of interest.
