      I think Latin America is super hot for Social Business!! The culture is perfect for success. What are you seeing?

  2. Hi Sandy
    Great presentation thank you – it’s so fascinating seeing China EXPLODE in their use of social (and India and Russia too) We just had CeBIT in Australia where I didn’t actually see as many delegates from China this year as I did last year – that may be due to the focus being on more business solutions than consumer at Sydney’s CeBIT though.

    I presented at CeBIT Australia on how we use social technologies here at my company in Australia to consistently double the size of our customer base every year. I hope you and your readers find it interesting:

    Oh and say hello to Steve Newman from me – we worked closely together “back in the day” and I remember meeting you at Teradata Partners in Seattle then too! 🙂

    Let me know when you are in Australia next – I know the IBM Collaboration Solutions team quite well here and it would be good to catch up with you.

      Tony .. I’d love to connect next time I am there. I think my next AP trip is to Singapore, Japan, and India. I have a great team there though! Sandy

  3. Great post. In order to connect globally it might be important leveraging more than one social network… Its clearly not just Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin.

  4. Reblogged this on Social Blog and commented:
    Becoming a global social business, is not just about Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter, there is more, great global insight!
