Chris introduced the Strategy Cafe a process learned from the WorldCafe.  

 The goals were to 1. Promote media literacy 2. support ethics and standards (such as a social media press release) 3. share best practices.

Chris posits there are 7 roles for social media: 

  1. Transparency and Authenticity
  2. Talk “with” instead of “to”
  3. Can’t manage microsegments
  4. Participation is marketing
  5. Can’t control the message
  6. Listening is more important than talking
  7. Engagement is genuine

The Pew Interactive Study was mentioned – 60% of readers do not realize they are reading blogs.
