Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

This is a great article that was brought to my attention on LinkedIn through @GuyKawasaki. A good portion of the information in this article was the kind of thing we talked about in my graduate school social media class, taught by Dr. Andrew Klobucar. Amongst the topics we spoke of was the role of social media in information dissemination, and the role of "netizens". Good stuff!
