Congratulations Mr.President Loved Your Acceptance Tweet Today!!!

President Obama accepted  the election victory with a tweet today.

Note: Tweets at @BarackObama are by Obama team but the one by the President are signed with - bo

Here are my favorites tweets and facebook updates as we celebrated the election results today.

 This funny Tweet was how I found Obama Won from @! (Screengrab from her blog)

While he waited, Obama posted a Thank You message on BarackObama.com (Twitter, then Web)

My Favorite is a quick Limerick from Jeannie on my Facebook Feed.

For those who complain about Tweets being limited to 140 characters, checkout the victory excitement in even fewer characters!

Below is THE fastest ReTweeted Tweet in Twitter history (over Justin Beiber's past record)
My personal favorite is a spontaneous Geeky Tweet by Kim.

How can this election results be complete without a Binder full of Women!

Loving the iPhone is still cool

I have been part of the amazing experience of geek innovation at Iosdevcamp hosted at eBay for the fourth year in a row.

The iosdevcamp is an intense  community driven event with 500 developers coming together to pitch ideas and form teams and build and launch 70 new IOS Apps on Sunday night. 

All the hardwork is done by the volunteer team lead by Dom, Raven and Christopher and Jennifer

This year  I  organized a girls mentoring program from eBay Women in Technology. 

Here is the full story (on ebayinkblog) and some video of the event.

The eWIT girls mentoring Montage bringing girls 5 to 15 to innovate and launch apps and win awards.

You can get a feel for the amazing entrepreneurial energy and ideas as they were developed on Day 2 here

I am happy with the eBay Women mentoring program and how the young girls inspired us.

I am not sure what I love more - Iphone community, entrepreneurial energy, tech innovation, community helping each other.

Top 3 of 5 Metrics to Measure Social Business Success

Businesses are struggling with how to evaluate the effectiveness of their social media campaigns and several social media activities. Currently, most companies are using a variety of metrics to measure diverse campaigns across multiple departments.  There are five metrics that accurately measure success in terms of ROI and revenues from social media for all enterprises, both big and small, B2B and consumer web, and across multiple geographies.

I recently blogged on Gigaom about 3 of the 5 metrics to measure Business success. 

I have outlined the issue with measuring this metric and interviewed some industry expert on what is the best practice today to arrive at each metric.

I need your valuable input now!

I am beginning the part 2 blog to outline the remaining two metrics.

I find that social media permeates businesses across all channels and we all have our view of it from our different corporate functions. In the end we all make money for our businesses while serving our customers and staying within ethical boundaries of the company and our own values.

So I find it fascinating at the discussions I got on the blog comments and Twitter on what people think about the remaining two metrics.

 Read on and let me know what your thoughts are about what the other Top 2 metrics should be.

Also, let me know if you or someone you know should be interviewed for the Part 2 blog post.
