    Really interesting findings. Comment #3 explains why I use social media. It’s a fantastic way to find interesting news, people, and resources that would be nearly impossible to find otherwise.

    Hi everyone – very glad you like the report. We’ve recently released several more reports from this same data set that cover certain topics in more detail. These are:

    “2009 B2B Social Media Benchmarking Report” – detailed look at the most relevant results for B2B marketers. http://www.business.com/info/b2b-social-media-benchmark-study

    “Engaging Small Business Decision Makers Through Social Media” – for those marketing to small business, this report provides more in-depth review of the social media resources small business leaders turn to for business information. http://www.business.com/info/engaging-small-business-through-social-media.

    “Social Media Best Practices: Question & Answer Forums” – since opinions differ so widely about whether Q&A forums like LinkedIn Answers, Yahoo! Answers, Business.com Answers or others are great ways to connect with your target audience or a waste of time, we combined insights from over 1,100 Q&A users and over 800 companies using Q&A forums to generate best practice advice for getting the most out of Q&A forum participation. http://www.business.com/info/social-media-best-practices-q-and-a.

    We’re working on several more reports for Q1 as well and will announce on Twitter (http://twitter.com/B2BOnlineMktg) when these are ready.
