The power of social media and online forums

We all have heard about Social Media and how powerful it is supposed to be. How many of us really get it? Why is it so powerful?

Ive been fortunate to be heavily involved with and its online member forums over the past six months as a moderator. I’m interacting with the readers on a daily basis through a wide variety of topics. Some topics get a lot of attention others don’t and eventually die off into the massive database archives. It is such a fascinating world of like-minded people, they all love golf, sport in general, and love to chat about it in this very popular online community.
