I was so looking forward to getting the Facebook IPO out of the way, and then splat, like a ripe tomato in the kisser, we have to learn that the underwriters might not have shared some pre-IPO information transparently. Enough already! Bankers appear to be tone deaf to the fallout from their gross behavior. If you want an historical comparison, I think you need to go all the way back to the Renaissance and the Borgia popes. But no matter. With Facebook's more or less successful public launch, I hope we can turn our attention to other areas of CRM and the front office.

Social media is slowly becoming not just a tool, but an integral part of how we do business. The more that companies strive to integrate social media into their marketing and sales activities, the easier it will be. A true social CRM will have all of the components of a traditional CRM, including reporting and analytics functionality. Once more companies realize the benefits of social media analytics and reporting, it will be a much easier sell. Companies have to stop thinking of social media as a separate tool, and start thinking of it as just a necessary part of doing business. Much like email, or having a website social media is just another way to gain brand exposure publicly (Facebook, Twitter) and privately (private online communities, social campaigns and lead generation activities, etc.).

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
