    This is some fantastic adivse and I have experienced it personally, I recently started doing the social media marketing for a company and have found that with consistency and posting information and interesting facts that there's has been a massive response with a 1200% increase in page views and user interaction. Thank you for the additional insights.

    If politicians will only speak "openly" when they know lickspittle "journalists" won't report what they say, then neither "politicians" nor "journalists" are of any use to me and I'll stick with the internet. BTW, howzat coverage of "Fast and Furious" coming along?
