    This is a fantastic book for community management tactics on Twi

    This is a fantastic book for community management tactics on Twitter on Facebook, and gets very deep into the "how to" aspects of conversing with, and seeking out your audience. In addition, Weintraub and Litwinka cover many other critical aspects of community management such as setting up dashboards (I particularly like the detailed use of Outlook for RSS - a much overlooked tool that most marketers already have, and are not using), crisis management specific to key social platforms, social CRM metrics. There are also a ton of tools and social spaces listed in detail, to help community managers make an initial evaluation. I also particularly liked the detail of the "paid organic" aspect of some of the major networks like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. This book is definitely a "must have" for the beginning to advanced community manager, or the marketer who is looking for a fresh and up-to-date guide on the state on social community management.
