First off, let me make it clear up front so that there is no confusion: this is a project that I’m volunteering for.  I’m not getting paid to do it.  It is on my own time.  Second, it was written about in the news media months ago so this isn’t breaking news.

Are we good? Good. So I’m on this project and I was chosen to be a part of the social media team. We’re meeting in a couple of weeks, but before that happens we were given an assignment. I figured – it’s the social media team, why not use social media as a way to do the assignment?

The assignment was for me to look at my social networking habits – Facebook, Twitter, etc, and look at what got me to the people/organizations/conversations that I participate in most often – what value do they bring to me? What makes them appealing?

I have my own answers of course, but I’m just one person and what appeals to me won’t necessarily appeal to others. I figure most people in the group would have similar answers since we have so much in common – same backgrounds, same jobs, live in the same place, etc. But you guys are such a broad spectrum and could offer much more insight!

So, I pose the question to you. There are no right or wrong answers and your help is greatly appreciated.
