  3. Excellent point that Elyse made about ‘talking WITH’ rather than o”” target audiences.Social Networks (socNets) have an advantage over 1:1 communications between a vendor and its customers, partners and service providers in that socNets enable interactions among target audiences. Like a focus group, they provide a way to crowd-source market intelligence.The vendor can gain unexpected information about how its target audiences perceive and structure problems, and their desired solutions. The audiences can collaboratively propose solutions as well as the roles of each audience in their implementations.”
