The B4 List (Best Big Business Blogs) 3/18/09

Posted by Chris Kieff on March 18th, 2009

Welcome to the inaugural B4 List.  Here we have gathered a list of the best blogging sources for people involved in Social Media at the enterprise level.  That’s because many of us who work for large companies have a different set of problems than those who may work for smaller organizations.

The purpose of this list is give those of us in larger companies concerned with social networking a place to go to find ideas and discussion about the issues we face.  Therefore we decided not to make this a ranking of best to worst, but rather a list of resources.  So position on this list only reflects the alphabetical order of the name of the website and nothing more.

We are going to continually update this list, so if you don’t see your favorite big business blog here, please contact us via the comments and let us know.

Top Social Media Blogs for Big Business

Posted by Chris Kieff on March 2nd, 2009

There are lists of the  best blogs, the best blogs on social media, and best blogs for Small and Medium Sized Busiensses. 

But what if you are one of the hundreds of thousands of social media trail blazers in a large corporation searching for help, guidance and resouces?  The problems of the enterprise are in many ways unique compared to those of smaller organizations.  And starting a social media outreach effort in an enterprise is a very different proposition compared to starting it in a smaller business.
