Social media is…

…cake. Sort of. John Ounpuu made an interesting comment the other day that I re-tweeted:

Social is not a new type of icing. It's a new way of thinking about your cake.

I then got a number of good responses. From Travis:

Actually, social is a new way of deciding what to make -- as Marie Antoinette found, the people might not want to eat cake.

And then from Justin:

Social is a cake fight. Everyone has a cake, and they're all throwing it at each other and trying to dodge.

Fun stuff, and a good excuse to make a summary blog post.
