Great list. Another good URL shortener is tr.im (http://tr.im.com).

Thank you so much for sharing such an interesting piece on Social Media Marketing which is definitely worth sharing.I am working in a leading Search & Social Media marketing firm called Position2 Inc.and your article is really helpful for me.

Thanks for your comment Michael! You're righta about tr.im being a good (and popular) URL shortener. It was actually #5 on my list of URL shorteners. I needed to drop it to hold the list to the 'top 100' and the free directory listings took precedence.

thanks for the info! just one point - google no longers allows uploading of videos, only watching. since they bought youtube, google is no longer allowing uploades :(

This is a great list, thanks for sharing.

I'd also recommend eCrowds, which provides blogs, posting of videos, b2b social networks, and Twitter tools (of the list above).

eCrowds is a SaaS content, community, and SEO management system that is being offered for free in 2009: http://www.eCrowds.com

Great links , on your Question on Web 3.0 is to ? as Web 2.0 is to social media , i think we are moving towards Unified communications and to make this easily usable accross the globe Web 3.0 is going to play a major role.

unified communications, the ability to unify live and passive forms of communications (office phone, cell phone, email, voice mail, etc.) to direct important people to the live person wherever he or she may be

Question: Web 3.0 is to ? as Web 2.0 is to social media...

Answer: semantic search

I have a great page rank checker http://www.getranking.info

Works better than the one you listed.

really appreciated

I justt add Viadeo (www.viadeo.com), is the second biggest professional network.

Good suggestion, I did a little research on Viadeo and it passed the evaluation. It hasn't gotten much traction in the U.S. yet, but due to its international reach it certainly qualifies. Thanks for your feedback!

Thanks for Sharing!

Great Information on some of the top Free Social Media Resources!
Thanks for the Post presentations info...

Thanks for the compilation!

Great roadmap! However, consider a z-axis. The z-axis would 'pull' content from multiple sources on your existing x and y-axis, combining them with internal marketing material, then 'pushing' the resulting as part of a marketing campaign (geoIP, market or time based). There are marketing platforms such as SmartSymbols Marketing Platform that already facilitate this. So, a z-axis would be most helpful. For example; Europe consumers don't do much with Twitter, so a geoIP marketing campaign for Europe using Twitter would be bad. Linkedin is more business related, so a marketing campaign for an individual or corporation using Linkedin is good.

Thank you! B2B Social Media/Viral marketing has been extremely rewarding using the right resources and when done correctly.
