Experiments in Social Search

I used a broad category word "photography" to see what my social circle has to say.
My connections are all coming from twitter and gmail with one really interesting exception: Dan Brickley - connected via Anders Conbere on flickr.
Seems like a good reason to use as many social networking sites as possible. With connected via another person,we experience more networking structural holes...maybe? I haven't read the book, but the concept has fascinated me.

Social search results take me to websites... great example of driving traffic from really long tail search words.

What are your experiments showing?

Creating a 2.0 Press Release

Tried and true principles need innovative applications. Would you agree that the goal is to keep elements of traditional marketing, the principles we know are universal and effective, and apply them in new forms. Pitch Engine is a great example of this but how many companies are in a position to utilize the service?

It is rare to find an organization that has digital assets organized in a manner to leverage for a 2.0 press release. Too much emphasis on Tweeting and not enough on creating content that is clear, compelling and news worthy.
