Awesome article Noman!
You really nailed the things that are important to every business owner - online and offline. Even those business owners who are not online (yes, there are still some business people who haven't got it yet), their customers are online and if they aren't taking that seriously their reputation is in real trouble.
It's surprising what you can learn from just about anyone or anything. With all the noise online, visual draws and queues can definitely help you stand out. Thanks for integrating your ideas about social media here.
I've been on Google+ since the first invites went out. I've since sent invites to many, many people (both in and out of tech) and few have made the switch.
While I like the concept of G+, and the UI is great... it just isn't going to go mainstream. Comparisons to FB and Twitter's first months are misguided - because neither of them had any real competition in their specific areas.
Google+ has to rely on users who think they have a virus when their browser crashes to make the switch from Facebook to G+ (because they aren't going to maintain 2 social networks). That simply isn't going to happen.
Google did so much wrong with the launch of G+ that I'm actually surprised to see it have as many users as it does.
Well I think the idea of social media certification itself is absurd. Its funny how people think that they need to be certified in everything in order to prove their skills. It really is like being a certified artist or musician. I don’t need to be certified to prove I know how to rock.

How can it set the world on fire if no one's even heard about it? Also while it's not revolutionary it does look really awesome. Then again maybe the fact that it's a mobile app is the main issue. If I were the developers of Path I'd build a web experience to compliment the app and start a traditional tv ad campaign to hype the service.

This doesn't surprise me at all. I've found the Pinterest community to be HIGHLY engaging whereas Twitter has become senseless noise (I do still love it though). Tons of bloggers/entrepreneurs I've spoken with are saying the same thing...Pinterest is beating Twitter/FB in terms of site traffic. It's pretty incredible how they're growing.
