social media 'long tail' has arrived. democratizing media has allowed voices to be heard however care must be taken not to damage one's brand & personal reputation. having a bully-pulpit & megaphone like Twitter/FB is great for those who have no voice or with grievances to air or those who brand build but closed networks are more valuable from a personal & professional perspective.
