In recent weeks, most of the immediate universe seemed to be focused on iPhone® 5 mania.

Then, the social networks got more powerful. LinkedIn wasn't really a place to have conversations (like Group Discussions) but I saw people start to comment about my posts ON FACEBOOK! And then quick comments on… Continue
