Facebook's power as a brand marketing tool is firmly and unquestionably established. But the social media landscape is full of new and emerging platforms that present brands with unique, targeted, and uncluttered ways to engage consumers.
These platforms range from the bold experiments of incumbent players (Facebook Places, Boutiques.com, Twitter, Youtube etc.) to emerging players that have gained traction over the last 12 months (Foursqaure, Tumblr) to very nascent players with small but passionate user bases (Pinterest, Get Glue, Layar).
The challenge for brands is sorting through the crowd to find the platforms most likely to generate momentum and return on investment.

- Which ones are appropriate for their brands
- How to use these platforms in innovative ways
- Appropriate levels of investment
- Strategies for working with these young, evolving companies
