Well, it's Thanksgiving, and time to think about what we're thankful about. At the Social Capital Markets blog, we've started a blog roundup (#socap #thankful) and of course this first abbreviated month is about stories of thanks.
During the discussions about topics, Kevin Jones at one point said, "Quantify the good for which you are thankful. Does measuring it make it grow in your mind or memory? So what's the good of social metrics? If they take away from thanksgiving, what earthly good are they?"
As it turns out, this is a topic near and dear. (HINT: What that means is this is going to be a long, rambly post, and now you've been warned!)
