Watching a business beg for Facebook Likes is starting to look a little sad as we all rush toward what we assume is an important metric, even if few of us know how to monetize social media followers.
How To Quantify And Track Social Media Efforts And Followers
Here's how GaggleAMP describes their service:
"For marketers looking to drive engagement through social media, GaggleAMP is the social marketing platform that lets them leverage the potential reach of individual employee, customer, and partner accounts through a unique, accountable, and privacy-assured message delivery model. Using GaggleAMP, companies are able to widely distribute their content and messages by creating a network of people (what we call a “Gaggle”) that share, Tweet, and post company-created messages and content. In addition to message amplification, GaggleAMP delivers a full range of related analytics and rich ROI reporting for activity on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn."
The idea is that you share your message with your current followers and then offer a reward incentive for getting them to pass on your message to their followers.

Breakout Video Q & A Tool for Business
Vyou is what they call "Conversational Video", a forum in which you ask questions of others and receive a two-minute reply. Think of it as Yahoo Answers in video format. Anyone can be questioner, responder or both.
What makes Vyou instantly engaging is that to get started you upload a 2-minute video of yourself keeping busy on camera as you wait for the incoming question. It's not live but it gives the impression of a live person there waiting to be talked to. Cool...
