Kittie Walker - Communications and Marketing from Indigo

I met +Kittie Walker through an online writing course we both took with Chris Brogan. Basically she came from nowhere in my world, to everywhere I was.  I just had to open my eyes and look for her. The image in this profile represents her well. She thinks about stuff. A lot. So whenever she says something, shares a post, or writes something, I do my best to read it.  I trust what she has to say, because I trust her motives. They are always great insights about things bigger than the facts.

Mark Traphagen - Socially Correct!

You've been on the Internet for a while.  You can search and find stuff.  You know what boo-lee-un does, but you can't spell it. What you can't explain, you can fake.
When the boss asked if you had a "MySpaceBook website portal social network thingie", you smiled and said "Of course!"  When they mentioned Google+ you nodded, "I'm aware."  You showed them how to send a text message and became an instant 'guru'.  But when their 11 year old asked you what "WTF" meant,  and you replied "We're The Future", your fate was sealed.
Congratulations. You've done it. You've been promoted to Social Media Marketing Director. You're going to need to circle +Mark Traphagen

Ronnie Bincer - The Hangout Helper

+Ronnie Bincer appears to be a man on a mission. That mission seems to be to help everyone on the planet learn how to use Google Plus.  Ronnie would love to see all of carbon based Earthlings enjoying the benefits of using Google Hangout to communicate with the people they care about. Whether that's customers, family, or friends makes no difference to Ronnie. And he's having a good time doing it.

Mike Arnesen and SwellPath - Google + Interactive Posts

The first day I saw a Google Interactive Post, I really didn't know what it was.  I read the story, toyed around with it for a bit. But I didn't get it the way that I do now. And neither did some of my friends.

So I Created A Post With Their Product

Mind you, it was for example only.  It was into a very private group in Google+.  Only 25 users in fact.  I posted a link to a book that one of it's members had written. Within two days the member had four more sales, and that was from about 12 active members. The conversion rate was high. And that wasn't even my goal. I was just using it for an example of what an Interactive Post looked like.

David Kutcher & BlogXpertise - Game Changers

I'm not really sure where I first saw +David Kutcher and +Confluent Forms LLC work. I just remember thinking that they were going to make something happen.  Not because the stuff was all that technical. It just had a look of professionalism about it that spoke volumes about their approach.
