The Value of The Small Audience

We push for likes and retweets and followers all the time in social media, then call it a social success. And certainly there is always value to be gained from gathering a large audience. But if social gives us the ability to engage an audience more fully, aren't we diluting this effectiveness by apply broadcasting techniques with no plan for loving our true advocates? This session discusses a vision for valuing the small audience with your larger one, and how to create balance between the two.
