    Not completely sure I agree with Twitter and Facebook not being B2B – their demographics have sponken and it's a lot easier to use these 2 platforms in a B2B SM campaign…As you probably already know that twitter does have a very extensive category catering to specific niches… B2B is P2P (people to people) if you adopt this concept then it's easier to do a SM campaign…
