Well, it’s Thursday. We’re way past the mid-way point and nearing the end of what has been an incredible week of networking, sharing, laughing, engaging and participating.

The showcase of panels, presentations, discussions and commentary so far have led me to this conclusion: social media has definitely moved out of the ‘fad’ stage and become a necessary communications channel that many Canadian companies – enterprises to small businesses – are using as customer service platform as well as to build ‘like’-able brand identities.

With that theme in mind, if you didn’t get a chance to attend the Business 3.0 Strategies and Tactics to Leverage Social Media for Business, put on by BMO with panelists from Google, LinkedIn, Silver Lining and The Globe and Mail – check out the livestream below:
