      Dan, you were fantastic! Thanks for sharing all of your wisdom!! I just signed up for hoot suite and I love it! What a great resource! Now I am looking for something where I can post a discussion and cross post that to several linked-in groups. Seem to be able to do it for news, but not discussions!
      Thanks again, you were wonderful! We would love to have you back sometime!
