Social Media Not Embraced by Security Market

Author: John Honovich, Published on Sep 02, 2009

While social media (twitter, facebook, etc.) receives a lot of mainstream media attention, social media is essentially irrelevant to the security market. While it may improve, I think it will be a slow and long process.

To that end, Johnson Control's Twitter Contest does not look promising. JCI wants you to read their blog, get 4 keywords over 4 weeks and then 'tweet' those keywords to JCI's twitter account on September 21st. All to win $100 USD.
