Book review: The New Community Rules - Marketing on the Social Web, by Tamar Weiberg
It’s a little over 300 pages, but reads easily and is a great reference tool for navigating social media sites such as Facebook and Flickr, understanding blogs and why YouTube is so popular.

Social Marketing Playbook - free download about using Facebook and Twitter to communicate
There are probably two errors we can fall into – believing that there is 100% commonality between secular marketing strategies and sharing the good news, and assuming that there is nothing we can learn or adapt from secular wisdom.

Best introduction I’ve seen on the subject.
