Yesterday, Read/Write Web profiled seven leading social media evangelists:
Robert Scoble blazed a big trail by blogging and producing video as a technical evangelist for Microsoft from 2003 through 2006. No longer at Microsoft, Scoble now produces media for media’s sake at FastCompany.tv. Others have followed his lead, knowingly or not, and job titles like “social media evangelist” are no longer nearly as rare as they used to be.
Still, many companies wonder what kind of work an employee like that could do for them. We asked around and found seven shining stars engaging in online social media at work.
The Seven Leading Evangelists that they chose to profile are:
- Sam Lawrence, Jive Software
- Daniela Barbosa, Synaptica
- Jeremiah Owyang, Forrester
- Linda Skrocki, Sun Microsystems
- Paul Miller, Tails & ZDNet
- Kristie Wells, Joueur
- Aaron Fulkerson, Mindtouch
