    Great post! :)

    Love the connection between traditional Marketing theory (Maslow’s), and actual Marketing practice/applications. That’s one thing I found in University that was missing (they explained the theory very well, but didn’t apply it to recent marketing trends).

    I think the term ‘social media’ is an incomplete label. Rightly, though clumsily, it should be “Virtual Social Media”. 

    Just as there virtual ways to meet the need for self-realization, there are non-virtual ways to do so as well. Trouble is, we don’t know how many people imagine that the virtual ways are equivalent to or substitute for the non-virtual ways.
