Tumblr uses a similar "follow" approach to twitter. You can also "reblog" entries instead of "retweet" Tumblr is like twitter without the 140 character limit. We are at http://forwardenergysolutions.tumblr.com/

Thanks for the suggestion for Tumblr. I am not familiar with that, but will check it out.
Comment by Silas Inman on November 3, 2010 at 9:37am
I also use various forums, do forums count as social media?
Comment by Sean Lintow Sr on November 3, 2010 at 9:36am
Facebook - nyet
Twitter - si
Blogs & contractor forums are great for not only getting information out on what you do, but helping others learn about best practices and things to avoid
Comment by Silas Inman on November 3, 2010 at 7:24am
In addition to twitter and facebook we are also using Tumblr. We have issued several 'social media only discounts' such as mentioned you heard about us on Twitter or Facebook. Another social media to check out, not sure if you have used Tumblr, it is almost a combination between Twitter and a blog. Very neat.

What ways are you all using social media to interact with customers?
Comment by Chris Jefferies on November 2, 2010 at 11:28pm
Besides the obvious, twitter and facebook, this is what we're talking about. Home energy pros is what it's all about (oh, and the hokey pokey, too. )
