This is in the printed version and PDF: "A 2008 Nuance Communications study performed by the Society for New Communications Research for7 shows that a hefty number (nearly 75%) of study participants purchased products and retailers based on peer recommendations." It should say "purchased products FROM retailers based on peer recommendations." Sorry :)

"WordPress ... has hundreds of thousands of developers ...": This is probably not true, although they do have hundreds of thousands of users. The WordPress web site says "there are hundreds of people all over the world working on it", see http://wordpress.org/about/

Note from the Author or Editor:
Let's change to "WordPress has thousands of developers" - that is true.

Writing for Blog Audiences, 2nd paragraph

"communicate with their potential and current shareholders?" - shareholders is the wrong word here; it means people who own stock in the company, and this discussion is about potential and current customers. Maybe "stakeholders" was meant? But I think the correct word is "customers".

Note from the Author or Editor:
"customers" is a valid suggestion - thanks.
