The Washington Post article on how Blog Buzz Helps Companies Catch Trends in the Making made the blogosphere rounds yesterday, appearing on 31 blogs according to Technorati and posted
seven eight times on del.icio.us.
The article itself deserved to make the rounds and is worth a read, but the Post’s use of social media tools is also prompting some of the popularity.
You can also save and tag the article using the del.icio.us social bookmark tools.
