S
everal days ago, social media and buzz marketing guru Guy Kawasaki alerted his 150,203 followers to the new AdAge '25 MORE People You Should Follow on Twitter' via his own feed. In case you've been living in a cave, this former chief of Apple Computer is widely credited to be the Father of evangelism marketing and one of the world's leading commentators on social media. Interstingly, Kawasaki had already Tweeted the message before AdAge ...

... a good twenty minutes earlier. Curious, we followed GKs Twitter link to the AdAge website. We were aghast to find that AdAge had not included Agency.Asia on this hot list [OK - we weren't really surprised] and jokingly expressed our displeasure via Twitter at precisely the same time that AdAge themselves first announced the aforementioned list on Twitter - which you will see on the screen-capture up above. Stick with us here, we are highlighting this tale for several important reasons.

It is extremely rare that Agency.Asia breaks a story at the same time as AdAge, Campaign Brief, Media or most others. In fact, we are always trailing them and late bringing you the news because we are a monthly - and even later still because our entire team of voluntary contributing editors aren't journalists, but work in rather responsible positions in the advertising and marketing industries. We would therefore ask you - our loyal readers - to subscribe to one or more of our feeds you'll see down below here. That way you will know when our next issue goes live and we won't feel guilty that you drop by and we've not put up the new issue. If you're reading this article, we're tipping that you're interested in emerging media - and definitely so are we.

We are looking for social media gurus who are interested in writing for Agency.Asia Magazine ...

We have a particularly strong interest in social marketing and you may have noticed that we at Agency.Asia are somewhat evangelical about 'creative + effective' advertising and marketing. We are on the lookout for one or two respectable people to write a monthly piece on all the Web2.0 'buzz' that creatives and marketers alike find reasonably baffling. If you're that person and qualified to pull up a soapbox, get in touch with us. Your very own by-lined column awaits you. Please email us today!

Once more, please help us to reach you by joining one of our Agency.Asia Groups - where you'll get updated. We don't want to lose you and now's the perfect time to do it. They are the ones immediately after this article. Please also take note of the new mini-buttons above and below every article that lead to Technorati, Digg and the rest. If you like our site, or even one particular interview, please be so kind as to take a few seconds to add us to your favourite community and spread the word. Thank you!
