Social media has come of age as a tool for strategists, investors and other professionals. That's why Brian Egger's book is so valuable. In clear, concise prose he lays out how to use Twitter as well as more specialized social media platforms to derive insights about markets and individual companies.
Useful not only for personal investors, but also for a wide range of professionals who need to keep abreast of companies and markets.
This is a great read for a seasoned investor or someone simply trying to learn more about the resources available to make an educated investment decision. What I also love about this book is that Mr. Egger didn't simply tell the reader about a resource like StockTwits and then leave it at that. He explained in detail the most important features, as well as gave real life example of how that resource had been used for a trade. Lastly, at the end of the book, all the different resources talked about are listed along with the accompanying chapter for reference later. This saved me a lot of time when referring back to the book.
This book was recommended by a Professor and I have recommended it to all my friends as well. If you are not using the resources and strategies that Mr. Egger talks about in this book, then you are far behind the curve and will find success difficult.
I have myself been fairly active on social media for quite some time and used to think of myself as "social media savvy". However, reading this book made me realise how little I really knew, and that social media tools extends way beyond just LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
The book has not only taken me through the uncharted territory of various social media tools, but has also helped me familiarise myself with the ways and means to obtain quality information, in a disciplined and timely manner, while leaving out the "noise". I hope to be able to make much better use of Twitter and a host of other social media tools, in order to improve my investment process, going ahead.
