Flickr! I've been going around the world talking about the use of
these various sites - and I just finished a 4-day workshop that covers
some of what you have listed, plus quite a bit more. The workshop
"materials" are at http://becoming20.pbwiki.com - including the slides
that we used for each day's lessons. Feel free to troll through those
to get ideas on how libraries are using these things - and adapt that
to your business clients. I certainly take materials aimed toward
business use of social media and adapt it to libraries!!
