MARIA OGNEVA'S BLOG
Hello, and welcome to my blog and the digital home for my thoughts. Most know me as @themaria, my handle across most social media sites and communities. My actual, given name is Maria Ogneva, and I love writing, traveling, eating, and spending time with my new husband.
I am passionate about how social media is changing the way we communicate, help and relate to each other, share news and make the world a smaller, more hospitable place. I work at Salesforce as Director of Product Marketing on the Communities product, where my job is to help customers (and the world at large) to be successful in building communities. I learn every day, and I share my thoughts and personal growth here.

Last Wednesday, Macala Wright Lee, Crosby Noricks and myself were amazingly lucky to share our passion for blending fashion and technology during our fashion and retail panel during Jeff Pulver‘s 140 Conference.
The major issues we tried to tackle (as much as possible to do in 10 minutes) were: innovation in social sites and applications, what works and doesn’t work on Twitter (your list of Do’s and Don’ts of engaging on Twitter), tweeting as a person vs. a brand, and measuring social media ROI. We also talked about our favorite fashion Twitterers, from designers and brands, to publications and blogs. You can view the full video of the panel here, courtesy of Real Player and Blip.TV:
