London, UK

Internet psychologist Graham Jones has written another hard-hitting post about Twitter. He points out the pitfalls of doing too much with social networking sites and not enough with plain e-mailing for business.

Jones says, "As an example, I sell five times as many ebooks using email campaigns than I do via social networking site. I'm not alone either - Tesco and Amazon produce significant returns via email marketing and only use social networking in comparatively minor ways".
