Ed Keller, co-author of 'The Face-to-Face Book'

Companies around the globe are trying to big up their brands on sites like Facebook and Twitter. The research firm E-marketer says the social media advertising will be worth $10 billion next year.

He's also co-author of "The Face-to-Face Book", in which he argues that social media is not the king of the advertising hill.
