If you are running Drupal 7, then the list of modules you’ll be installing is a bit different from previous versions. Much of the functionality of modules like CCK is now included in Drupal Core, and that has made a significant impact on the way we develop Drupal sites in D7.

If you want to waste a ton of time and money and really fail at social media marketing, I have some excellent advice: start up a legitimate social media campaign or newsletter, spend a bunch of money on advertising, build a website or two, sign up for TwitterMySpaceFacebook, and then get distracted after a few weeks and blow it off. Trust me, I know what I’m talking about on this one. This approach will never work.
