can you calculate the return on investment for social networks?

Frogloop (“Catalyzing Expertise in Non-Profit Online Communications”) think you can. They even offer a tool for calculating exactly how much return your ten hours a week in Facebook will give – assuming you’re a non-profit running a campaign solely intended to bring in donations, anyway. The number of variables is frightening, but still one-dimensional – surely the value of social networks goes way beyond simply collecting dollars and cents, kroner and ¯re?
