SaaS Demos – Getting “Social”

Being “social” is an additional challenge for many SaaS demos…  Customers often want SaaS offerings to integrate with and/or feed a range of “social” tools (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, etc.).  This adds more complexity in demo preparation and delivery.  There is even an entire cadre of “social aggregator” tools designed to help address these efforts, including EventBox, twentyfeet, Flock, friendfeed, youmeo, ping and a pile of others. 

[Some of the names of these tools are really fascinating, for example:  Twitter Tools, Twhirl, TweetBeep, TwitBin, Twidget, TwitterBerry, and Twittalotor Pro.  Gad!]

Any thoughts on best practices in this regard?
