Daughter of Hugh and CEO of Playboy Enterprises Christie Hefner told the audience at Forrester’s Consumer Forum that they better get on this social media thing quick, and if they’re working for a company that resists new media, to “put their resume on the street.”

    Of course, it would be a good idea to let all of the fans of your magazine, Kristie, participate instead of those who go to college. No wonder I haven’t bought the magazine in years!!
