You and your organization realize that social media is more than a tweet or status update on the latest social media network. Your management agrees that social media is not a fad. However, some people may still question the value of social media as a critical initiative that supports business outcomes and produces bottom-line results.
Although you know the basics of most of the popular tools e.g. Facebook, Twitter, blogs, LinkedIn, video, podcasts and even Pinterest and Google+ you realize that there is more to social media than just creating buzz. Social media has gone beyond just another channel. Social media tools have laid the foundation for social business, social service, social commerce and most critical the new social customer.
