Companies Rocking it on Facebook

Rocking it on facebookIt seems like social media is everywhere, and every marketer is clamouring to get in the game. And it’s no surprise why. The time most global consumers spend on social media has grown over 250% in just the past two years. Therefore it is becoming more and more evident that companies must engage with individuals on these multiple channels. The difficulty now is that one company may have to maintain and engage its audience on three, four, five, or even more social networks at once. This can be a daunting task if you aren’t a so-called social media expert. But that doesn’t mean you simply ignore social media. The forecast for global social media revenue is expected to be 29 billion by 2015. Clearly there’s value to being present, and effectively using, these platforms.
