The social networking and discovery revolution has transformed every aspect of the business process. Sales, service and support. Recruitment and R&D. Collaborative partnerships, cross-platform promotions, customer experience, competitive intelligence, and crisis management. Social channels affect all of these key business functions – it’s not enough to think of these channels as “media” anymore. They are lifelines to staying competitive, relevant, and viable.
