- An excerpt from Preface:

Although the major social media outlets are no more than twenty years old, their growth in terms of audience and functionality has grown exponentially in that time as businesses recognize the explicit economic value of social media use in areas like advertising, market research, branding, sales and contracting, and other direct involvement with customers and suppliers.

That broad functionality, the ability to reach large audiences, and the desire to be a first-adopter of a valuable technology can, however, sometimes lead a business to adopt – at least initially - an uncritical approach to social media use that ignores the need for well thought out review of issues and development of comprehensive use policies.

Please see full guide below for more information.
