The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC] | E-Books in the Digital Marketplace | Scoop.it

Early adopters, social sharers and power-users are all pivotal in helping your brand reach critical max, but they’re not alone. Indeed, lurkers and even haters can become powerful influencers if you take the time to engage and inspire them"
