Be strategic about who is managing your Socia Media. It matters...

Interesting that writing skill is such a low priority for social media personnel (only 18%). Might be why only 5% of companies are happy with their social media activities :-)

I agree, content needs to be written by someone with writing skills..

Like it or loathe it, the term ‘social business’ looks like it’s here to stay – if judged by the increasing number of infographics appearing online. So I thought it would be worth rounding them up and picking out the most salient points.

"Qu'on le veuille ou qu'il déteste, «social business» le terme semble que c'est là pour rester - si on le juge par le nombre croissant d'infographie qui apparaissent en ligne. J'ai donc pensé qu'il serait utile de les rassembler et choisir les points les plus saillants".

The What, the Why & the Who – How are Brands Using Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media |

Did you know that just over one quarter (27%) of organizations have a dedicated social media team, with almost two-thirds (65%) assigning social media tasks on top of existing job responsibilities, typically to employees working in marketing or PR?

These findings come from a recent survey, which also revealed that a combination of relevant education and experience is the most sought-after quality for a company looking to hire someone to work in their social media department. Also, the vast majority of firms (86%) measure their social media ROI by standard metrics such as Likes and followers.

65% of organizations cite lack of time as their biggest stumbling block to social media success, and 87% say that increasing brand awareness is their number one goal.
