    I like this presentation because it gives some concrete steps for business people to consider when building customer service into the social media mix, instead of the same stories we’ve heard for the last 3 years. Hopefully these ideas will become standard operating procedures in the next few years.

    Although I know the potential for social media to influence marketing strategies, I am always very impressed when you hear about companies responding and addressing customer issues through social. It’s truly inspiring to see how this new technology is humanizing businesses.
