Companies are Doing Social Media Wrong
Companies are Doing Social Media Wrong

Advertisers and marketers are all over social media because they think that sites such as Facebook and Twitter provide a direct link to customers. Yet, according to a new Gallup study, social media isn't even close to being the persuasive force that companies think it is. Get this: 62% of adults report that social media ads have zero impact on their decisions. Zero. And users who like or follow a company aren't that engaged either. So why the low impact? Companies are doing social media wrong. Instead of connecting with people and starting conversations, a lot of companies are participating in one-way conversations - and, as the sobering Gallup numbers suggest, this a big mistake.
