Whether you're in a big company or starting anew, taking on social communications is entrepreneurial. There is no manual for how to utilize it to achieve business value. Marketing, recruiting, customer care, sales, employee retention and culture are all important areas to leverage social media.
In this presentation, I've put together all of the data I used to help build a social strategy for Compuware. I hope it will help you to get started in social.
