Social media CEO lessons

Social media can be a double-edged sword for companies. On one hand there are all the benefits of better engagement with customers and building better brand awareness, on the other there’s significant risk that a half-baked policy could end up doing more damage than good.

The companies that excel will be ones that are lead by a management team that knows how to walk that tightrope and this infographic  from Voltier Digital for looks at what they need to know.
