    • The impact Social media is an incredibly dynamic environment. Terms like “friend” and “influencer” are no longer adequate to describe the array of social activity and interaction that is occurring amongst the vast communities now being built online. A deeper understanding of consumer needs and motivations is the key to unlocking a real understanding of social media and its users. Social networks are becoming powerful hubs of interconnected communities but it’s not just people that are connecting in the social media space. There is huge demand for a more social and interactive relationships with brands and companies. There is more possibilities for consumers to interact and effect products, delivery and here social meda plays important role. Almost half of the Active Internet Universe has already joined a brand community. These communities are also clearly having a huge benefit to the brands involved, driving brand loyalty, endorsement and sales. However, understanding the nature of social demand for each consumer, category and market is the key to creating a successful social media experience. The Socialisation of Brands 51
