    Effectively monitor Twitter conversations at faster rate,increasing ability to interact with fans and consumers.
    One FTE social media resource:
    Monitors Twitter—scanned hundreds, if not thousands of posts. Get 10-20 posts per hours and as many as 50 per hour on Twitter, many with direct questions.
    On Facebook—get 10-20 posts a day even if they don’t post anything. Replies to posts can range anywhere from 20-300+ per post over the course of a day.
    Quickly scan posts and focus on important ones such as interacting with a consumer to influence their purchase decision. Consumer then often becomes an advocate and speaks about their experience publicly.
    Address comments on service that the user deemed unsatisfactory or unhelpful (e.g. the time it takes to process returns and receive a new camera). Enables operational improvements.
    Capture celebrity comments and share/repost them.
