  15. 15. Third Wave Framework • • Strategy • Content: What do we want to talk about? What are the topics and ideas? What is the added value that we want to provide on the social web? • Platforms: Where do we want to talk with them? Which platforms are the best for the people we want to reach and the content we want to talk about? People: Who do we want to talk with? What is there to know about them? About their interests, their goals, their lives, their behavior, etc.?
  16. 16. Third Wave Framework • • Setup • Internal Organization: Who is in charge of the strategy inside the company? What roles and teams need to be designated? What processes need to be in place? Which vendors need to be brought in? Monitoring, Analytics, Reporting: How can we listen to what people say about us and the topic relevant to us? How do we measure what our strategy achieves? How do we gain insight and improve our approach?
