So how did we get to such an accolade?Business Insider cited 5 reasons:Passionate social listeners – 5 years, Radian 6, Chief Blogger etcSocial media university - 10,000 team members trained as social media professionalsTurn customers into brand advocates - Throughout last year, we encountered a number of people that were influential - we helped them out and sure enough they’d write or tweet about Dell in a positive way.Dell Execs are social.
