    ROI from a social context is not about “monetization” but measuring the incremental value it brings to your business.It is about measuring how well an employee, team and/or even company is doing in meeting the business challenges they are trying to address.
    Do you get new products or services to market - faster?
    Are their resulting cost reductions in existing business units because of improved processes and communications?
    Has the community improved knowledge sharing? (i.e., best practices and tools that improve the quality of processes, products, or services)
    Are you better connected to your customers? And are they more satisfied? Resulting in higher customer retention and/or minimized support costs.
    Has knowledge sharing increased rate of innovation? New product improvements, methodologies and/or ideas?
    Employee satisfaction and motivation, has it improved? Have your employee retention rates gone up? Are more people applying for jobs? Have the number of sick days gone down?
