      --Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein, Business Horizons
      Businesses also refer to social media as consumer-generated media (CGM).
      A common thread running through all definitions of social media is a blending of technology and social interaction for the co-creation of value.

    • 7. Social Media is No Longer “New”
      There is no doubt social media is important. It has changed the way people communicate, it has changed business forever and it has changed very quickly. The data shows many companies are just getting their feet wet.
      Social Media is today like the Web was in the ‘90’s – everyone knew they need to use the web, many were unsure how.

      Almost 40 % of those surveyed have no social media process or strategy in place.
