No team members visible and limited interaction. 309 subscribers, 150 uploads and 105 000 views on YouTube. Polycom holds at least four corporate accounts on Twitter with a substantial number of followers. Management is represented but the activity level differs. One-way communication. 3300 employees on LinkedIn. Management is represented. Company page have 7000 followers. 27 groups related to Polycom. Low degree of conversation. Corporate website links to five blogs. Most are inactive and do not stimulate dialogue. One-way communication no or very limited interaction. Polycom Press Releases, News Articles and Podcasts available via RSS. It is possible to connect with Polycom in a wide selection of social media including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube as well as management blogs. Substantial number of followers. One-way communtication no or very limited interaction. The different channels are used for information – not communication, interaction or dialogue. Limited local presence. CUSTOMERPARTNERPolycom has specific partners they sell their products to. Those partner’s sell B2B and also B2C. Thousands of the customers are just like you and I. Individuals that use one of their products on a daily basis. The immediate partners have a range of visibility scores, with presence on many different sites.

Companies need to be actively monitoring their online presence, the neutrals can quickly turn into negatives.
