  • This study is truly helpful for enterprises or companies that are skeptical about how crowdsourcing and social media can create an impact in CSR.

    These findings should be a company’s motivation to make use of crowdsourcing and social media within their company. Skeptics should read this!

    I truly believe in the power of the crowd and that's why I've always been passionate about our site, http://www.crowdsourcing.org. With this belief and the findings of this study, I could really say that companies who have made crowdsourcing an essential part of their CSR communications are really missing a lot!
