  17. 19. “ Authentic” Corporate Brand Image “ We don’t have a corporate blog or a corporate Twitter ID because we want the ‘IBMers’ in aggregate to be the corporate blog and the corporate Twitter ID.

Our brand is largely shaped by the interactions that they have with customers.” Adam Christensen, social media communications, IBM Corporation

  19. 21. Source: http://mashable.com/2009/02/06/social-media-smartest-brands/ When IBM decided they wanted to start using blogs, they didn’t just create one blog, they created an entire network . IBM created a way and allowed their employees to write about their experiences, what they’re working on, or any other topic of choice. IBM capitalizes on the intelligence of their employees to give consumers insight into what happens behind the scene. By giving the industry experts they’ve hired a voice , IBM is able to highlight the people behind their products. Users get to see how IBM operates and are given a direct connection with IBM employees
