Published on

The use of social media by institutional and retail investors is growing at a significant rate. Companies that have embraced social media as a core element of their disclosure are seeing a substantial increase in awareness of their company and their ability to attract and influence investors.

Based on these findings, on June 14, 2011 Q4 sponsored a Lunch ‘n’ Learn session at the 2011 NIRI Annual Conference which sought to answer this question:

‘Is now the time for all companies to adopt social media disclosure and move beyond compliance to a more efficient and effective model of disclosure?’
