“How CIOs Can Build Business Value Using Social Media” PwC

Leading companies know that participation in social media is no longer an option, but a requirement.

The world’s leading brands are using social media as a meaningful way of deepening relationships with their customers and building revenue. There is also uncertainty from many of our clients about whether to engage in social media, and if so, how to develop and implement an effective strategy.

This paper explains the difference between social media and social collaboration, describes the social media challenges that include quantifying ROI, integrating social media, managing employee access, learning what works by experimenting, and why CIOs and CTOs should become social media role models for their organization.

Benefits and the risks of engaging in social media are numerous — from both the customer-facing perspective, as well as with respect to employees.
