Many business people see the social media frontier as the next marketing gold rush. Companies have been effectively using social media to grow their businesses. The three major players in the social media marketing domain are the technology providers, the creators of social networks, and the companies using social networks to market their products and services. This social networking panel will address the following critical questions:
- How do companies leverage social media to interact with their consumers?
