Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 6, 2009
Rasmussen College, a private college based out of Minnesota, has partnered with Radian6 in an effort to monitor the pulse of its brand in the world of online communities (e.g. blogs, forums, etc.).
Social media has become a platform many people are harnessing to share and gather information about a wide range of topics. Companies and institutions are now choosing to include themselves in this conversation, rather than to avoid it.

With the help of Radian6, Rasmussen College is able to monitor communications on this medium and address many different issues.
"Rasmussen College has a strong brand both on and offline. This is just the next step in the evolution of our communication strategy," Vice President of Marketing Bob King said. "Whether there are current students, potential students, alumni, or our employees; we believe it is important to listen and engage with them on various levels and this tool effectively gives us that ability."
Aside from listening and engagement, Rasmussen College will be able to use this tool to help in its day-to-day business initiatives.
"A tool like Radian6 is incredibly beneficial in today's world." said King. "With it, we are able to consistently track ongoing trends and issues within our industry.
