Practitioners are quick to focus on the reputational impact of social media on organizations. However, that misses a big opportunity, because by understanding content and conversations taking place, we can deliver powerful insights to an organization.

Learn how practitioners can be strategic communication advisers to organizations as social media is integrated within every department.
