As the number of social platforms increases, there is a greater need to establish an internal and external business strategy, policy and culture to keep pace and build a competitive advantage. Given the expansive selection of social platforms—from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn to Instagram, Pinterest, Foursquare, and Blogs—firms and individuals are struggling to make sense of it all.
