Social media isn’t just a marketing tool. It’s a philosophy and a way of engaging with stakeholders. It’s more than setting up a Facebook page. It’s about redefining how you do your work. The old model of doing business is disappearing and it’s no longer top-down. It’s not enough to delegate social media to an intern or even a consultant like myself. You need a game plan to incorporate it into all aspects of the organizational mission. When I talk to executives, they have their own set of priorities and social media can be jarring for them because it fundamentally shakes up how they do things.
