If you are in doubt wether social software has any value for your company or not – do like you always do: Measure it!
Well, thats easy to say and more complex to do. Maybe that is the reason for so many managers say: – Social is a waste of time and money. We make refrigerators. What is so social about that?
They believe “social” is what their kids do. Facebook. Kids stuff.
But is it really? Why not give “social” a chance, read up on it, have a look at professional social solutions for businesses. And why not measure the value of it and make it a business case?
