Why Social Engagement Isn’t Enough
Tue, Nov 25th 2014 9:12a Colleen Burns Having a large Twitter following doesn’t constitute success in social business, a truth we all know but may be reluctant to admit. In fact, even celebrity status on social media doesn’t necessarily count as successful engagement with large communities of like-minded people.

What constitutes social engagement?
