Why businesses need SN

As social beings we spend a good part of our time socializing online: creating and sharing content, chatting and commenting.

Social networks have paved the way for countless new possibilities for companies. It’s never been easier for a company to reach its customers, nor so effective. A Facebook user that ‘likes’ a company’s page for example, sends out a clear message they’re interested and want to establish a connection.

Direct and even personalized communication is now possible. Customers are able to send feedback easily, by commenting on a company webpage for example. The exposure that social networks provide makes it easier for customers to find contact details. A company can create a positive, customer friendly and modern image for itself, just by the proper managing of its online identity. Studies have shown that different network sites attract different users. This opens up plenty of opportunities for personalized or targeted advertising.
