Manage Facebook and Twitter Accounts easily Using AgoraPulse

Found In: Social Networks

Social media has easily become the latest gold rush for businesses. The pool of social media users has continued to expand exponentially while the number of channels has also increased with users who seem to spend a decent amount of time each day on the social web. Being seen as a gold rich environment for businesses is one thing but being able to effectively ‘mine’gold in the form of customer is a huge challenge for businesses. Many businesses have dipped into the social media terrain and ended up hurting their brands because they had neither mastered it nor understood its nuances. Any environment that has a critical mass of people definitely presents an opportunity on the one hand and a challenge on the other. The social web is no different and for brands seeking to exploit its opportunities to attract more customers and extend their reach, having an in-depth understanding of the social web is absolutely critical.

Twitter and Facebook have emerged as the leading channels on the social web when viewed from the critical mass perspective. Most internet users who have social media accounts do so on both channels and then others if they deem it necessary. It is not surprising therefore, that Twitter and Facebook have become a destination for many brands, both early and late adopters of the social web. Managing a brand’s account and activities on Twitter and Facebook is a daunting task and not to be handled without the right tools and knowledge. This is the point at which many brands fail in their social media efforts. This is also the reason why platforms have evolved to provide the requisite tools and knowledge for enterprises and brands who want to use the social web for brand promotion.
