The Social Media Revolution 2012

Social Media Survey

I am studying for a CIM in social media and would really appreciate your support with completing a survey. I can’t wait to see the results, I am trying to establish which social media platforms are the main focus, how long people have been using them, how frequently updated. Whether social media users research first and outline a clear strategy before engaging, what methodology is proving most beneficial in expanding networks and which platforms have shown the best results.
Thank you for your support and I can’t wait to hear your opinions.
