Social Media can be successful in many ways if it is used correctly. A good example of where it can do well is in the workplace. In doing so, it is important that everyone at the firm or company be using social media, including the CEO, who may be the most important person on media. Studies have shown that 76% of managers and executives feel that a company is more effective if their CEO is on social media. Also, 52% feel more inspired to work if their CEO is on social media.
It doesn’t really matter what social media is being used, however there are the obvious ones such as Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.
I believe that social media can benefit the workplace and a company tremendously. Social media may affect the way your employees feel about their working environment and also the way the work place is managed. This media could either be used for company purposes or by the employees themselves. Regardless of the platform or purpose, I think that we live in a different time now. A time where most companies can’t live without some sort of media, and you just have to be careful of what is posted and how you do so.
