It's no longer enough to be a social brand. In order to survive in today's business world, organizations must transform themselves into social businesses. One of the emergent trends we're tracking is the move from social to experiential, where social media plays one part in the greater production of everyday customer engagement. It's not just about technology — it's about technology enabling experiences that provide real value to customers, and helping them share that value with their communities.
