by Alan Underkofler on May 20, 2010

I was just asked this question today from a new client.  Why should my company use Social Media?  The person asking intuitively knows their company should be using Social Media specifically a company blog, Linkedin, Facebook, and why-highway-signTwitter.  And the reason why they know they should be more active in Social Media is because they are seeing their customers use Social Media more and more.  Customers are viewing Facebook and Twitter on their iPhone, Driod phone, and now of course their iPad.
