INTRODUCTION
The sudden emergence of social media in the public
realm and the realisation of a powerful and coordinated
online consumer-force have raised alarms in corporate
offices all over. As consumers increasingly influence each
other and share opinionated views on brands and
products on the internet, businesses are compelled to
rethink and reorganise marketing and communication
strategies in order to address this threat to traditional
ways of doing business.
Changed Landscape

However, as with any shift in philosophy and trend


adoption, understanding the true benefits of leveraging
social media in marketing initiatives continues to be a
challenge for business organisations. Many question the
value of investment in social media and its direct
influence on revenue generation. Others question the
wisdom of easing control over the brand to customers
and risking further exposure to public scrutiny. Hence,
many early commercial approaches to social media are
misguided and flawed as traditional corporate objectives
are in disparity with social medias concept of open and
transparent engagement with the marketplace.
Nonetheless, this sentiment is beginning to change and

marketers are increasingly embarking on social media


campaigns in support of traditional marketing efforts.
Review Objectives

current social media theories and concepts are relevant
and applicable to long-held marketing principles and

and relevant to the marketing discipline.
