Under normal circumstance, I do not like the types of social media strategies that try to can them into basic processes with time limits. Sure, it’s good to have guidelines, but I find that they’re normally too limiting to allow people to make the right decisions.

The rapid growth of the social media in the recent past made it an indispensable tool in the hands of marketing managers around the world.
