important. Knowing what to look for and what to get out of a social experience platform is extremely important in creating a successful campaign, product launch, or dynamic brand experience.
The old adage, "you get what you pay for" may no longer be true when it comes to traditional paid media investments. Effectiveness of traditional advertising and paid media - TV, newspaper, print - is on the decline, so marketers are choosing to push their dollars to social advertisements.
