It is precisely these factors that have caused social networks to originate from merely being hands-on means for keeping in touch with friends and family and in the process being used in ways that promote social good. Social media is being used to re-shape politics, business, world culture innovation, and limitless others.
If you as a customer are unaware of what social sites your audience base is using and reviewing in your chosen industry, you would definitely miss out on the opportunities to leverage reviews that could be for your benefit.

The Public Relation Initiatives
