Everybody is doing it

Facebook, Twitter et al, once social platforms for people, have become marketing and advertising platforms for business. But success has been slow to follow. ‘Digital has changed marketing,’ says Fujitsu’s Simon Carter. ‘The economy has changed marketing. Bad weather changes marketing. So social media must have some effect. But my role as a B2B marketer is barely affected by social media. In 2013, I can’t see any results from social media yet.’
