It is perhaps the most radical change of the past 20 years which is being faced by marketing and corporate communications professionals. More than 60% use social media on a regular basis. The conversation about your brand is happening – whether you’re involved or not. Whilst 90% marketers and communicators agree it would be unwise to ignore social media, 63% of the companies do not have a social media strategy…yet. So there is still a lot to learn.

The Top 4 high-Impact Social Media Strategic Movements for 2011, according to several reports are:

1. Global Social media Strategy, but Local Actions because of the completely different European regions
2. Focus on How to turn Social Media Friends into Customers, Getting Management Buy-In and How to Drive Real Return on Social Media Strategies
3. Further improvement on How to Measure ROI with the latest Social Media Metrics Tools & Analysis Software
4. Last but not least: How to define the soft ‘Social Media Success’: Social PR, Online Reputation & Branding to push for competitive advantage
