Most everyone is a social media manager in 2019. The tools are part of everyday life and have reshaped the way the world communicates. Surrounded as we are by all this technology, certain fundamentals remain: we're all humans, fundamentally chasing the same things: among them, connection, recognition, to be heard.

Social tools give us the privilege to be where our customers are online, so we can listen, engage, and communicate, making a positive contribution to the customer experience.
