Uncovering Usage Prevalence and Methods of Organizational Implementation

The primary aim of this research is to gauge the usage trends of social networking within a business context, specifically related to internal and external communications. It covers drivers for social media use, prevalence of social media engagement, and management tool usage. Overall, 90% of respondents use social media for external communications, either in combination with internal use (51%) or for external use only (39%). Only 10% uses it internally alone. Corporate workers are most aware of and most often use LinkedIn, followed by Facebook, then YouTube. Almost half of the respondents are the most motivated users to use social media and are equally aware of the resulting benefits and risks.
