A challenge for social media marketers and communications professionals is coming to an agreement on transparent ways of measuring social media’s effects.

Last week, Justin Bieber launched his new single, “Boyfriend” — largely by promoting it on social media. It’s been wildly successful so far, and sales don’t appear to be slowing down. Key to his success with this single and other songs has been his engagement with his young fans on social media, most notably Twitter.[…] Continue Reading »
