Be Selective About Your Social Media“In social, you need to be fast, but you also need to be cautious”

As social media has evolved, those who work with social media marketing have gained more freedom to make crucial decisions around what goes out and what doesn’t.

Not every company update or press release has to be broadcasted on social media. As Rick Wion, Senior Director of Consumer Engagement of The Kellogg Company said, “for social, we really just need to focus in on this one component of things versus supporting every part of every program with a plethora of social content.

The hard truth is that not every update is “social media worthy.” Brands need to be more selective about the content they share on social media. Making sure your brand communicates authentically is vital. Being attuned to what your audience wants to see from you is perhaps even more important.
