Reap the benefits of social media. Help your business achieve its social media goals. Protect it from possible risks involved. Auditing Social Media shows you how to leverage the power of social media for instant business benefits—such as reaching new markets and increasing sales, while evaluating the risks involved.

The most successful businesses of now and the future are using social media to gain real advantages over their competitors. But do they fully understand the risks? Peter Scott and Mike Jacka, leading experts on social media compliance, explore the risk and compliance issues every business must consider when using social media. They explain social media's history; what it is and why it works; the legal issues involving social media; how to develop a social media strategy; and how to track it through strong metrics.

Packed with useful web links, popular social media tools, platforms, and monitoring tools, Auditing Social Media is the one-stop resource you'll keep by your side to clear away the confusing clutter surrounding social media.

From strategy to compliance to governance, you'll find practical, proven, big-picture guidance toward a mastery of social media, the benefits you can expect—and the risks you must avoid.
