Chatroulette: The Vblogging craze goes viral!

$104BN Company, Siemens Sets the Bar on Social Media Implementation

In addressing the “quality gap” in social media content across the web, Siemens, the $104BN German corporation, demonstrates how it has embraced the meaning of social media throughout its corporate structure in this post.

Siemens sets the bar on social media implementation

    “One of the things that Siemens is teaching us is the degree

    they increasingly recognize as important to their communications
    outreach, and their senior staff.”

    • Quality, Trusted Authority

    “Siemens is more concerned than most companies with blogger
    ethics, and in putting together our plan to both create a branded
    presence at Cop15, and to create quality and authority in our
    on-site reporting…”

    Corporate Social Media Leadership

    The remaining corporate challenge is producing quality content. The question is posed, “In what ways can trusted “outside” brands or individuals with strong reputations convey quality more quickly?
