$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.

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

    • Quality, Trusted Authority

    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
