2012 Social Engagement Exam - Social Brands at a Glance

As 2012 comes to a close, we've spent some time reflecting on success trends and benchmarks across the landscape of corporate social marketing programs - many of which were uncovered  in the 2012 Social Engagement Index Benchmark.

The report, analyzing internal and external social engagement of 154 large companies, made it clear that  more people are engaging in more places to engage in more conversations. And that this engagement is happening across brands of all industries.

In the spirit of helping social brands see how they "stack up" to peers, we created and invite you to take the Social Engagement Exam. (As a holiday bonus, we've even filled the answers in for you.)

Here's the Cliff's Notes of the top 6 takeaways you should keep top of mind.
