A really spot-on article from +Mashable - it's aimed more at small or start-up businesses trying to design their social media presence. However, you can apply some of the points to any company reconsidering their #social strategy (such as only commit to platforms that really speak to you and whether or not to use agency or in-house social media managers).
Mashable
Entrepreneurs and marketers with successful social media strategies weigh in on some best practices for building an audience on social.

Look closely!
 
Portraits is a series of photographs of gym patrons, who, while working out, are visible from the public sidewalk. These portraits are executed without engaging in conversation or having met with any of them in the past. The photographs are captured using an antiquated large format film camera on a tripod, constructed each time in front of the window, extending the duration that allows the subject to walk away. The subject staying, however, produces the overt intentionality of taking a portrait of someone I do not know, who is exposed to the public while doing something physical in a supposed private space.

I'm more interested that Avon is the second most engaging brand on Facebook (and yet I can't reference them by a + name here...).

Story

Full of quirks - lots of heart and a bit of brains, I live a digital life
Introduction
The genesis story begins in Michigan at a nondescript point in time. A high school job shadow launched the dream - starting with a career in radio, which became a career in public relations and today finds me spending my days being 'social' for a living.

I learn for fun and enjoy music by moving to it. I frequent my local library for free entertainment. I currently live in LaLaLand and enjoy what the city has to offer.
