Looking for insights.
I recently had a conversation with a vendor trying to sell me something to make sure that we were aware of all the conversations happening about us. A client was mentioned that discovered a lot of their students were using Flickr. Later Reddit was mentioned. I am a big fan of both(for very different reasons) but am struggling to see how either would offer any real return if we were to include these platforms as part of our content strategy.
