Well there is so much information available these days about social media tool and technologies.  As an organisation you need to find out what you want to use, who’s your target and which best suits your organisation.  The first question you should ask is “what do you want to use it for?” (Again we can group these tools out into the 4 C’s, note most of these can be in more than one category and these are just a few examples). These tools can create value for your organisation by facilitating communication, building business links and to create new opportunities.
