Unfortunately, this is often the worst thing a business can do, as those socially savvy hipsters use social media for hanging out with their friends and sharing, and not for the purpose of business. If you are going to use social media for your business, then social media should be about your business – and ROI (Return on Investment) should be a sizable consideration.
