We’re all familiar with the power of corporate social sites to constantly monitor customer conversations.
A study by NetBase and J.D. Power Panel raises the alarm about social listening and Big Brother. Not sure it’s warranted at the degree they claim.
However, some interesting findings include:
•Surprisingly, 32% of consumers of all ages and 38% of
Millennials (18–24-year-olds) have no idea companies are
listening to what they say
• Over 40% think listening online intrudes on privacy, even
though this is “social” media
• Nevertheless, nearly 50% say companies should listen to
improve products and nearly 60% want companies to
respond to complaints
Hmmm. So what do they really want? To be heard without being listened-to?
