@fcotignola -- true. Didn't mean to make it sound so simplistic. But wouldn't you agree it starts with listening?

Beth, I think there is a lot more to it than that. Social media listening opens up a world of possibilities in terms of research in such areas as new product ideation and development, competitive intelligence, market structures and segmentation. The mistake people make is that they listen narrowly for only brand comments and miss out on a significant majority of comments that can provide deep insight.

Alexis, I agree. Heading off escalation of a problem is a quintessential use of social media -- which means a company has to be able to monitor and measure what's happening out on the social networks and make effective use of that information. The tricky part is knowing when a lone voice will spark a revolution, in a manner of speaking!

I would think the most valuable thing is staying on top of complaints - and trying to resolve issues as they surface rather than waiting until they escalate.

Let's assume a company has a strong text mining solution for social media. What are some of the insights you think it might find?

@Noreen, well that's a real head scratcher. I certainly hope somebody there is paying attention to social media!

Someone speaking on text mining at a recent conference actually suggested skipping social media - he said he didn't bother with it. And this person was from a large company.

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
