April 20, 2014

Social listening has become an imperative for enterprises today. Consumers have fully embraced social media as a primary channel for sharing their experiences with brands.

For companies engaged in social listening, they oftentimes find themselves trying to monitor a massive amount of data but feel overwhelmed.
