Hello Heather, By no means is this an inclusive list. These are just some of the industries I've seen use it well. On the other hand, I've seen many not use it well. There is a lot involved in using it the right way, and most companies just don't 'get it'. I think for others the time or money investment into social is just too much, or they are afraid to get social.

What has your experience been?

Hi Mary,

All great examples of businesses and industries that are using social media (and really a lot of online marketing techniques) correctly. The question is for industries and markets not on this list (I'm sure we can all think of a few!) why are they failing to do so? And is it hurting their business?
