    CONTROL QUESTION: What is the most important Social Media platform to be active in or to monitor?

    My big hairy audacious goal for 10 years from now for Active Listening is to be the leading platform for monitoring and analyzing user conversations on social media platforms, specifically targeting the rapidly growing and ever-evolving platform of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).

    In today′s digital age, communication and consumption habits are constantly shifting and evolving.

    Active Listening Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:

    Case Study: Active Listening in Social Media


    A multinational fashion brand is looking to expand their social media presence and increase their engagement with their target audience. While they have a presence on multiple social media platforms, they want to understand which platform is the most important for them to be active in or monitor in order to drive their social media strategy and achieve their business goals.

    Consulting Methodology:

    The consulting team used active listening as a methodology to identify the most important social media platform for the client to focus on. Active listening refers to the practice of monitoring and analyzing online conversations about a brand, product, or industry to gain insights and improve brand perception (Kaplan & Haenlein, 2011). It involves analyzing both direct and indirect mentions of the brand, including comments, reviews, and shares, on various social media platforms.


    1. Social Media Listening Report: The first deliverable was a comprehensive report that analyzed the client′s presence and mentions on each social media platform. This report provided insights on the volume of conversations, sentiment analysis, and key themes associated with the brand on each platform.

    2. Platform Ranking Matrix: Based on the insights from the social media listening report, the consulting team created a platform ranking matrix to compare and rank the effectiveness of each platform in reaching the target audience, driving engagement, and achieving the client′s business goals.

    3. Content Strategy Recommendations: The consulting team also provided recommendations for the type of content that would be most effective on the most important platform, based on the analysis of the target audience′s preferences and behavior.

    Implementation Challenges:

    While active listening is a powerful tool to understand the sentiments and preferences of the target audience, it can be challenging to collect and analyze vast amounts of data from various social media platforms. Additionally, the client′s brand presence and conversations varied across different platforms, making it difficult to compare and evaluate equally.


    1. Social Media Engagement: The primary KPI for this project was the level of engagement on the identified platform, including likes, comments, shares, and mentions.

    2. Brand Sentiment: Another important KPI was the sentiment analysis of conversations associated with the client′s brand on the identified platform. This provided insights into how the brand was perceived by the target audience and whether the content resonated positively with them.

    Management Considerations:

    1. Resources and Budget Allocation: The consulting team worked closely with the client′s marketing team to ensure that resources and budget were allocated effectively to focus on the most important platform.

    2. Content Strategy Alignment: The recommendations for content were aligned with the client′s overall marketing strategy to ensure consistency and effectiveness.

    3. Ongoing Monitoring: It was recommended that the client continues to actively listen to conversations on all social media platforms to stay updated on their brand′s reputation and perception.


    Based on the recommendations and insights provided by the consulting team, the client shifted their focus from Twitter to Instagram as the most important social media platform for their brand. This decision was based on the high volume of engagement, positive sentiment, and alignment with the target audience′s preferences and behavior. The client saw an increase in brand awareness and engagement on Instagram, leading to improved business results.
