According to World Wide Worx and Fuseware's South African Social Media Landscape 2016 study, a quarter of all South Africans - 13 million people - now use Facebook. This means that if businesses want to continue to build their brand and capture the attention of their customers they need an online presence. It also means that people are turning to their favourite social media platform to find new products, to engage with ones they already use and to find out what is going on in the world around them. Now, more than ever, maintaining a competitive edge, getting new customers and staying current is dependent on your online presence.

Managing a company's reputation, especially in a digital era, is becoming more complex and challenging. And yet, the gap between the in-house teams that own and manage corporate reputation and the teams (be they in-house or outsourced) that actually engage with customers in the social media space is growing wider, to the point that there is a disconnect between policy and practice.
