Though the title looks quite weird, it’s worth to pen that only 28% CEOs consider their companies’ social media reputations when they make business decisions, while over 36% (nearly 1/3rd) of the CEOs fail to consider – a survey notes.

Generally, B2B companies do consider and respond to reputation crises than their B2B counterparts.70% of B2C CEOs frequently consider social media reputation whereas, 57% of CEOs frequently consider social media reputation as far as B2B companies are considered. Only 45% of B2B executives consider their firm could respond to a negative post within 24hrs compared to 63% of B2C.

B2C companies are prepared to respond more quickly to online audiences in a crisis. B2B companies are less likely to engage online in a crisis.  B2B executives are twofold (13%) as likely to say that their firm would not engage an audience online to defend their reputation, compared to 6% of B2C executives.


Interestingly, fluctuation in attitude towards social media reputation was directly proportional to company’s size. 71% of the large company (more than 10,000 employees) CEOs always or sometimes considers their company’s social media reputation, compared to 55% of small companies (with less than 10,000 employees). The tendency to ignore social media reputation is more prominent in small firms which signals 45% chances to rarely or never considered in decision-making, compared to 29 percent of larger firms.

Similarly, when looking at company size by revenue,with 63% — majority of the largest firms (with revenue of $10 billion or more) say that they could react within 24 hrs, in contrast to 42% of smaller firms (less than $5 billion in revenue) while, larger firms are also more probable to respond quickly to a damaging issue online.

Overall study implies that there is still much opportunity to introduce the concept of social media reputation into the C-suite. From the study it is depicted that many organizations are missing opportunities to either progress their reputations or to defend them.
