Social media presence is quite important especially in the emerging new companies, this gives an idea about the brand to the customer and one can build its reputation. But there are drawbacks using social platforms, few like:

  • Social media marketing often holds number of followers than the quality of followers ( people who can really buy your stuffs). Also, Likes, share, retweets, comments, etc are given more importance in this system.
  • Internet entities just come and disappear; one cannot rely on social media for a longer time or life time.
  • Social media can prove useless to B2B companies, as no high-level business executive can rely on what they see on social networking sites.
  • Social networking sites like Twitter has only restricted number of (140 characters) words, by which the complete message to convey has to be tossed on its quality. That is a proper or a powerful communication has to be compromised. Rather one could invest time in their own company website doing quality content.
  • It becomes inevitable to ignore customer questions without answering; as there are no solutions for few problems or it may cost you double the amount to sometime replace the product.

But despite all these we still get to see many success stories one which like; a shipping company which earned 650,000 Facebook fans in a year with only one social media manager, without any gimmicks or cheap tricks.
