We are entering a new phrase for social that sees it growing from just a "marketing" thing to something that provides value across marketing, sales, service, commerce and more.

Most enterprises understand the importance of listening to customer comments and conversations through social channels, and engaging and developing relationships with customers. But as the variety, volume and velocity of social data continues to grow, many organisations are looking for cost-effective ways to use this data to get a better understanding and more holistic view of their customer. Social data reveals a more complete picture and understanding of customers.
