Executive Summary 
 
Social media crises on the rise – yet most companies are ill-prepared.
Companies arequick to deploy the latest social media technology, yet most have not prepared for the threat ofsocial media crises, or long-term effects on business. While the incidence of social mediacrises is on the rise, we found that more than three-fourths (76%) could have been diminishedor averted had companies invested internally.
 Advanced companies invest in four social business requirements – but are still deficient
.
 We interviewed and surveyed some of the world’s most advanced companies in socialbusiness, and found most invest in four social business requirements. Advanced companiesestablish governance, define real-time processes, foster a culture of learning, and organize intoa scalable formation. However, despite these investments, even Advanced companies have yetto tie customer data to the product roadmap and into support systems. Furthermore, theycontinue to struggle with a fragmented technology set and lack standard measurementframeworks.
To become advanced, companies must climb the Social Business Hierarchy of Needs.
 Learn from where others have succeeded and failed – companies should follow the SocialBusiness Hierarchy of Needs. First, develop business objectives and establish governance,then get organized by establishing a team and a process to deal with crises. Next, connectbusiness units to increase coordination and reduce duplication. Finally, weave real-time marketresponse into business processes and planning.
