Social Business Maturity

We asked respondents to rate on a scale of 1 to 10 the maturity of their organization’s social business practices. Organizations whose respondents rated their organization’s social business practices as 1-3 were categorized as “early”; 4-6 were categorized as “developing”; and 7-10 were categorized as “maturing.” Read the full report to learn more about social business maturity.
