I totally agree Shaylee, for companies that embrace the importance of engaging with their customer, will be the ones that grow significantly over the next few years.

Warren, this is a great topic to talk about. As a consumer, I get frustrated when the companies' whose products I buy or want to buy, etc make it 'difficult' to contact them. Many people these days are busy working their own 9-5 and not available to go to stores or call at 'traditional' times. Moreover, who wants to?! We want brands to interact with us where we are already comfortable- e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and now Pinterest too. Adding ease for customers is good customer service and as you talk about, response rates and acknowledgements go a long way in this medium.
I just wrote an article on How 5 Businesses Are Using Pinterest Boards to Creatively Promote Their Products on Wishpond http://bit.ly/1488eGC and I discovered some brands who are doing a great job of engaging their customers on Pinterest- particularly #5- Nordstrom. Companies can learn a lot about how they respond to their customers and encourage discussions around their products.

Looking at response time in example one I think that it should be that the examples are in minutes and not in seconds as the author proposes. On top of the examples it says (d.h:m) which gives KLM a responsetime of 26 minutes and not 26 seconds. Something is wrong with the text or the examples.
Thanks for a great site!
