@FeldmanCreative: The "State of Online Branded Communities" study was initiated four years ago to offer a view of the member experience from the user perspective. The story the data tells us is that brands need to be more present where conversations occur, provide stimuli for deeper and new conversations and better leverage their community assets within the larger digital eco-system. We believe these are valuable insights for today's social brands.
