I’m partial to any data about mental health. I was glad to see that being a part of the report beyond a simple work-life balance question.

What struck me is the personal interaction between brands and customers and how customers value this. I’m integrating this into our social strategy.

It was great to see the majority of social metrics are being shared executive leadership weekly. I still fall into the monthly and quarterly buckets. 

I was also surprised to see the majority like myself are slightly or very apprehensive about AI in social media interactions. I was feeling outnumbered but this chart on 21 proves otherwise.

It’s interesting to see the impact of AI in the social space and but how consumers may feel the complete opposite of brands using AI. And I couldn’t agree more on how siloed a social team is within a company.
