  1. Thanks for sharing this, Olga! I, for one, am a huge advocate for taking to social media when I need something solved.

    In particular, I identified with the part about returning for future business if my problem is addressed. Even if the issue is not solved, I am not being ignored by a company. No response tends to feel like a company is “too big” and not really concerned with my own matters.

    I’ll be sharing this with everyone I know!

    1. Thank you for your comment, Mike. I also use Social Media when I would like to find out about a company or have my problem solved. With social media everything is transparent and if social media is used not only for marketing purpose but also for customer service – businesses will only benefit from this.
