Most of us are now using social media in some strategic capacity, whether it’s corporate blogging, tweeting or building a Facebook community. But how many of us know how to attribute a meaningful ROI on the activity we’re undertaking?

– The main types of social media metric by platform

– What's tangible – the specific metrics that demonstrate value
