These days it’s pretty common to walk into your favorite local establishment and see a sign on the door that says, ‘Like us on Facebook’ or ‘Check in on Foursquare.’ That’s because retailers and restaurants are finding new and creative ways to use social media to reach out to and connect with local customers online. Customers actually want to connect with their favorite retailers and restaurants to learn about special promotions and hear what they have to say.
