Social media platforms — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat — are a way for your audience to interact with you and your business. Gone are the days when a boilerplate, corporate ad would satisfy would-be customers. Today, customers want to get behind the scenes. They want to know you and why you’re doing what you’re doing.
