Although teen and young adult students are some of the most entrenched in social media, it’s ironic that more colleges aren’t taping into social trends when it comes to crisis communication. The following infographic from OnlineColleges.net shows some interesting stats (and missed opportunities!) for today’s institutes of higher education. Although, truth be told, many businesses outside of academia are all too slow to embrace social media and implement it into their crisis communications plans, as well.

I agree to this infographic, this is what social media can do to our everyday life.
I wonder how many companies still don’t have a social media policy to operate within. This is just as important as any project plan that needs parameters.
I’d venture to say most still don’t. Even media companies were slow to adopt SM policies. Unfortunately, many companies still don’t seem to think this kind stuff applies to them.
This is a really great infographic on the important social media, I saw an infographic that had to do how social media played into trends for the hospitality industry http://www.nbrii.com/resources/infographics/nbri-infographic-5hospitalitytrends.jpg, but I really like how yours goes into crisis management.
Good info. Thanks for sharing!

for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it
