Like its financial counterpart, the social media audit (SMA) can be described as a formalized review of anorganization's social media activities.

This book will address social media marketing issues using a cost benefit approach, while presenting a systematic approach to review the organization's social media activities. Using the checklists and templates provided in this book will enable readers to conduct an audit that helps identify target areas for performance improvement and recommendations for how to achieve these objectives.
