(Note: Use the following five (5) key metrics for auditing a company’s social media presence on individual social media platforms:

    • Reach – Indicates the number of Twitter followers, Facebook fans, LinkedIn group members, Flickr view count, and so on.
    • Company Posts – Measure how often the company posts on each social media platform.
    • Feedback – Shows the number of comments, likes, or replies to company-generated content.
    • Average Response Time – Assesses response time to user comments on the company’s social media properties.
  5. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
