Social listening

Module purpose

Marketers often think of social media as a channel where they can share content and product offers through updates on social networks. Yet, social media users will see the purpose of social media very differently; as a way to have conversations with friends, families and colleagues about their interests.

In this module, we explore these two different ways of thinking about social media overlap in the marketing activity known as social listening where marketers use social media as a research tool to understand what their audiences are discussing; what they’re interested in.
