Almost every time I ask a Facebook user who is not a marketer if they ever interact with Facebook ads, I get the same response – “Facebook has ads?” That is one of the beauties of Facebook advertising in that they do not appear to be ads at all but rather engaging content.

Not surprising, social media is no longer a fad.

They essentially center around budget, lack of contributors and not feeling they have anything to say.
In part four of a series on why companies are slow to embrace social media, corporate red tape and multiple layers of bureaucracy is often the culprit that literally ties the hands of marketers. I have seen this occur time and time again with regards to search marketing projects. It is no surprise then that it would occur equally as much if not more when social media marketing is brought up.
In part three of a series on why companies are slow to embrace social media, budget or lack thereof comes into play.
