The social ecosystem model provides an effective organizational blueprint for social media adoption. Because social media marketing is inherently advocacy-based, it depends on authentic, two-way interactions, peer recommendations, and earned media to succeed. Employees are empowered under a social ecosystem framework to engage across channels as authentic brand ambassadors. This ecosystem has three pillars: (1) the social governance council (SGC), (2) the employee experience (EX), and (3) the customer experience (CX). Through a focus on guidance, listening, and learning by the SGC, employees become the bridge between brand and customer, resulting in improved business outcomes and greater brand value.
