CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Aug. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Marketing organizations in highly regulated industries, such as pharmaceuticals and utilities, struggle to incorporate social media into their marketing plans effectively and safely. However, 50% of companies are proactively managing social media through content generation and monitoring on sites, such as Google, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Companies that proactively manage and generate content for social media as part of a marketing strategy employ about twice as many FTEs to manage social media as do companies with activities limited to content monitoring, according to "Best Practices for Using Social Media To Drive Business Outcomes," primary research conducted by Best Practices, LLC.
