Social Media and America’s Favorite Cookie

Charles Darwin once said, “In the long history of humankind, those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.” Social media has emerged as perhaps the most effective way to collaborate with both people and businesses, and allows individual voices to be heard loud and clear. But how do we use it? What can it do for me as a customer, and what does it do for me as a business?

Let’s take a look at Oreo cookies. With over 26 million “likes” on Facebook, 40,000 followers on Twitter, and a fan base to make the Yankees look like an Alaskan little league team, Oreo has skyrocketed to the top of social media influence. Yet with such a huge following, you won’t even find a store locator or drop ship option on their Facebook page. In fact, most of the content on the page is provided by Oreo lovers, cookie junkies, and double stuffed addicts. That’s because Oreo understands what social media is about: community.
