I had the opportunity to interview Mike Krigsman and Vala Afshar at the NMX Conference about their views on the intersection of the social consumer and businesses. What do businesses need to understand about the social consumer? What mistakes are they making? And what does it look like when business do a great job of interacting with the social consumer. These two experts share their insights with me.
