INFO: The increasing use of social media presents, for many, even more questions than answers. A 2009 survey of marketers by the Association of National Advertisers revealed that 66 percent of respondents were utilizing social media in 2009, up from 20 percent in 2007. No doubt the
numbers have escalated during the early months of 2010.
