It makes people talk about your brand, although this needs careful management as this allows negative comments as well. At least you can quickly answer these queries both they escalate and you can deal with them speedly so that customers are not left waiting for a response for weeks over the post.

Furthermore it allows you to listen to your customers through their posts and comments. Being and active social media “listener” means that you can look for trends and possible wants that a customer of yours might need.
