The power of social media is being felt in virtually all aspects of our lives today. We have seen its power to build and we have also seen its power to pull down institutions even governments. Many brands are now finding clever ways to tap into these resources through endorsements and product placement using individuals or organizations that have built a reputation with an online audience.
