August 25, 2014 | Alyssa Greve: Social Media Audits and why they’re important

One of the first things that must be done is a social media audit when starting to look at your social strategy. A social media audit is where we take a look at the current social channels and accounts associated with your brand and the plan behind each one. We also review how each channel is supported and who is engaging with each community. This gives us a larger vision to see how social media is managed internally and how it has grown over the past few years.

We understand well how to make a custom button interact with a Visualforce page on the standard page layouts in a desktop browser.  But how do we do that same functionality in Salesforce1?

This will help you stay knowledgeable of current news and how they could potentially impact your brand.
