We asked 2,714 communicators how their companies use social media in our Ragan/NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions survey, and Go-Gulf.com highlighted some of the findings in an infographic.

Here's a peek at what we found:

  • Forty-two percent of companies have only one person who works on social media. Forty percent have two or three.
  • Twenty-five percent of companies have interns help with social media.
  • Only 5 percent of companies are highly satisfied with their social media campaigns.
  • Almost 90 percent (86 percent) of companies measure social media in terms of likes and followers.
  • The biggest obstacles to measuring social media are a lack of time (65 percent) and manpower (63 percent).
