The survey in the attached article isn’t about funeral service and, frankly, most funeral homes aren’t engaged in social media…sad.  And I can assure you that over 90% are using it inappropriately.  Be that as it may, here are some interesting points about the topic that may help you avoid some of the same pitfalls.

Vocus teamed up with Duct Tape Marketing to survey 400 decision makers at small- and medium-sized businesses to learn about their struggles and successes using social media.
