Jones Soda Social Audit for PR+MKTG Camp in Seattle

I have posted the case as an example of identifying influencers over social media. In this case, the influencer is the channel. In this case, we presented with Mike Spear, Jone’s Interactive Brand Manager. Here is the slideshare link as I cannot upload to this post, so here is the link:
