â–¶ Socially Attuned Consumers Wield High Influence: One in five consumers polled for the 2012 American Express Global Customer Service Barometer said they’ve used social media at least once in the last year to obtain a customer service response, and this group of consumers is extremely engaged and vocal. Study highlights include: • Consumers who have used social media for service wield the greatest amount of influence, telling three times as many people about positive service experiences compared to the general population. • Social media for service consumers spend 21% more with companies that deliver great service—compared to 13% on average. • These consumers feel companies are getting better at social media service: 60% feel that companies have improved their response times through social media over the past year.
