Digital media is a fluid and ever-expanding source for entertainment, news, shopping and social interaction, which consumers are now exposed not just to what your company says about your brand, but what the media, friends, relatives etc., are saying as well. And they are more likely to believe them than you.
People want companies they can trust.
