Brands still do not respond in time to consumers in social networksData released in mid-December at the Sprout Social Index indicated that in 2013 marks registered up to 175% more requests than the previous year;which has completely overwhelmed their ability to react. Thus, 80% of customers remains unanswered, reversing in frustration and loss of confidence in the brand.

Much remains until the marks truly use social channels as a tool to serve their customers effectively. Data released in August by SocialBakers also appeared from deficiencies in customer service through social networks by enterprises, indicating that they were responding to little more than half of the requests in Facebook, where average response exceeded 13 hours.

Inevitably, given the increasing number of requests, the reaction times increasingly expand more. PuroMarketing data indicate that 21% of customers received their answer more than one day after trying to contact the company through Social Media. A period should be shortened to a maximum of two hours; an acceptable time, considering that the immediacy is one of the main features of social networks.
