A conceptual stages-of-growth model for managing a social media business profile

Introduction Social media are used by organisations for marketing, advertising, public relations, recruitment, research, product/ service testing and review, idea generation, feedback, and occasionally, complaint handling ( Aggarwal et al., 2011 ; Aral et al., 2013 ). However, this has ‘barely scratched the surface of what is coming and what is possible’ ( Aral et al., 2013 : 3).

in the context of family businesses. Ransburg, Sage-Hayward, and Schuman duly address this knowledge vacuum in presenting family business HR strategies, supplemented by frameworks and tools for managing such strategies effectively.

Colquitt (2001) shows that an employee will determine the fairness of management policy in line with what procedures are in place. Frenkel et al.

current global economy, manufacturers are under pressure to adapt continuously to the ever-changing business environment (e.g. globalisation, environmental legislation, change in customer behaviour, trends towards purchasing services as distinct from products). Manufacturers can no longer rely on the traditional product-focused business models; they need to be highly adaptive and innovative in order to compete. Dodgson et al. (2005) propose that a range of new technologies, such as simulation and modelling tools, virtual reality, data mining and rapid prototyping

targeted pension information was highlighted in a recent EU peer-reviewed report on pension communication.

While the individual looking for information is trying to identify a pension product to meet his
