"What goals are you trying to accomplish with your social media presence? Select key performance indicators (KPIs) that tie to your overall marketing strategies. If you’re trying to increase traffic to your website through social, look at social media referrals on Google Analytics. If you’re trying to promote year-round engagement and in-depth discussion with your audience, focus on Twitter @mentions, Facebook comments and shares, as well as comments on LinkedIn as measures of success." (McDonnell 2013)
