With the proliferation of services like Facebook and Twitter, social media is certainly not a new concept. Even so, every day the medium continues to be leveraged in ways never thought possible to help businesses reach out to their customers for effective communication. How is social media being utilized in the financial services sectors today and what are the plans for tomorrow? How are creators, distributors and end users leveraging social media to solve problems and provide new opportunity? As social media continues to be utilized by businesses, how has the landscape of social media changed over time?
