A social media expert with global experience with many of the world's biggest brands - including Nike, Toyota, and Motorola - Simon Mainwaring offers a visionary new practice in which brands leverage social media to earn consumer goodwill, loyalty, and profit, while creating a third pillar of sustainable social change through conscious contributions from customer purchases.
These innovative private sector partnerships answer perhaps the most pressing issue facing business and thought leaders today: how to practice capitalism in a way that satisfies the need for both profit and a healthy, sustainable planet. Mainwaring provides case studies from companies such as P&G, Wal-Mart, Starbucks, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Toyota, Nike, Whole Foods, Patagonia, and Nestlé, as well as a bold plan for how corporations need to rethink their strategies.

"A must-[listen] for those who want to understand and engage the power and potential of social media to promote a healthier, more equitable world." (Kirkus)
I found this book to be sown with liberal political undertones and anti-capitalist sentiment. Not what I was looking for.
