The Road Ahead for Digital and Social

It’s been a long month for digital and social media.

During Hurricane Harvey, Bass Pro Shops contributed 80 boats and additional funds to assist in clean-up and rescue. Anheuser-Busch stopped beer production at its Georgia plant to produce 50,000 cans of water to send to Red Cross shelters in Louisiana. JPMorgan Chase and Humana Foundation each donated $1 million to support relief efforts for Hurricane Irma. How did they so quickly determine their response and what they would do to
