Word-of-mouth is an effective way for consumers to seize control on
some business decisions
12/29/11 Press Release:
“Starting January 15, a new $2 payment
convenience fee will be instituted for
customers who make single bill
payments online or by telephone”
Within 24 hours, more than 100,000 people
had signed a online petition: …. Your company
should not assume that it can do anything to
your customers and that we will allow it to
happen…
12/30/11 Press Release:
“Verizon Wireless has decided it will not institute
the fee for online or telephone single payments
that was announced earlier this week.
The company made the decision in response to
customer feedback about the plan…”

Some Telcos are even proactive in understanding services issues by
trolling social networks to understand sources of dissatisfaction
O2's Twitter team
demonstrate their
social media moves
on angry tweeters
London, July2012
O2 UK experienced widespread network
problems affecting hundreds of
thousands of its customers in July 2012,
user anger was boiling over, with many
customers expressing their
dissatisfaction on Twitter. O2, however,
turned the tides, by using Twitter to
deliver fast, professional customer
response and was able to maintain their
brand image by adding humor and
personality to their tweets
23
Having the official verified Twitter
profile @Airtel_Presence, Airtel scan
for every tweet containing the word
“airtel” in it and giving appropriate
replies to customers and solving their
issues.
Airtel uses social network analysis to
determine customers’ facing problems.
Any mention on social media
(Facebook, Orkut, Twitter, etc.) is
captured and they get in touch with the
customer to get issues resolved.
