The web is the most common place to complain

According to a UK survey by Lightspeed Research, customers are now making complaints about brands more often on the web than on the phone. It is far more common among 18-34 year-olds to complain on Facebook than among older consumers (15% compared to 5% and 4%).

    This isn’t surprising at all, as social media sites are used by so many people. It is easier to complain online and expect a fast response, so companies have to pay attention, listen, and act fast. Companies should always be aware of what’s being said, and make sure they utilize social media to their customers’ advantage.
