Financial advisors and social media: Bullish or bearish?

As part of the Putnam-sponsored survey of Financial Advisors' Use of Social Media conducted in partnership with FTI Consulting, advisors were asked if their use of social media had increased or decreased year-over-year.

Of respondents using social media for business purposes, 75% said their use of the four leading social networks had increased.


The research generated a surprising amount of candid feedback from advisors.
