This article discusses metrics that online marketers can use as benchmarks that determine whether their social media efforts are paying off or not:

• Sharing of voice. It is the online marketers’ duty to make it a point that their brands’ presence can compete with other brands’ image in the industry. This has something to do with the size of their audience, followers, and fans.
• Acknowledging advocates. Engaging and leveraging the loyalty of avid followers, re-tweeters, and pinners for the brand kicks businesses into higher gear.
