If you are active on Twitter you will have experienced being followed by spam accounts. These vast networks of spammers also appear when undertaking social data analysis (as we do as a core part of our business).

At KINSHIP we are excited and proud to see our client and friends at the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV) yesterday officially launch the first Social Media Command Centre in Vietnam. This was a great achievement by the BIDV SMCC Project Team as they not only developed and implemented a whole new content strategy for the bank and implemented complex locally-developed monitoring software but they also designed and project managed the physical SMCC construction and fit-out, and developed a fantastic promotional launch video (see below). All this in about 10 weeks!
