Web application and design company Go-Gulf has created an infographic which summarizes data from Ragan Communications on how organizations structure their social media teams. Sadly, it seems, social media is not yet seen as an integral component of an organization with 65% of companies reporting social media tasks being performed on top of current job responsibilities and 25% rely on interns to help with aspects of social media.

While 22% of companies plan to hire staff to handle social media, 78% do not. And of those companies that are hiring, 47% prefer 1-3 years of experience. As many companies haven't yet fully embraced social media and those that have do not appear to be giving much priority to it, it's not surprising just 5% of companies report being highly satisfied with their social media efforts.

In terms of social media success metrics, 86% of companies still measure ROI based on followers and likes. More encouraging, 40% base success on new leads and 31% attribute success based on sales.
