Social is more than just right now.

Is there value to our Social Media history? SocialSafe says yes.

Social Media is all about this minute, hour or day and all the tools we usually use, whether to post messages or review what others are saying, our tools are focussed on the real time feed. But what happens when today becomes yesterday, last week, last month, last year? Is there value in our social history and if so what should we do about it?
