- Transparency is a state of honest communications.
- Authenticity is a state of presenting.
- Sincerity is a state of being.
This soon translated in brand authenticity, further evolving the humanity of corporate culture and the resultant media.
So what's next?
If we think about human relationships, the truest form of communications is that of sincerity.
Which begs the question: Can a brand be sincere? What does a sincere brand look like? What are the components that define brand sincerity? Are there many/any sincere brands out there in the market?
How would you gauge your brand's presence in social media?
Where do you believe the social media early adopters like Dell, Comcast, Zappos, SouthWest, GM, Delta, Home Depot, Graco, Jet Blue Verizon and AT&T are best categorized? Are they transparent? Are they authentic? Are they sincere? Are they human? Or am I totally off?
