Adobe Social

Adobe Social is not worth the money if you are looking for a publishing or moderation tool. If and when the reporting is improved, it could be worth a second look.

Software still too buggy. Have been working on a bug fix since April of this year

Social moves at the speed of light, Adobe Social doesn't. I found posting via the system very cumbersome.

The Adobe support team is really helpful. We have recently gone through a number of account reps since our favorite rep was promoted off of our account, so we are hoping for better service in our newest rep.

Training was long and a little confusing. While a number of features carried over, they were still covered in this elongated training. It would have been nice to have training tailored to experience level with the product.

Implementation

Adobe Social 5.0
Based on 1 answer
The implementation was done during our POC. We had a very mixed experience here, and have had some issues arise since based on the way the tool was implemented. An Adobe employee went ahead and made a change to our account that was unauthorized (helpful for our implementation) which caused issues in on boarding another team who needed the same change, but could not get it done without costly Adobe certification

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Social

Originally started with Radian 6 for social listening, however, it requires way too much hands-on time for small teams. Again, a robust systems for large B2C and ecommerce sites.

SAP Cloud for Social Engagement

The SAP solution is more complete than others because it includes capabilities for social media listening, real-time social media message response, social profiles and history, and analytics in one system.
