UberKristen Grenga, Uber

No matter where our users are contacting us, we make sure they are getting answers quickly, that those interactions are easy, and that they end in resolution. Social channels are full service resolution channels for us because we must be there for our customers however they reach out.

It’s very humanizing and it falls in line with a company value of ours: put our users first. Social care is one of the best examples of how we live out this value each day.
