Social Costumer Lifetime Value – what we are to firms and brands

Many people work with different social network platforms: The more networks, the more connections, the higher Social Customer Lifetime Value.

As companies look to maximize the impact of every marketing investment, a focus on Social Customer Lifetime Value may well become the most important metric of all. Social Customer Lifetime Value not only incorporates individual purchases (all purchases a person does with the firm X minus the cost of goods sold to this person, the net present value of this amount) but also those who influenced each customer.

The more connections, the more SCLTV.

For example, the customer who consistently influences the purchases of 5–10 friends and coworkers would have a higher Social Customer Lifetime Value than one who

The more connections, the more SCLTV

spends more individually but has little or no influence on others.  Facebook is promoting this metric via Faceconnector and Hearseylab.
At the same time, by using social network platforms, users become more transparent to platform owners. This allows the platform owners to show the users ads that exactly match their interests. E.g. if the platform owner would like to advertise Hindu books, they would only show the ad in user accounts where the account owner e.g. wrote that his or hers religion is Hinduism.

What do you think about this concept fo SCLV?  Does it make sense or is it just another Social Media push?

What dis/advatages do you see in the fact that users become more and more transparent to platform owners?
