Dachis Group Launches Business Index

Austin-based Dachis Group, the social business consultancy headed by Jeffrey Dachis and funded by Austin Ventures, said today that it has launched a "Social Business Index", which it says will provide a ranking, analysis, and benchmark of social business adoption. The firm said its index will measure the social performance of businesses by analyzing the social graph of customers, employees, partners, and influencers.
