Forrester Research forecasts that B2B social media marketing spending will grow from just $11 million last year to $54 million in 2014. That’s still tiny compared to the total $2.3 billion Forrester said B2B companies spent on interactive marketing last year and the $4.8 billion they are expected to spend in 2014.
