Element 1 – Tone of Messaging
The tone of messaging is formal.
Element 2 – Are they sending canned responses, without understanding the context?
Citibank does not seem to send a canned response. They responded after clearly understanding the context. The only drawback is that they do not allow customers to post on their Facebook page. As a result the posts on the page seems to have a lot of complaints which is unrelated to the posts.
Element 3 – Turnaround Time
Citibank has a turn around time of less than 30 minutes.
Element 4 – Is brand sending personalized replies?
The brand sends personalized replies.
Element 5 – Is brand following up on the complaints?
Consider the case of a customer complaint.

In this complaint the matter was followed up and resolved. The customer came back with a thank you note.

Element 6 – Is brand answering to all the queries?
No. Not all queries are answered. The bank selectively responds to queries.
Element 8 – Is brand sending duplicate replies?
No instance of duplicated replies.
In summary, as a customer complaining to the bank will be a bit confusing. Due to multiple handles, whether to tag @Citibank or @Citi or the dedicated customer care handle @AskCiti will be confusing. Also as mentioned earlier, customers were not allowed to post to the page. As a result the brand post received a lot of unrelated complaints as a comment to the posts.
