Social Media Networks Creating Change Every Day
It has been about a decade since social media networks really took hold of the internet and became the mainstream way for people to communicate online with friends and family all over the world. Originally, this is what social media was all about, but as commercial interests starting showing up and businesses began realizing the power social media held, networks grew and everyone wanted a piece of the action.
The days of the customer service phone call were over and customers knew they could contact their favorite businesses directly through social media on a wide range of digital devices. It was easier and it made more sense. Business could then target their advertising campaigns with more precision through social media networks such as Facebook, MySpace and many more.
As social media grew even more popular with businesses, many internet giants started their own social media networks and with the technological advancements that were being made online, social media networks could develop improvised systems and tools making user experience even better. Social media sites could be developed using unique themes, definitive purposes and other aspects that would make them stand out. Sharing pictures, improvised messenger and chatting, professional networking, sharing music files and several other purposes have led way to variety of sites.
As far as internet marketing is concerned, Twitter was the first site to really develop it. With all of the celebrities tweeting every minute of their lives, Twitter has a lot of star power. Some sites, such as Instagram and Pinterest, excel as effective photo sharing platforms and offer strong marketing options that businesses can’t deny. Just sharing an info-graphic on any of these picture sharing site means a lot of promotion for a small business. Another site similar to Instagram in the way they upload and share photos, is Vine. Vine has taken off due to its simplistic approach to use and a very user friendly mobile platform.
There are many content sharing websites that are available to users today. These include Bubblews, a relatively new social media network has gone to the extent of sharing its revenues with users, and Ask.fm which has replaced Yahoo! Answers. With Google + still new too many internet users, the latest reports suggest that Google + has the ability to offer more factors that influence page rank and organic traffic.
Whatever the future of social media will be, we’re creating a change every day and night we’re on social media.
