What is Social Media and Why is it so Great?
Social media is quickly reaching critical mass and is commanding significant attention of the online world. So what IS social media, really? In a nutshell, it consists of web-based applications that allow creation, exchange, and rating of content by their users…you know, like MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn, Digg, and StumbleUpon.
So why are businesses taking such serious notice of social media? Simple…that’s where people are congregating these days. That means they can tap into them quicker, easier, and less expensively than the more traditional platforms they’ve been using.
Bottom line, businesses can use social media to see what people are saying about them, communicate directly with potential and established customers, provide users with valuable content related to their business category, and increase traffic to their websites. With all their social media buzzing, they can also improve their visibility online through higher rankings in the search engines and enhance their branding.
