Is Social Media Changing Business?
Social Media is changing the way business is conducted and evidence is mounting that it has now reached a critical mass and that all businesses need to develop a social media strategy and be actively involved in Social Media.
Social Media is using technology to create multi-directional conversations between people. The main Social Media technologies currently are Blogging, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Youtube. The real power of Social Media for business is the ability to leverage the networks of others and the social proof (people will do things that they see other people are doing) that results. The danger for business is the loss of control of their brand and what people are saying about it.
Facebook has now over 500 million users and social media is now the main activity on the internet.
