Social Media Marketing February 3rd, 2010
Welcome to the January 2010 edition of Social Media Monthly Round Up. In recent years the web and especially social media has started a communication revolution that has changed the way we live and work on web. Since its birth and over the last few years when it has grown in both stature and reach, social media has become all-encompassing. Now more so to the extent that we can say that it is more than just sharing information. Realizing social medias real power Google has integrated Social Search within its interface.
Most people are using social media to offer their interests and opinions, their ideas, theories and whatever they feel worth sharing to the online community. For this reasons it is clear to see how social media among online users is skyrocketing and content is become incredibly topical.
According Hitwise study report “Facebook” is the top search term in 2009. In fact, four variations of the term "Facebook" were among the top 25 terms. Facebook moved up from the 10th position in 2008 to the top position in 2009.
Looking at the trend you can see that no social marketing site has grown as fast as Facebook over the last year. We can also see that MySpace has declined while Twitter while still below MySpace has had a reasonable surge as well.
Think Facebook is just a fad? Think again! Look at the dramatic improvement made by Facebook in just one year! Facebook is virtually identical to Yahoo! and not very far behind Google. At this rate we should see Facebook overtake even Google at some point in 2010.
That all in this edition folks.
