Social Media Boundaries Merge

Social Media Boundaries Merge

When social media hits town, it’s time to pay attention. What are the the big players are up to?
 
Quite frankly, the boundaries between Facebook, Twitter and Google+ seem to be merging every day.
 
Here are some recent developments in the social media marketplace.
 

  • Google, the search engine powerhouse, is becoming more like Facebook, the social media giant with the arrival of its Google+ social media platform.

 

  • Facebook is becoming more like Twitter with the opportunity now to follow non friends.

 

  • Twitter is now joining Facebook by having paid adverts on it’s site.

 

  • Facebook has adjusted it’s privacy settings, so you can choose what you share with whom. The timing of this closely follows the introduction of  the Google+ circles, which allows choices for privacy settings. It looks a rapid response from Facebook which had been receiving pressure following the earlier opening up of its privacy restrictions.

 
With all these moves and counter moves going on in social media, there is a temptation to think the inevitable.
 
Is it just a matter of time before all three offer practically identical services?
 
We will have to wait to discover the answer.
 
However, with such strong social media brands, Google+ Facebook and Twitter should all stand the test of time, even we end up with a similar service offering as a result of the competition for users.
 
Social media clearly is a good market to be in, with the worlds’ social media appetite continuing to grow and fuel demand.
 
This means more revenues from advertising and potential share flotations, so odds are high for even bigger and better social media services in a few years time.
 
The Google+ brand, although newer, looks to be setting some new rules and bringing welcome changes.
 
The good news is that Facebook and Twitter are not resting on their laurels either.
 
They are quick to respond to the new social media kid on the block.
 
So which social media buttons will you be adding to your websites and blogs?
 
I think we all know the answer to that one – all three, and probably more.
 
Enjoy your social media moments.

    Stephen Johnson was introduced to me by a mutual friend and I’m so glad he was! We have had a website for a couple of years and we used it mainly as a reference for people we met to find out more about us. Most of our business came from referral. From my experience this is the case with many SMEs. Earlier this year, 2011, we decided to change our approach as see how successful we could be at attracting business via search marketing. We chatted our objectives through with Steve who quickly grasped what we were trying to do....

    Stephen Johnson was introduced to me by a mutual friend and I’m so glad he was! We have had a website for a couple of years and we used it mainly as a reference for people we met to find out more about us. Most of our business came from referral. From my experience this is the case with many SMEs. Earlier this year, 2011, we decided to change our approach as see how successful we could be at attracting business via search marketing. We chatted our objectives through with Steve who quickly grasped what we were trying to do. Within the space of a few hours we had a plan which was implemented over the next week and I have to say the results have been spectacular. In the six months since implementing the changes visitor numbers have increased by 43%. The number of visitors arriving at our site from searches including our chosen keywords have increased by 500%. The real proof of the pudding though is the number of calls and sales we get from our site both of which have increased substantially. Not only is Steve’s work really effective he is a pleasure to work with. Friendly, bright and calm. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone looking to boost their business through search engine marketing.

We needed a new website in order to attract more clients and candidates and in the background to increase our social media presence. Steve really understood the needs of our business and has created a fantastic website that looks extremely professional. He has always been on the end of the phone when we needed him, kept us fully informed of his progress and gave excellent training on how to manage the website. We would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a quality and fully optimised website....
