Social media

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Social media is online content created by people using highly accessible and scalable publishing technologies. Social media is a shift in how people discover, read and share news, information and content; it’s a fusion of sociology and technology, transforming monologues (one to many) into dialogues (many to many) and is the democratization of information, transforming people from content readers into publishers. Social media has become extremely popular because it allows people to connect in the online world to form relationships for personal, political and business use. Businesses also refer to social media as user-generated content (UGC) or consumer-generated media (CGM).

My definition Social media = Gold Mine of our time!

Perry is a Internet Marketing Super-Guru and he has figured out a way to get at least a dollar from everyone he is connected to via these sites.  He is going to make over 1,000,000 dollars in a couple days from this system.  He has limited seats to his program but he is a master so if you want to learn more about professional social media networking check it out.  “Social Media Money System”

    @bbrian017

    Everyone thanks for all the comments!

    My favorite is twitter that is about the only one I visit daily. I don't really submitt my stuff either. Except when I 1st post. I try to establish a consistent profile on all these and then use friend feed to pipe stuff in to them. Twitter is really good for connecting with new people. I try to spend most my time on my site. I like to get as much soical media on autopilot as possible.

    Facebook is too busy for me but I feed it my blog post and my del bookmarks but so many are on it so you can't ignore it. My Facebook seem active. Another tip is to link all you profile sites links back to your about page or blog. Everyone has there favorite tools. Once you figure out how to get them all feeding from one source then you can really distribute your content to the masses with only one action.

    Jared,

    So far I have found that Twitter is my #1 referral site, but facebook is quickly catching up. I personally prefer facebook because of the viral nature of the news feed.

    My plan is to keep working on building my followers/friends on just these two networks for the remainder of the month. Any tips on the best way to build up a targeted audience?

    It seems like youtube would be the next logical step, but I am not ready to make videos yet.

    Thanks,
