Social Media Marketing & Management
So, you don’t know anything about social media? Let me explain.
Starting with Myspace
First, there was Myspace, long before companies become engaged in social media. It was a way for individuals to have their own personal space on the web, except some say in reality it was a plot that a guy named Tom made in order to instantly gain billions of friends.
Facebook Crushes Myspace
Since Tom demonstrated his ability to use the internet to gain billions of friends and provide a way for people to connect virtually, others started catching on. The second person to have major success was a guy named Mark Zuckerberg. He created something called “The Facebook”, which was re-titled to “Facebook” before it blew up into what is now the most visited social media website in the US. This pretty much took over Myspace’s users.
Twitter Tweets Make Some Noise
Then, a bunch of birds got together and decided to create a website called Twitter, so anyone can do what birds like to do – Tweet to the whole world and not just their circle of friends. This time, something different happened. Twitter become known all around the world, yet it did not take over Facebook. Both Facebook and Twitter continued to succeed.
Everyone Gets Involved
From there, everyone decided to create a social media website. From Google, the leading internet search giant, to individuals programming in their parents’ basement, people were working on creating the next big “social media” website. Throughout the next several years, everything went haywire and social media websites started popping up all over the map.
Popular Social Sites Today
Today, there are hundreds of social media websites out there, but it is ultimately the users who dictate which ones become popular. Some of today’s most popular social media websites and apps include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, and Google+.
How do we navigate this confusing digital world of social media?! Hire some birds to send off some Tweets? Can birds create strategies? No, that is not the solution.
