Back in the day, MySpace was some strange time-waster for teens and college students.
Then Facebook come along, almost single-handedly pushing MySpace out of existence. As well, picking up a tonne of first time social media users. All of a sudden, we started to think very differently about this social networking thing.
Soon enough, Facebook’s social counterpart Twitter came along and YouTube became the go-to site for social video. All three of these, of course could be linked and shared within each other.
Society seemed split on the hype. Some embraced the new social systems and others stood firm that it was simply a fad that would quickly die out.
Then all of a sudden, we couldn’t get away from those little Facebook thumb and Twitter bird icons!
They started appearing on everything from a coffee cup to ads in the newspaper. TV commercials and radio spots started promoting their social media pages more often than their own websites. Electronic devices went through major design changes to allow social media usage for people on the go.
Now with Linked-In, Google+, Pinterest and a wide variety of other up and coming networks; some are completely overwhelmed. Much like stock choices, diversifying your social networks can have great results.
However, it can be time-consuming. That’s why many larger businesses and ministries hire-on social media experts to simply focus on web-presence.
Perhaps, you’re the owner/leader of a not-so-large business or ministry and you’re struggling to find a solid web-presense? Maybe you’ve made the initial steps, but still not understanding how to maintain the presence you initially created?
