I finally finished reviewing all the major social networks. The purpose of putting this blog together was to organize and prioritize the social media sites I was using. I also wanted to do some research on all of them to learn more about the history, and take a more conscious look at the features and opportunities each network presented its users.
I also was curious about how many users some of these sites were able to obtain at their peak, and how much the networks sold for. Researching and organizing this information gave me a lot of awareness of the competitive and fleeting nature of the success that some of these giant networks face. Trends in social media are undoubtedly a rapidly changing thing and as unpredictable as the individuals who use them. Innovators are rewarded, but optimizers sometimes are rewarded the most.
My reviews of social media networks include a brief history, an explanation of the networks primary purpose, some pro’s and con’s I found while using the network, and a brief editorial review of my experience on the site. At the end of each post I linked my social media profile for that particular network, so anybody wishing to connect with me is welcome and able to.
I hope you find these reviews of social media networks to be helpful in putting the social media industry into perspective. Social media is an unavoidable powerhouse of sharing information and improving human communication and connectivity around the globe, and must be embraced. However, with trends changing as fast as they are, no one can get comfortable with their knowledge or position on any particular social media network. Audiences either lose interest, or are dividing their time amongst more niched networks as opposed to the most popular networks that lack in innovative features and offer a lesser user experience because of being filled with advertisements.
I look forward to joining and connecting with you on social media, whatever new sites and networks present themselves. Please connect with me online, and check back to this site regularly for updates on how social media is trending and how those changes will affect you individually as well as how it affects the personal and business climate around you.
Thanks for reading,
