The days of having a website, putting up content about your business, and then leaving it stagnant for years on the web are over. We live in the age of
social network developemntand
Web 2.0, and we are rapidly approaching
Web 3.0. In this wave of interactivity, the focus of the web is centralized on networking amongst peers on social websites such as
yelp, and many others.
What gave foundation to
social networkinginitially was blogging. A blog is a site maintained by an entity for the purpose of having a forum to communicate ideas about a particular subject to the world at large. These have nothing to do with news, they are not meant to represent fairness or equality or right or wrong they are simply places for people to comment and other people to respond in real time. In 2007 there were an estimated 112 million blogs.
The next step in the evolution of the blog was the
social network. It was a blog that had the feature of allowing people or companies to create their own pages that they could represent information about the individual or company, these pages are known as profiles. Profiles in some cases are private and you must ask to enter and other times they are public, meaning you get to choose who sees your information and who interacts with you and your friends.
Social Networkingis real-time bi-directional communication between nothing less than the people of the world. What this creates is a simple easy to use forum for people to say what they feel when they feel it without spin.
In the business world this has brought survival of the fittest to a new level. Prior to this level of communication International companies and politicians could hide behind huge advertising budgets and all the while have bad products? Those days are going, Fast.
Now the playing field is leveled. If there are better products and services available in a community the community based business will be able to say it as loud as a mass marketer. And if a major supplier starts to sell bad products and indulge in predatory practices your local neighborhood business will be able to tell you, now, today and just as loud as any major retailer.
