Social Networking has become very popular during the past few years, but it can still be very difficult to understand for someone new to social networking. The open-ended nature of social networks add to this. Once signed onto a social network, having answered a few basic profile questions, it is easy to sit back and wonder what you are supposed to do next.
OK… Let me explain more. The easiest way to understand social networking is to think of it like high school. You had friends in school, and you knew quite a few people even if you weren’t friends with all of them, but it’s likely that you didn’t know everyone.
If you ever moved to a new school — or if you can imagine moving to a new school — you start out with no friends. After attending classes, you start meeting people, and as you meet them, you begin associating with those that have similar interests.
Getting started with social networking is much the same as starting at a new school. At first, you don’t have any friends. But as you join groups, you begin to meet people. People from different parts of the world and you build a friends list of those with similar interests.
Social Networking is evolving and changing rapidly. Especially mobile apps which is an on growing trend. Social networking apps such as whatsapp, line, wechat, blackberry messenger, twitter, skype vimeo, instagram and many more. Those apps has become essential communication tools for personal, professional, social, political works, relationship, business development and platform.
As we all know, social networking is a rapidly growing, headline-grabbing phenomenon. The question for entrepreneurs is how to tap into this trend as a business opportunity, rather than simply a way to connect—or reconnect—with people. Greg Sterling, of Sterling Market Intelligence, considers social network sites primarily for meeting people, asking for advice or referrals and, carefully, doing online marketing. The uses vary by application or site.
For example, instagram. Businesses can sell their product through instagram by posting a picture of their products on instagram and they will communicate with their buyers through the comments on the picture of the products.
It makes purchasing items more efficient. We don’t have to turn on our laptop to purchase the item online, we don’t have to go to the shop to purchase the item too. All we have to do is open an application in our phone and purchase the item.
