“So, why does everyone love social media so much? Well, one of everyone’s favorite aspects of using social media is that it often comes with free advertising and free authentication. People can find you just by searching related keywords or tags. Then, they can friend or follow you, often leaving comments on your page or sending you messages about their trials this far and tribulations after finding your product or service. This is a way for people to authenticate your business, which is similar to word of mouth in that it is often more trustworthy than some certificate. After all, who do people trust more than their family, friends, and coworkers?”
For those of us who are still trying to “get it” as far as social media is concerned.
My most recent conclusion is that its something that you just “do”. Its almost as if it is purposeless. Mind you, friends and family are very important parts of our lives. They have purpose. Whether or not they had sushi last night may or may not be important, though.
