The Changing World of Social Media [Infographic] - Page 2
Even the giant, Google, has thrown their hat into the social media ring of making their own social media site. In fact, President Obama used G+ Hangouts to perform the first all-virtual interview with U.S citizens. However, G+ has not been keeping up with the rest of them. For example, in April Google shut down their popular photo editing site: Picnik.
In January, Pinterest was named Best New Startup of 2011 and referred more business than Linkedin, YouTube, and Google+. Who would have thought a site that requires an invite could do better than ones that do not. Pinterest, if you haven’t heard, is basically a virtual pinboard. You can pin pictures to different boards you have created and keep all of your ideas and inspiration in one place. Pinterest is the newcomer of social media sites - a title that Facebook once held.
Social Media is more than a trend, it is a huge power in the world of 2012 and it keeps growing. It is hard to look at the future of social media and predict the next new trend that will take the world by storm. The future of social media can even be seen through the social apps banking. It continues to grow in the mobile world and the SoCoMo (Social Media Cloud) will be unstoppable. These future trends are coming down the line and will ultimately change how we do business.
