Wells Riley wrote “The Facebook IPO is melting, LinkedIn is stagnant, and Twitter is under fire by developers. New platforms like Medium, Branch, Zerply Converse, and Svbtle are popping up everywhere, with an entirely new model for social interaction. Instead of creating profiles, “The new social” seems to be more content-focused” Do you agree? What is your take and in that take would you agree? When you log on or rather, when you decided to create a social media account what was your purpose, lets discuss this to oneself out loud or with a few friends? Was your intention to create it to network and make new friends or to get a deal or kind of blog about how you feel and or share what you did or are doing for uninvited but needed feed back?
I did all the above not necessarily for shock value but for feed back like will people things the though of this crazy before I do it or was what I did that no one know crazy? I liked to network but I do not believe I have fully used the benefit of say LinkedIn and I agree although with new benefits it has become somewhat stagnant and Facebook I am on and off activating and deactivating so much one can say i’m not consistently motivated by that platform but as new social media platforms sprout about I am encouraged to thing that the technology is still in its infancy and things are still ever evolving. Some of the giants today I do not believe will be giants tomorrow just look and AOL or Yahoo, 10 -12 years ago you would never think that Yahoo would one dat be fighting for its survival and 16-18 years ago no way would you think AOL would would be a fraction of itself and not the biggest, baddest, best way to communicate and chat with family and friends no way, right? So now lets consider the giants today, that could change.
Human behavior changes this, the young get old and the new bring the new and its exciting. Changes in both technology and behavior will dictate what remains relevant and or what’s next.
