Social Networking Sites

Online networking and online social bookmarking are more popular now than ever. But its hard to know which social network is right for you if you haven't tried all of them. This is why many Internet users find social network reviews valuable.

When reading the reviews, however, you may find vastly different judgments about their content. Many folks fight for their choice of online social networking sites vehemently. That may be due, however, to being unaware of all the available options, so they invested all their time without further investigation. Some people defend their choice without even knowing the differences Online social networks , like LibraryThing have book reviews and other features created just for people who love to read.

Many social media users arent aware of the difference between one form of social networking and another because there is a tremendous amount of cross-over in the platforms. Sites such as MySpace can be used just for fun or for serious business networking, or both! And there are literally tens of thousands of Ning sites, such as bookmarket.ning , which specialize in narrow niches. These type of [online social networking] sites are significant because theyre completely user-driven and allow focused conversations surrounding peoples interests. Interests can be as specific as book aficionados, who now have many online communities geared just to them. social networking is social bookmarking, which has become very popular. Sites that feature social bookmarking, such as Mister Wong, allow logged-in users to save their online bookmarks for free. Social bookmarking sites also are a great help to Web searchers, because keyword tags that allow for easy searching can be assigned to each bookmark. Keyword tagging also makes social bookmarking sites of great interest to online marketers, because they know they will lead to backlinks for their sites. One social bookmark doesnt really mean anything in terms of backlinks but when you add them all together, they become influential in search engine rankings. Also, like with Digg, if a blog post is entered on one of these sites, it can often achieve high search engine rankings if the keywords were researched and the listing was entered correctly.

Email and Mobile - what blasts better?

The recent understanding goes that email blasts are obsolete - when you compare this with mobile SMS.

Naturally mobile is more on the move. It goes wherever one takes it. BUT how much can you feed into the mobile? How much colourful can you make it? How much easy on the eye can you really bring it?

And then does email really work inspite of it rating above than mobile on certain parameters.

The truth is that the possibilities of what mobile can offer are only growing, and rapidly. The channel offers direct marketing at its best: reach to a mass or targeted audience virtually anywhere, a remarkably high "open-rate," and the ability to drive specific, instant action. It is unfiltered. It is intimate. It is relevant. And it is quite understandable why marketers who so often turn to email are uncomfortable. Instead of shunning it and living in denial, a better approach is to add mobile as a weapon to your consumer interaction arsenal, and make both avenues collectively stronger.

Mobile and email: Complementary, not competitive.
Mobile offers what marketers have long wanted: direct access to the consumer any time. It acts a strong ally to the email channel, which will continue to be a primary digital communication mechanism, with a richer interaction. Combining the two paths can give a brand a cohesive strategy that naturally deepens awareness, drives stronger engagement, and in the process, delivers increased value to the consumer.

What say?
