Forms of Social Media

 

Social media comes in the form of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, forums and blogging sites.

Facebook and Twitter generate a social network platform for many companies. You can create pages and encourage consumers and fans to “like” the page. The more content you post on your page, the more “buzz” gets generated around your company and brand. Twitter has grown rapidly recently, with hash tag trends becoming the talk of the online realm. Hash tags enable you to find other people with similar interests. If you have an interest in a trend then you can share this with many others – don’t forget it’s a global phenomenon so you can interact with people from all countries, backgrounds and cultures. It really is a way to get creative online.

If your company wants to get creative and attract a wider range of consumers and fans then it may be worthwhile for you to set up a blog. You can use websites such as Tumblr, Blogger and Wordpress. A blog is a fantastic way of generating content for anyone to view around the world. The more content you produce then the more traffic you are going to generate and this is great for building an online presence.

Forums are also a great way to spread the word about your company, find out what is of interest on the internet and to drive traffic to your website.
