Twitter is also good, like the rest the user just has to put in reasonable time and effort in advertising.The best social networking sites that can expand and promote your business are Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc. You can try all of these to promote your business and I'm sure you will get a decent response. I use Pinterest for my personal use and it works good for me.
Yup I'm sorry I forgot to include that giant. Twitter is also one of the best ways to promote stuff. It might also get you insane amount of visitors around the globe.Twitter is also good, like the rest the user just has to put in reasonable time and effort in advertising.
Why I don't exactly like this feature on Facebook, it makes tracking of it's user's very simple, almost everyone has a Facebook account and are always logged in to use it, mean while other search engines it is not compulsory to actually sign in to the account.Nice thoughts miss Challengewriter!
In fact, with the real world scenario what you thinks is on facebook.
even me and you, other guys posting here even this forum might be on facebook.
Facebook search button is itself works like Search Engines and behaves likes it. It is expanding into it and will have a major winning ideas later in the future when it will supposed to kill other Search Engines business like Google and Yahoo.
I think back then, the "social media" term was not yet used and the term "social networking sites" was used. That's why there's a movie called "Social Network" which is about how Facebook came to existence which starred Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, and Andrew Garfield.What do you refer to? What do you mean by social networking? If you are referring to social media, technically they are not same as networking.
Now I agree with your point that Facebook is mostly used as entertainment and chating rather than business deals. But it can helps in marketing and getting unique visitors.I don't brave being line on Facebook to chat with people, I put it off, Facebook is like a news centre to me, I got there to read bizzare stories, keep up with the pages I have liked and play games, Facebook has become a lot business oriented.
Facebook can be a good way to gain unique visitors. But I am also using Google+ which is a good site to gain visitors as well. My visitors skyrocketed after sharing my blogs in Google+. Even more than Facebook.Now I agree with your point that Facebook is mostly used as entertainment and chating rather than business deals. But it can helps in marketing and getting unique visitors.
