Social media websites growing in popularity

According to a recent Nielsen report, usage of social networking websites or blogs increased by 43 per cent from June 2009 to June 2010. The main culprit? Facebook, of course. In second place was online gaming, while e-mail placed third. Facebook was by far the most popular social networking site, with 84.8 per cent of all online networking activities, followed by MySpace at 5.6 per cent. Twitter and Blogger (the free online blogging platform that uses “blogspot” in its web addresses) were tied for third at 1.1 per cent. If you or your company are looking to connect with customers, then Facebook is where it’s at. Like it or not, you basically have no choice. Not having a Facebook presence in this day and age is like not having a website or telephone number.
