Facebook, MySpace and Twitter are names you hear in the news everyday and you may very well be getting emails from friends asking you to join. These websites are part of the growing Internet phenomenon known as Social Media Marketing and they are now a permanent part of the Internet and its business marketing. Google has put in a bid to buy YELP.com, which is a website filled with business advertisements similar to an online yellow pages, but it has a social media marketing aspect to it that allows any member of Yelp (free to join) to make a comment about any business listing found on their website. Is your business on Facebook, Myspace, Twitter or Yelp?
Social network websites allow businesses and individuals to build a public profile, create a list of website users with whom they share a common connection like owning a business in Seattle, using an IPhone, buying Chanel perfume or being a friend of John L. Sullivan of Los Angeles, California and once the list is created the list is then open for viewing and communication by fellow members (free to join) of Facebook, MySpace, etc.
