WHY A BLOG IS STILL RELEVANT… MICROSOFT REP; ROBERT SCOBLE
“ The Blog- short for Weblog- can indeed be fabulous for relationships. But it can also be much more: a company’s worst PR nightmare, its best chance to talk with new and old customers, and ideal way to send out information, and the hardest way to control it. Blogs are challenging the media and changing how people in advertising, marketing, and public relations do their job.”
Without using an instant messaging program like Yahoo messenger, one can just read a friend’s status to know what they’re up to.
With the same thought in mind, one can use the event invite when one wants to update their friends about something and doesn’t have the time to message them all.
For example, if one wants to throw a party and wants to know who can come and who can’t, but doesn’t have the time to message all their friends they could send out a mass personal invite and have results almost instantaneously.
AN ARTICLE ON SILICON CARIBE, BY CHERIE DOWDIE ABOUT WHAT KEEPS MYSPACE RELEVANT.
Myspace is still popular and useful for its attention paid to music.
“ With the opportunity to discover new bands and artists, watch music videos, get tour dates, music, news, meet other fans and more, Myspace stays friendly to the music-lover.”
Facebook does not have a music feature.
A personal reason I like Myspace better than Facebook is for it’s creativity.
World of Warcraft is so popular in social media it has gained two spots in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The First for most popular MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game).
The Second for Best Selling PC Strategy Game.
AN ARTICLE FROM GADG, BY KRISTOFF JONES ON WHY WORLD OF WARCRAFT IS SO POPULAR.
“ After six years World of Warcraft stays popular for many reasons. The vastness of the world and the depth of lore which are carefully explained by doing simple tasks or quests. One can become emotionally involved with saving the make-believe world of Azeroth. Unlike games like Final Fantasy, one doesn’t have to roam aimlessly trying to find missions from non-playable characters. Most non-playable characters have an exclamation point or question mark above them, giving the player a hypothetical set of training wheels.”
“ World of Warcraft can be played on any computer system. One doesn’t have to go out and spend hundreds of dollars just to get the best experience. World of Warcraft is the definition of a MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game). With a free game trial, anyone can see for themselves why World of Warcraft is so popular.”
Twitter is going to be the future of online blogging. A chief marketing officer for SocialText says, “We are now following our favorite bloggers on Twitter because it allows us to know immediately what they are doing and will write about, rather than waiting for the blog post to eventually come out at the end of the day. Twitter will not replace blogs, but it will break the news and channel users.”
Aggregation will become a necessity for the next generation. Sites like Friendfeed has already started the change. Aggregation will allow for one to get all the news they need, without going to multiple different websites.
Social Media Mash-Ups - As time goes on users won’t just want content aggregated, but functionalities too. With sites like Opensocial and Open ID, it will be possible to merge and tailor individual sets of social media on a per-user basis.
