Social Media moving rapidly to be the gateway to web content Facebook has replaced her newspaper as the go-to place for relevant news in Susie’s life. It's not hard to imagine a near future where Facebook (and sites like it) also replace a lot of the ways we use atomized search.For people who are deeply immersed in social media, social networks are already a much heavier influence on personal choices--where to visit, what concert to attend--than traditional advertising. Which means that your organization's website--a brochure out in the wilderness of the Web--is only going to remain relevant and useful as a marketing piece if it is being referenced in the social context of your users' lives. the next generation of Web users may find what they want by using their social network rather than a search algorithm.
