Since December 2011 Facebook has a new section called Timeline, which will merge the Wall pages and Profile together. With the timeline you can scroll in the past and look what you and others have posted in Facebook. It also includes photos, videos and locations you have visited. Facebook introduced the Timeline Movie Maker, which makes a short movie from all your pictures in Facebook.
Pinterest is a new social media launched in July 2011, and is already in a short time very popular like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. In Pinterest is a pin board where you can share images which are found on the internet, for entrepreneurs is Pinterest also very interesting because you can advertise your product for free.
You hear the word Pinterest all over the internet, but what is actually Pinterest? To make it short, Pinterest is just a pin board where you can share things which you found on the internet. For example, it is possible to scroll through the pinboard of others to get new inspiration. So if you find something you don’t have to email, bookmark it in your favorites or put it in a binder.
Time by time Facebook comes with new features, some are useful and some you prefer to go back to the old fashion way. Sometimes there are no options to switch back to the old interface, same with the Facebook Photo Viewer. Facebook is using a Google+ Photo Viewer, this will open a black box and beside the picture you see the comments.
Have you ever thought you can login automatically if you have a Google, Yahoo or MySpace account? When you have logged in your Google account using Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, you can also go your Facebook account without entering your username and Password.
Google+ has its own Social Networking site like Facebook, they call it also Google Plus or Google Plus One. The +1 button of Google which you see on the Internet helps users to find relevant content, for example a website, search results or advertisement.
Everybody likes to do it sometimes, scrolling in the history of your posts or your friends posts, to see what has been written including the reactions. With the timeline you can scroll in the past. Disadvantage is that scrolling costs al lot of time. Facebook comes with something new, Timeline Movie Maker.
The Social Media is very important for us, it doesn’t need any explanation. In the past, sometimes people thought the hype would be flying over, it’s a trend that more and more deeply rooted in our society. We have to do something with Social Media? I can not answer that question for you, but if you want to do business after 5 years or more, it is really recommended.
Social media is a collective noun for all web applications that allow information to share on a user-friendly and often funny way. This includes not only information in the form of text. Also audio and images are shared through social media sites.
If the social media is shared with others about your company or product, it may you just give free advertising.
