  1. Hey Debbie, I think pinterest.com and instagram.com both are playing a major role in Social media. Almost major brands focusing there now in recent trends.

  2. I find it interesting that “60 percent of the top 100 brands on LinkedIn now routinely post videos linked to their YouTube channel.”

    What is context of the videos that they are sharing? Is brand awareness related? Do the videos offer company insights? Are the videos for educational purposes?

  3. It is true that social medias like Facebook,Twitter has become a part of our daily routine.If you want to know more about a shopping center or a hotel or a restaurant,just open up your Facebook page and there the customer reviews would be clearly given.The cumbersome and daunting task of searching through the research websites is completely avoided due to the extended presence of social medias.The relevant information provided by the author are “real facts” about social medias.
