My Opinion?
I see more and more Klout hunters in social media. Shouting out loud seems to be the holy grail of social media in 2013?

Have you noticed how social media changes our behavior?

How many people in your circle have “CEO” in the Twitter or LinkedIn bio?

Old skool me? I was still being under the impression that only a Fortune 500 company could call himself CEO,

Nevertheless, it’s a statistic fact that your social branding and reputation are getting more important than ever before.

It sometimes feels like we are part of a sociological revolution, not a technological one. Because social media is certainly changing our behavior.

Many of us use it as broadcasting medium, helping us to earn the attention of our peers. With our Klout score as the holy grail.

I hope that we sometimes understand that sticking feathers up our butts, does not make us chickens.

No peacocks either.

    Although I’m a big fan of it, I don’t think Wordpres should be in the infographic. It’s not social such as Tumblr. Today it’s all about visual content and social, that’s Tumblr. Screenagers will engage with this social content network more and more, Facebook is for grandpa!

  • Thanks a lot. But I don’t agree.

    Blogs are still one of the most powerful and influential platforms within the social universe.

    I guess today is a lot about visual content, but not all.

    Great storytelling, the massive sales of books, the power of deep insightful stories at blogs or reviews: that’s still or story or text based.

    So I guess visuals can say more than a 1000 words indeed, but I don’t believe that great story telling (Ted videos, documentary’s, books, stories, blog posts etc) is dead.

    If you look at the growing numbers online, many grandpa’s and grandma’s have entered the web and social web.

    And especially this “grey” target audience is not only huge around the globe; they also have the time and money.

    So I would not open another youth marketing agency in this era, the growth will certainly be in senior citizens!

      The infographic mentions: …10 social networks… WordPress is not a social network, therefore I believe it should be in the infographic. Or they need to change the title. I agree with you on the powerful influential role a blog can have.

    True wordpress not a social network at all.

    Same for Twitter; microblogging interest network, not a social network

    G+? Not even google can explain in 1 minute what it is :-)

    Insta a social network?

    Social network might be a container term that is being used wrongly more than often?
