SOcial Networks To Watch In 2013

12 Jan

These social networks are bound to get bigger in 2013. Feel free to add in additional social networks that are on your radar under this post in the comments section below!

1) Inbound:

The goal of Inbound.org is to enable great content from the world of inbound marketing to get noticed. There’s an amazing community of bloggers, marketers and enthusiasts passionate about non-paid channels like SEO (search engine optimization), social media, content marketing, conversion rate optimization, etc. and we believe they deserve a site where sharing great content is controlled by them.


2) Instagram:

A picture  is worth a thousand words, and Instagram has plenty of photos to go around with one hundred million users and billions of photos between them. Instagram is a fast, beautiful and fun way to share your photos with friends and family. Snap a picture, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram. Share to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr too – it’s as easy as pie. It’s photo sharing, reinvented.


3) Myspace:

MySpace social media network is back, again. They are sticking to their roots by empowering people to express themselves however they want.  This is especially true for musicians, photographers, filmmakers, designers and dedicated fans. The website’s still in closed beta at the moment but will be released soon. The new look, new management and direction of the site  make it one that’s worth following in 2013!


4)  Quora:

Quora connects you to everything you want to know about. Quora aims to be the easiest place to write new content and share content from the web. We organize people and their interests so you can find, collect and share the information most valuable to you. When you want to know more about something, Quora delivers you answers and content from people who share your interests and people who have first-hand knowledge — like real doctors, economists, screenwriters, police officers, and military veterans. On Quora, it’s easy to create a personalized homepage of everything you want to know about by following topics, questions, people and boards.

Pinterest and Image-Driven Social Selling

9 Oct

An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today
October 9th at 12pm EST / 9am PST

Can image-driven social networks such as Pinterest effectively monetize, and how can other business leverages these platforms to sell? Until Pinterest, most major social networks were formed around collective social histories, relationships, and written ideas.

A social platform based entirely on sharing “liked” images – many of available products – centers more around the items pictured, and may serve as leads to sales online. But where does Pinterest take a cut of the action when images on its site lead to purchasing? And in what other ways can businesses make use of that social exchange in order to get found?

Join us http://bit.ly/PG7kvX as we ask this expert panel:

-How active are businesses on Pinterest and how do they behave?
-Is the Pinterest business model based on selling space in the normal boards?
-How is Pinterest dealing with copyright problems from images displayed without permission?
-Who are Pinterest’s competitors and what are they doing differently?
