Twitter Makes Major Improvements

Twitter has updated it’s look and updated it’s functions. Many tasks performed by third party services in the past are now provided by Twitter, or one of their partners, on their site. You can view videos, photos and other media content. You can discover related content. And you can access profiles without going to a separate page. Watch this video for more details:

Social Media Keeps Changing

WOW! What a time to be keeping up with social media. You almost need a full time staff. Twitter, Google and Facebook cannot stand still for a minute. So what’s going on?

Google – Facebook – YouTube

Google is doing its best to gain a dominate position in social media. Later this year Google Me is scheduled to be launched. It is an effort to compete with Facebook.

Facebook has been changing so regularly and so quickly that no one can get a book published and to market before it becomes outdated.

YouTube is experimenting with live video streaming. For the last two days they have been testing this format. This is just another step toward bringing live TV to the YouTube platform.

Twitter

The biggest change today is happening at Twitter. Over the next several weeks you are going to see a new look on Twitter. They are incorporating links, photos, videos and other content opening up in new panes to the right of the current timeline. This is eliminating the need for several of the apps that have been developed by third parties to enhance the Twitter experience. This is not a good thing for them but should make things easier for us.

Small Companies Using Social Media Every Day

Huck HuckabeeDaryl Willcox Publishing found that 35% of small companies post updates on websites like Twitter and Facebook every day. This should tell you something. It is working for them!

Also in the survey, one third of the respondents do not have time to use social media. And close to that percentage said their customers do not use it. So if my math is right that’s 35% are using it, 33% don’t have time, leaving 32% claiming their customers don’t use the medium. Also of those questioned 25% said they don’t understand the medium. Something tells me that of the 32% claiming their customers don’t use the medium, a large portion of those respondents are just using that as an excuse not to get started in it.
