Evolution of Social Media
Let's examine the past, present and future of Social Media in Business. About 10 years ago, social media was evolving from an online fad to a daily part of our lives. Facebook was approaching 50 million active monthly users and would double that number by August 2008. Twitter was in its infancy but gaining in popularity due to its ability to connect people directly to famous athletes, celebrities, and real-time news. LinkedIn has reached 17 million active users and would nearly double that number by 2008 to 32 million.
