Social Media Sites You Should Know About…

Posted by INRA on August 22, 2009

Hello Everyone, I’ve started my new blog, and was thinking for a while as to why I am doing this?, and the answer which came back to me was: “Boss, you like to make friends, you want to build your network, you are in to Social Media Optimization, Hence you should have a platform to discuss your ideas with your friends.” Hmm… 🙂 that was true..So I thought Why not give it a try. So I am here. Now the next thing which strikes me was Where should I began with? Again, my so called intelligent sixth sense answered – boss, what happen to you, you want to build network and what else can be a start then to give your friends a list of sites where they should be to build their own network…Hmmmm…True again…So Friends, Here my first post – Social Media Sites you should know about…

2. Twitter – Convenient and efficient way to let your fans and customers know what you’re up to.

3. MySpace – This has definitely lost some popularity with the rise of Facebook and Twitter, but still offers a great platform to keep in touch with your customers.

10. Care2 – For the socially conscious business man or woman. Set up your profile, donate to worthy causes, submit and vote on news pieces, sign petitions and much more.
