Bad Vs The Good Of Social Networking?

Discussion in 'Social Networks' started by razsports1, Aug 13, 2014.

    I helped manage a 48 unit apartment complex in the city of Los Angeles. Part of my job was to write ads to post on rent.com, zillow and craigslist. I also used social networking sites like twitter and facebook. I had many conversations with the tenants about social networking. One of the tenants mentioned how facebook has terrible customer service. "You cannot get in touch with them about issues you are having."

    So my question is real simple:) What do you like or not like about facebook/twitter?

    For me, there is nothing to dislike about facebook and twitter.
    I like it the way it is. If I don't like it, then I'll just deactivate my account instead and live the normal life ahaha just saying :)

    There are always things to dislike about the social networks we use -- like FB constantly changing things, primarily its security settings, or how you cannot tag businesses from mobile devices. But the question is... are these things so important in our lives that they truly matter that much?

    I agree about Facebook and their customer service. It is very lacking. They never respond to any inquiries. With that said though, social media is a great source for quality traffic.

    Social networking is an extremely powerful platform for both personal and professional use. Social media add a new angle and in turn increase your exposure. It do work and have great long term benefits if implemented correctly. Time management of social networking activities must be monitored seriously or else your business may suffer serious damage.

    Every things has its advantages and disadvantages it mainly depends how we use it. Some of the advantages of Social media are:
    1. Social media began as a spot to unite with your friends in a simple an advantageous way.
    2. With interpersonal organizations we can convey our considerations and discernment over diverse subjects with an expansive number of gatherings of people, and raise our voice
    3. Organizations have recognized the estimation of informal communities throughout our life, and they are utilizing distinctive strategies to advertise their items.
    Disadvantages of Social Media are :
    1. Numerous studies have demonstrated that the broad utilization of social networking can really cause addiction to the users.
    2. Great utilization of online networking has decreased the level of human communication. In view of informal organizations the cooperation with other individuals has been to be easy and individuals have separated their lives behind their online characters
    3. Basically organizations use online networking to discover and speak with customers. Yet it is an incredible preoccupation to workers, who may indicate more enthusiasm toward what their companions are posting than in their work task.

    Advantages: You reach a much broader audience in an easy way. Disadvantages: The rules are always changing, so you have to do a lot of research to keep up with that audience... especially lately with FB since people seem to be seeing fewer of the posts that they want to see.

    The same can be said about SEO, perhaps even more so. SEO is so different now than it was before the Panda and Penguin updates. The Internet is always evolving.

    Hi that's quite interesting I like your third point. There are multinational companies which create their new products and upgrade or change their old or existing products and services by just taking survey on social networking sites. So I believe these social networking sites have their own way of communicating with ordinary people, companies and brands.
