Social Media to Social Business

March 19, 2012 by thatsocialmediathing

I’ve seen it declared quite a few times that ‘2012 is the year Social Media goes mainstream’. I completely agree but what does this mean?

Simple – Social Media is not facebook or Twitter or Pinterest or blogs. The whole web is social. The web is also mobile, meaning that the internet is not something we go ‘to’ but something that is with us everywhere we go.

Think about that for a minute……

It means that the economy has moved from one where customers seek out businesses (search, SEO, SEM) to one where businesses have to seek out customers (content, shareability, relevance).

This article that was published on Business2Community a few weeks ago goves a really good overview of the shift from Social Media to Social Business, what this means and why it is so important for your company.
