Why business should care about social media
I love the whole discussion about what this new generation of “social media” websites is doing to the world. There’s no doubt about it that by now everyone knows that Facebook has become mainstream. I’ve even heard some people say that Facebook is “so 2008.”
But still, even with so much “adoption” of social sites, what does a business person need to do about it?
Get involved before it’s too late
Social media sites drain a business owners most precious resource – TIME. But like having a website, it’s no longer something you can ignore and hope it goes away.
Some food for thought:
1. You had better protect your social media profiles before someone else creates one that looks like you!
2. You don’t need to participate on all of these sites regularly – but you had better have a nice looking profile there.
3. The internet does not “fact check” so you should pay close attention to what people are saying about you online.
4. Customer reviews (real or otherwise) are factored into the equation when people check out your business.
