If you’ve previously resisted invitations to join social networking sites because you regarded them as mere trends, then you should consider the other benefits to be had from these sites.
One of the most obvious benefits that these sites offer is the ability to keep in touch with friends and family anywhere in the world. With the bulletin board updates, you could read about how your friends and relatives are doing. You can be quickly informed if they’re getting married or if they’ve gotten sick and need a friendly call to wish them well. You could also find long lost classmates and acquaintances and drop them a message to see how they’re doing.
Can you use a social network for your work or for business purposes?
You could also get business benefits through online networking. Are you an entrepreneur thinking about how to use the networking sites for your business? You can think of social networking as a type of free online advertisement. By creating a bulletin board notice, you could inform the people in your network of the existence of your product and its benefits. You could also include information regarding how to buy the product or how to contact you through the social network. And you may also ask the people in your network to post your advertisement as well. If you’ve written an interesting advertisement, it might end up reaching a lot more people just like a viral advertisement.
