The better business – advertising via social network
I guess one of the morden ways to advertising is to use social network. My friend says that every company is an “advertising company”. They let you registered, study you and promote goods to you. I understand the need of survival of the company, but sometimes, there are great differences on how to leverage the social element. I think it’s a matter of fact about the spirit: company’s motto, and the mechanism: the functionality of their product (either their original goal or something later on developed/discovered by the user on the fly). When company’s interest meets the interest of their consumer, it’s win-win results. When not, it’s sometime like butterfly emerge from cocoon. Something certainly lost, it’s only the matter of fact that whether the butterfly turns out to be beautiful. Nothing is absolutely good or bad. Personally, I don’t like the side-bar displaying advertisement all the time, or if I found out it’s part of the commercial ads when I simply want to enjoy a beautiful picture. Like me, many consumers may prefer service rather than finding everything connected to commercial product. It’s very subtul to recognize the tolerance of customer on adverting. Here’s some links to see how people are trying to promote their business by using public social network.
