By my calculations Twitter currently has only a .4% penetration of global internet users…still truly only on the blade of the hockey stick. Forgive the hockey reference, but as a Canadian the world’s number one hockey nation, I suppose I’m allowed. Oh and it’s important to note that this total includes very few if any of the millions of mobile users for which this may be the next killer app!
Social media began as a minute wellspring, then a small stream and has now become a river of voices which has already begun to erode traditional internet mediums and methods. Welcome to the social media Grapevine where anyone can tap into this river whether it be for business purposes or purely for leisure! Are you listening to the grapevine?
Welcome to the social media or sm Grapevine for business. A site dedicated to making it easy for business people to understand and access social media tools that can help them improve their business. We do this through educational tutorials, articles, presentations and finally a number of tools that they can apply rapidly in a concrete manner to achieve positive results.
Probably one of the easiest and most rapid ways for companies to get immediate value from social media is to use our free Company Search tool which can be used in a number of ways and for a number of reasons. First off, why not just try entering your own company name and then see what’s being said about your company across the twittersphere? Note that once you complete your search, the box created will continually refresh with any additional tweets made that include your company name. Try it..
