Social Networks With Bright Future In 2013
There is no stopping social networks from influencing real society this 2013. It will become stronger and better with new social networks that will carve their influence and earn their spurs in the New Year. As people spend more time in social networks, more ideas will come up to bring about a dynamic shift in how we use the Internet. Let us take a peek at the social networks that are expected to make a huge impact in 2013.
As more marketers use location-based data, Foursquare is expected to be at the forefront of this revolution. While most people using Foursquare are avid fans of Facebook and Twitter; it offers a different experience. Foursquare combines user-driven content and location service. This formula spells success for anybody that is engaged in social networks and wants to harness its power.
Friendster is not dead! Friendster is not dead! At least that is what the people behind it wants to happen. As the emerging social gaming network, people will still have much use of this once kind of social media well into 2013. Having games is the very element that knocked them out in the top perch by a certain Facebook. However this coming New Year, Friendster will have a bolder stature and a brighter future as it pushes the envelope even further. Further into the future of social gaming which they hope becomes their second wind.
Another casualty of the Facebook revolution is My Space. After getting traction, My Space lost luster and played second fiddle to mighty Facebook until….Until it gets its revenge. My Space’s repacking has positioned itself as a top social entertainment site. Musicians and the music industry can use the platform to launch their plethora of musical treasure without fear of the Napster effect of old. Now people can have free music legally. The affordability of entertainment packages will make My Space the new iTunes in 2013.
Spotty is a great social entertainment network but its drawback is that it is very limited. More people are seeing a lot of potential for Spotify as the next best thing only if it can be more widely available all over the world. Notify’s strength is in the mobile arena which My Space is struggling to compete. If Spotify becomes more available, there is no stopping it from even threatening mighty Facebook.
If you are okay to have a username assigned to you, there is no stopping you from lovigBebo. What makes Bebo a threat to Facebook (insert laughter here), is that it is very customizable. The personalization choices abound in Bebo. However, using CSS and HTML is out of the question so don’t even bother learning it to improve your profile on Bebo. Its rich media and entertainment platform make it a very potent site that will eat into your Facebook experience. Will it become the Facebook killer? Not if Facebook can help it. But Facebook should not rest on its laurels with a potential giant killer lurking.
Other potential big bang social sites for the year have made solid marks in the last one or two years. Among these would be interest and MySpace, but then that would remain to be seen. We have the abovementioned social networking sites that might just stumble upon the bigger and older ones! Indeed, the internet marketers must always be on the watch for what’s to come. They must make sure they maximize potentials of these sites if they want to gain an edge over competition. After all, social media is one big leap ahead – if you’re doing it right!
