It’s no brainer to see that social media is here to stay for good. Given vast variety of the existing channels to choose and stick with, it’s time for such a hot space to enter into a new category.

A Platform to Help us to Distinguish Our Quality vs. Quantity Friends, Fans, Followers, and Companies.
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Youtube, Flickr and others have done a decent job of providing additional marketing exposure and even in some cases, additional revenue.

This glut of information reminds me of the early 90’s when WWW was adopted broadly by the general public.

Then came Web 1.0 & 2.0 – Youtube, Flickr, myspace, Facebook, Twitter and countless others have turned everyday people into content producers, influencers and experts. We basically tripled down on the information overload how do you know which channels to select for deploying your social media strategy? How do you know which one is the right channel to let your fans and followers to find you, your products, and services? Most importantly, who is Joe Smith that is recommending that person, that company, that product?
