But does anyone else think the platforms are losing they're way, or some of bigger businesses advertising on them are? I think networking is possibly one of the best ways to obtain new business. You don't just walk up to someone you've just met and try and sell them something so why do companies feel the need to do it on these platforms. Since i've joined this forum (about 2 hours ago) I've seen more conversations and networking on here, than I have on any of the social media platforms. Here's my views. Facebook - As a business on their, I think it is great. As a user I have that many things thrown in my face while i'm speaking to friends I lose interest. LinkedIn - The professional social network... Where nobody socialises. Constant selling. I tend to just use it as an online diary of contacts. Twitter - In all fairness, i'm new to twitter but it seems to be ok. It's good to see a bit of banter between businesses and I only see what is relevant to me because I have followed them. But what ever happened to a normal conversation on these sites? I don't know if sometimes businesses forget that real people are on the end of their post and they're not just a number for their statistics. Any views? p.s. Not sure if this is in the right thread. Apologies if it is.
