The plethora of online community platforms makes it is difficult to determine which justify resources to ensure frequent engagement and which should be integrated into your social marketing strategy.
It seems that every month, another social media site reaches our radar and another opportunity arises.
In recent weeks, Twitter has launched 6-second video sharing platform Vine, and Pheed is getting a lot of attention. Pheed enables users to create, inspire and share texts, photos, videos, audio tracks, voice-notes and live broadcasts.
One crowd-sharing platform which has achieved critical mass is Pinterest.
Launching in March 2010, Pinterest became the fastest site in history to break through the 10 million unique visitor mark* and extended the concept of Instagram, (instant shooting and sharing of photography), into a topic-driven repository of images.
The growth of Pinterest is reflected in multiple statistics: the volume of users, the time users spewnd online, the volume of referrals users make and the amount of money they spend. Another impressive statistic is that less than 3 years from inception, the brand is now valued in US$ billions!
