The Facebook Phenomenon

Facebook

It began innocently enough with MySpace, and multiplied like a virus out of control. What I’m referring to are social networking sites, also known as social media, or Web 2.0 (don’t know how it got that name!)

Today we have so many of these sites, I can hardly keep up. I’ve got profiles on LinkedIn, FastPitch, Merchant Circle, Ryze, Digg, Twitter, Del.icio.us, WomenIIWomen, a few more I can’t recall, and of course Facebook. I say of course Facebook, because that has become the darling of the business community.

It’s easy to use, and it’s actually a lot of fun! Almost too much fun, because I can spend hours inviting friends, answering friend requests, sending messages to my groups, accepting hugs, money, pets, flowers, and who knows what else! Oh, and letting people know what I’m doing right now!

Here are the facts about Facebook: It’s the 6th most popular website in the world, it has over 60 million active users, 250,000 new people join every day, it gets more than 65 billion (yes billion) page views per month, 56% of the members are over 25 years of age, 55% of the members are female, 35% of members earn more than $60,000/year, and 23% earn over $100,000/year.

I reveal these numbers to you, because they indicate the target market, and I think this is why Facebook members are targeting other members with all their products, events, groups, etc. It’s become a virtual hyper-active marketplace and meeting place. People are selling products, promoting events like teleclasses, and playing with more “applications” than I can keep up with.

Have I gotten any business from it yet? Well, I haven’t, but many people claim they have. I’m going to give it some time, and I suggest you at least put up a profile. You can become my friend at http://profile.to/AndreaSusanGlass, and join my groups at http://Groups.to/IdeasIntoInfo-Products and http://Groups.to/WIFI.

See you on Facebook,
Andrea
