Social Media is here to stay and we should all learn and develop our skills to keep updated - Read on SEO's are catching on!
Indeed, the past year had so many surprises from the world of the internet, particularly from social media platforms. Every professional SEO Company along with its SEO strategies had to go through changes and adjustments.
Here is a quick review of the most talked about social media news for 2012.
PINTEREST, the fastest growing pinboard, has recently allowed brands to create business accounts. In fact, even the personal accounts of users can already be converted into business accounts. This time, they would have to agree to a new set of terms and conditions set by Pinterest.
This move is said to be because Pinterest now wants to help businesses provide content and then pin easily. There will already be a verification badge for brands that sign up that will make locating them a lot easier.
Aside from this change, Pinterest also made itself more available as an app on Android and Ipad. Plus, it also updated its version of the iPhone app. This has made it possible for android users to pin their favorites through their Android tabs and phones.
It was also last year when Facebook acquired the very popular INSTAGRAM. After 5 months after the deal was announced, it finally became official that the two huge companies have joined together.
The deal was made possible after reaching a negotiated amount and stocks worth $1 billion.
“We’re so excited to bring Instagram to Facebook and see what we can create together,” said Mike Schroepfer, vice president of Engineering at Facebook.
Twitter this year also received a suggestion from Evan Williams who is its former CEO and co-founder. He said that there is a need for the social media site to have a new means of measuring its members’ reach other than just follower count. Late last year, Twitter made some changes and created a new header design.
Google+ rolled out a number of features. Among these are a new navigation ribbon, cover photo, hangouts page or directory, conversation cards, explore page, and more. There is also the Google+ share button.
Instagram also launched this year its online profile for its users. Now, it looks a bit like the Timeline.
Search engine optimization services continue to change to meet the demands and needs of companies online.
