I have been attending quite a lot of meeting lately and it is interesting how much everyone is inclined to talk and learn about social media. I just managed to ask a few of them the purpose they use the social networks for and responses were quite amazing. Of course I wasn’t near a system to create a poll there and then but many of them had opinions of using them for connecting with friends and businesses.
I am not sure what actually they meant when they said business since almost each one of them was not representing any brand or product. But many of them actually owned blogs that they updated on and off and web pages on which they needed hits. Most probably they intended to turn those into useful revenue sources. But the primary purpose still remains connecting with friends and sharing photos and videos. I mean that was what they were meant to be used for initially. I just thought about having conducting a poll at LinkedIn to see the responses of others on the Web.
