Social Media Marketing
Social media marketing was once considered just a fad not too long ago by marketing professionals all over the world. Now, if corporations do not have a Facebook page and Twitter account, it’s the exception, not the rule.

Reading, Writing and Web-metic
So what will be “routine” social media marketing of next year? I would bet that by the summer of 2011, best practice will be totally different than now.
And it’s way too mind boggling to think of what social media marketing will be like in 2015. What will the kids who are 10 now know about the web when they are 15? In 5 years, will pre-school be teaching reading, writing and web-metic?
Social Media Marketing Is Now Called Social Buzz For Short
If your company or your business on the web does not have enough “social buzz” to give you clout with the search engines, then you are behind. It means you need to ramp up social media marketing to the extent that real people bookmark your content, they make comments on your blog and they link to your website from theirs. That’s social buzz and what it does is speak louder to search engines than technical SEO – way louder.

In other words, with enough social buzz going on about your business, your web content becomes an authority site in Google’s eyes faster because of social media optimization.
