Social Media Revolution or Hostile Takeover
Social Media has effectively performed a hostile takeover of the entire internet. A hostile takeover is a corporate takeover that is carried out against the wishes of the board of the target. The driving force that has powered the internet up until now was the “Adult Service” industry. The majority of traffic before the invention of social media was “Adult”.
Within the last 3 years social media demographics have changed from 15-24 to 15-65. The exodus of MySpace users to Social Networks like Facebook and Twitter, combined with older people wanting to catch up with old friends, has broadened the demographic spectrum so to speak.
Went to a conference about 6months back and they played this video “Social Media Revolution” check it out.
That video is pretty cool right? Nice tune on there as well.
