The Internet offers so many more possibilities for small businesses than ever before. The online marketing opportunities are limitless, and it can be done with the social networks that you use everyday.

I love that point Martin! I think people call it social because of the personal element to it as opposed to advertising and things like that, especially because it's so interactive in nature. Do you have a suggestion as to what to change the name to?
