Social Media is now an absolute necessary function for your business marketing. 

Owen Kim's curator insight, February 14, 2015 9:40 AM

Social media has become a essential part of business as many people gain information from social media and they decide whether to trust or choose a certain market. In my opinion, social media generally brings positive impact to business as buyers can get as much information to buy a product which is reliable which promotes more people to buy things and markets can also advertise their product to people more since more and more people are using social media. It is also more convenient for buyers to check whether the market is reliable or not as people can check and compare to other sources more accessibly in social media.
