Is Instagram The New Teenage Facebook? - Business 2 Community

Is Instagram The New Teenage Facebook? - Business 2 Community | Social Media, the 21st Century Digital Tool Kit | Scoop.it

Facebook isn’t one of the cool kids The reports are coming out that teenagers think Facebook isn’t cool anymore. I think it’s the combination of too many changes with the program, too many companies selling stuff and too many of them seeing their parents (and some are even seeing their grandparents!) using the social networking site. This was not news to me. I heard about this last year when I asked my 13-year-old niece how she likes using Facebook. In her puberty-filled voice she said, “Facebook is weird.

My 17 year old nece is a great indicator of social media trends and she too is abandoning Facebook in favour of Instagram.

Jeff Domansky's curator insight, July 16, 2013 1:11 PM

Depending on your target, listening provides deep insight for marketers. I'd be wary about putting all of my eggs in one basket, but using several social media platforms just makes sense.

Copyright law is a tangle. Even copyright attorneys agree that copyright infringement is not only difficult to prove, but it's rarely worth pursuing in the legal system [for a number or reasons].

 

I'm speaking from experience.

 

However, having the knowledge this post provides regarding what & what not to do can save you a lot of trouble.
