Social Networking for Business Success – Overview


Social Networking is now an integral part of business development.  There are many social networking sites, but where did it all begin? 

The actor Kevin Bacon launched the first Internet-based social networking site in 1997 called SixDegrees.org.  He based it on the idea that each person is separated from others by no more than 6 relationships.  Kevin’s organization is dedicated to doing good – it’s a social network with a social conscience! 

Now the Internet has many social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn, and also social media sites like YouTube.  So, you can connect to friends, family and business associates with the click of a mouse.  Social Networks are changing the way companies reach their target market.  It’s all about being where your audience is today.
