Year of the Social Network

As the year draws to a close, most tech experts are agreeing that one of the biggest tech trends of 2009 was the social network. Sites like Facebook and Twitter, once the domain of techies and teenagers, went mainstream. Millions of non-technical users plugged into social networking this year.

As more people became involved, the content of many social network sites improved. Those involved in a cause found these sites to be a ready-made forum for discussion. Middle-aged people discovered the communication tools that are built into social networks. Many businesses also began using social network sites as a way to establish their brand and communicate with customers. This trend could continue and grow in 2010.

    It’s useful being able to discover what my coworkers on? Twitter and Facebook are talking about a topic I am searching for without having to killing my time on either social site viewing off topic chat.I love social sites but I really don’t care what you just ate. Only getting what I want from my social contacts is going to make them more valuable to me and keep me from getting sidetracked when I am trying to get real work done.
