      Social networking is an indirect form of advertising because it builds a community around your brand without blatantly advertising. It's "indirect" because it gets your customers (audience) to interact and communicate with you on a personal level which makes them familiar with your brand so when it comes time to buy, they will choose you....but it shouldn't involve any "in your face" advertising tactics.

      It builds your reputation and increases brand awareness. As your community builds, you will have amassed a group of people who will be more inclined to click on your links and become ambassadors for your cause. Over time, this increases traffic, sales and your reputation in your niche.

      From an SEO standpoint, getting shares, likes and tweets, +1s on your content can boost your content in the search engine since the algorithm partly relies on social signals.

      Social networking is not a "quick fix" but it is part of an effective marketing strategy that continues to build over time.

      This is my short description of social networking...hope it helps!

        Totally agree with all of this. I also think Facebook is also a fantastic way to build your email subscriber list by directing fans to your email signup/optin page. I have had up to 50 emails per post on a couple of my fan pages if the content is engaging enough to go viral and it gets shared around..

    Social proof...people are much more likely to buy something if someone they know has endorsed the product or the seller in some way, even if that way is seemingly insignificant like a FB like.

    While there are risks inherent in online social networking, there are also many potential benefits. Social networking can provide opportunities for new relationships as well as strengthening existing relationships, whether your kids’ friends are close to home or across the world. It’s important to be vigilant when your kids are getting involved in online social networking, but it’s also good to encourage positive relationships through various avenues, including the Internet.

    Social media is the best way to get directly in front of your target audience quickly. It frees you from the grips of Google and allows you the ability to directly engage your target market and build beneficial relationships with high-profile influencers that you wouldn't have had to the chance to otherwise.

    I think too many people have a limited view of what "social media" is. Social media means you need to be directly interacting and engaging people, rather than just using it as a platform to broadcast or syndicate your offers/content.

    Additionally, social media isn't just limited to Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+. Forums are included under that social media umbrella, and so are bookmarking sits, ning communities and other online communities.

    To me, social media is all about the 'engaging' aspect rather than the platform.

    Hope this helps you.

    From a business point of view, the first two advantages of social networking enable you to meet new clients and expand your business because most of these sites allow you to customize your webpage and provide links to your personal website. The best part about becoming a member of a social network is that majority of these is free. This means that you don't have to pay any fees.

      Of course they're free for joining but when you need to run the business there, they're really costly !

    There is no specific answer or right or wrong answer here, there is a list of top social media websites including Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and which one of them is best depends on your end results, you have to test each social media website and see the kind of traffic that you receive for the same posts. Traffic will depend on how you are using these social media website and how many followers you have on each.
