The year in social media
WebProNews has an interesting article entitled "The Year in Social Media". Social media are all those interactive websites where people socialize - virtually. They include Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, Twitter, Ning, and many many other websites. Social media have been growing, changing, and expanding like crazy - especially over mobile devices (like cellphones). The shorthand used for text messaging, Twitter, IMing has become so widespread that Hewlett Packard even provides a short list of the "top business texting shorthand and terms" on their website. AFAIC it's a good idea to keep up with this stuff.
