The importance of social media

The development towards a creative economy will have several impacts:

- products and services will become more competitive
- companies will become more competitive
- companies will increase their turnover
- their ability to respond to the needs of the market improves

How to get started with Internet and Social Media?

Why on earth should anybody spend time on Facebook, Twitter, Jaiku, Pownce, MySpace, etc. The foremost reason why people surf the Internet is because they are looking for information. So, if you have a story to tell, a product to sell or a service to promote, go ahead.

Gone are the days when all you needed to be on the web was a web site. Today you need to think and act in terms of a total web presence. And that means if you’re not participating in social media, you’re not really online. Consider these highlights from a wonderfully comprehensive research project.

* 73% of online users read a blog

* 57% join social networks

* 45% have started a blog

* 83% have viewed a video online

* 39% subscribe to RSS feeds

* 36% think more positively about companies that have blogs

The social innovation train is in transit. We've an ongoing discussion about the Satumaa Finlandé Open Innovation and Collaboration in Finnish language here.

There is also a Group in Facebook. You can access this group here.

Social media has several benefits when comparing with traditional communication & marketing tools: it is fast, it is cheap, it can connect big groups of people, it is not depending on the time of the day (or where you are geographically sitting on this small globe called our world).

Still there is a huge number of people who are suspicious, however. They may thing that some IP of their own will be stolen, they may not see any target for networking or - surprisingly enough - they think that internet communication is too difficult for them. I have given thrust to them: " If I was able to learn it, you sure learn it, too!".

I am going forwards on different roads today. I practice common SoMe tools (like Facebook), I join KKnetwork ning and some educational nings too, I write my blogs, I read books of network education etc. It does mean that I am an expert on this area but it means that I am interested in it. And, after all, this may be one of the most severe problems when applying social media in everyday life: people may not be interested in it, they do not see its value as a connection between people all around the world.

Social Media is still a very new phenomenon in Finnish corporations. It will take time before companies learn to understand the value of

- open innovation
- social networking
- global collaboration

We should not try to deliver a complete solution to the business world at once. We've to move slowly. No need to rush. The road ahead is quite clear but those who need the solutions need time to learn and to adapt.

Slow motion is now more important than to tell the whole story at once. People can't eat an elephant for breakfast.

The challenge of marketing and making business on Internet is to move from communication and information towards collaboration and conversation. How is that done?

* Blogs are one to many communication channels
* Ning enables many to many communication
* To attract people we need multiple channels

Internet usage in China, reports Tech Crunch.

Here is something for us to think about. China does have the world's largest Internet population.

The Chinese government may be keeping a close eye on which websites, blogs and search engines their people can visit, but that’s not stopping internet usage from growing fast throughout the country. The government-related information center CNNIC (China Internet Network Information Center) claims the nation’s online population has grown 41.9% in 2008 to an astounding 298 million users, reports the BBC.

That’s about the size of the entire U.S. population, while eMarketer pegs the online population in the States to be about 200 million.

This further cements China’s position as the world’s largest online population, although internet penetration is still fairly low (22,6%) even if it exceeds the world’s average by almost one percent.

According to the study, usage in the countryside is growing much faster than in urban areas (60.8% year-on-year compared to 35.6% in cities), the numbers of bloggers has increased to +162 million, and accessing the internet through mobile phones is still immensely popular. CNNIC reports that 117.6 million people accessed the internet using their mobile phones last year, up 133% from 2007. A further surge is expected after licences for 3G-enabled mobile phones have finally been issued to China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom as from last week. The roll-out of the faster 3G network is expected to commence in 2011.

Imagine what it would be like if the government weren’t so keen in controlling what the Chinese are allowed to view or search on the web.
