Is Twitter Just Hype (Twitter vs Facebook vs MySpace)?

Every online marketing firm, including ours, always includes some sort of Twitter marketing option. Most of the time it isn’t by choice, because our clients read all about Twitter and buy into the hype that it’s an effective marketing tool. But is Twitter really all that popular than say, MySpace?

Social Media Marketing or Social Marketing?


I’m often asked what Boost Labs does and I find myself always answering “social media marketing”. The immediate reply is, “Oh like Facebook marketing stuff right?”, which then prompts me into this long speech about how there’s more to social media marketing than just Facebook and usually ends with me suffering from dehydration and the poor person on the receiving side of my rambling with a glazed over look on their face.
