How Social Networking Can Improve Your Website Statistics?

The concept of social networking has been developed about a decade ago. It was meant to bring people from different parts of the world together, share their interests, and communicate with each other in a sophisticated way. Until recently, business professionals and managers have incorporated the idea of integrating their businesses with some of these social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, YouTube etc. These sites are visited by millions of people every day, and if their business is promoted through them, it guarantees a better chance that more people will visit their website on the basis of common interests. Thus, social media has a great potential towards improving online business statistics.

How Social Networking Can Improve Your Website Statistics?

Different ways of integrating social media are –

  • Advertising

It is particularly useful if it is for promoting an online business. Facebook provides a unique way of targeting specific users. Facebook allows its users to share their interests with the world. If their interests and your website content match, the page will be recommended in the advertisement section.

  • Writing blogs

By blogging, you can post useful content and information in your website. If the information is useful, several people will visit your website, increasing its network traffic. It is also important to tag the blog posts with certain keywords so they are available with Google search. Blogs can also be used to promote products and items. One popular blogging service is WordPress.

  • Driving audience

For making a website popular, it is required that customers already visited your page, recommend it to their friends. This can be done on social media sites like Yelp, where you can create your business listing, and the satisfied people can write reviews about your products and services.

  • Micro blogging

This is more commonly known as Tweeting. You can use twitter accounts to follow your customers, and give out notices about new deals and offers for businesses, or new content updates for websites. You can also locate people who show interest in your website.

  • Social Bookmarking

If your website contains information on different fields of interest, you can satisfy people by allowing them to see only that content which they are interested it. Social bookmarking enables to remember content viewed and liked by a user, which is used to rank the content according to user liking. This can also help you improve the quality of your posts, and know what people are actually interested it.

  • Integrating applications

Many social media sites allow their widget integration into a website, for example, the “Like” or the “Tweet” button. Users can share the content with their friends, and they will visit your website if they find it relevant. This helps to popularize and expand business.

Social Networking is a strong tool by which online businesses can flourish. It requires you to create social profiles in those sites which you think is required for improving your website statistics. It is required that you have a purpose in mind, for which you will use the social media, and post about items which people think to be important and relevant. Scheduling of using social networks is essential as it will restrict your social media from wasting your time, while posting and responding to customers at a certain time of the day. As social sites can be fun and entertaining, it is required to keep focused on your goals and objectives.

Skype and Facebook Video Chat

July 10th, 2011 | Posted under Internet Trends | No Comments »

Facebook, the number one social networking has teamed-up again with Skype to present 750 million users the new feature of Facebook. It is a video-call service where you can chat with your friends, relatives, and loved ones.

Mr. Zuckerberg explained that the amount of sharing – of photographs, videos and web links – was a better indication of how people engaged with the site. He also stated that the total number of active users was no longer a useful measure of the site’s success.

Mark Zuckerberg: “This type of thing is only possible because of the social infrastructure that already exists”

For now, the Facebook’s video chat service will only be able to connect two users face-to-face.

Is this a direct challenge from the powerhouse rival Google in the social networking arena?

Five great applications based on PHP

People often talk about how PHP is being slowly eclipsed by other upcoming APIs that are not only about programming, but provide a complete environment for application development. However, the fact is, most of the popular applications and software are developed on PHP itself. Here, we discuss the top applications that have been made using PHP

Drupal

One of the most popular Content Management Systems (CMS) is completely based on PHP, which gives users and developers the flexibility and the ability to manipulate the system according to their requirements

Joomla

Another CMS that uses PHP for its core libraries as well as the modules developed by thousands of developers worldwide. The simplicity and efficiency of PHP gives Jooma a great advantage.

FFmpeg

The video-sharing module owes most of its development to PHP, and thus faces no compatibility issues with most systems it is implemented on.

Wikipedia

The user-interactive section of the famous knowledge-sharing website has been written in PHP, and has facilitated millions of user entry, apart from filtering the unwanted ones.

Facebook

The most popular social networking website makes use of PHP for user interaction, and thus most applications developed on the Facebook API are also written in PHP


BounceWeb provides fast and efficient PHP hosting.


How to get new friends on Facebook.

February 21st, 2009 | Posted under The Internet, Tips For Life | No Comments »

Well first off Facebook is one of the leading social networks out there that does not make it easy to go spam everyone into being your friend. They actually try to make it so that it can be used to actually engage in meaningful contact.

The first thing you want to do as in any social atmosphere is to be honest. The purpose of being on Facebook is to tell people about yourself so don’t just say “I’m not giving anyone any information about me”, unless of course you just want to have a private network of friends that already know everything about you. I’m not saying you can’t do that, but if you are reading this because you want to make new friends on Facebook then you probably should include as much truthful info as possible.

Now Facebook does have some cool features that will help you also to get in touch with past friends. You can include the school (s) you went to and or companies you worked for and they will show you people who also have that in their profile.

If you have changed your name at all in your life (most commonly if you got married and changed you last name) you may want to list your past names (maiden name) in your full name i.e. Jane Doe Smith. This way when old classmates look for you it will make it easier for them to determine if that was really you.

So what if you want to make new friends that are not in your networks? That’s easy too, get involved in groups. You can also add some game apps and find people there. Usually the apps have a forum that people go and talk about the game.

My advice to you is, whatever you do BE CAREFUL. As with anything online people are not always who they say they are. Even if you have been talking to this person for years online always be cautious with giving out more information that Facebook requests, there’s a reason why they don’t ask everything. It doesn’t matter if you are 13 or 60 there are always predators out there looking to hurt someone.
