I use Twitter, I use Facebook and I also extensively use my Email. While there have been articles/reports and research produced in the past which said that Social Media sites are replacing email in a lot of instance but I find myself using my email a lot more because of Facebook and Twitter [they are a big part of "Social Media" sites for me]. Instead of commenting on a post by visiting Facebook, where possible I comment from within my email, I upload pictures from my email and I forward and respond to lot of messages that originated from Facebook. On discussing on Twitter, when conversations get serious, they continue within my email inbox. I use Gmail as my primary email. And when I get messages from Twitter and Facebook, most of the time Gmail's Priority Inbox does a good job of marking important and not so important messages originating from these sites.
- How long before the word "Social Media" fades away?
- Is Facebook still a Social Media site? I see a lot more professional activities happening on Facebook now.
