The latest social media trends in 2009 are by and large quite different from that in 2008. The global recession that hit the economic sector recently has influenced the social media trends of 2009 heavily. The recession poses a new kind of economic scenario and hence the older business models will no longer be in context with what is happening in the economic scene these days.
So in 2009, new models have to be developed. There will also be a large demand for online availability of the retailers, cars, travel, real estate and other sectors. Online availability means quick and direct access and in today’s world where nobody has hardly a second to waste, there will be very few who will be willing to grapple through the long series of phone lines before reaching their required destination.
Social networking sites like FaceBook, Twitter, Yelp, etc. will be the new means of expanding one’s business and earning considerable profits. This is possible because the moment someone buys something from the businessman’s company and finds the deal very lucrative he will spread the message around through the site and this network would keep on getting wider and wider and the number of consumers for that particular product would reach leaps and bounds in no time.
