This is a list of the most popular social media sites, all arranged by category.

Twitter has released “Twitter 101 for Business” which is in essence a guide for getting started with using the service. It covers the basics of Twitter, how to get started, the lingo, and includes many real case studies.

Twitter – a micro-blogging platform that few knew about a year ago has now gone mainstream with over 6 million users with numbers that growing daily. Even major news outlets such as Fox News, CNN and others are using Twitter on a daily basis to get viewer reaction and create discussion around breaking stories and issues. This leads me to question whether Twitter can be useful for business or is it simply an outlet to waste time and be counter-productive?
Just a few short years ago, companies who had yet to launch web site were thought of as pre-historic or dinosaurs.

They essentially center around budget, lack of contributors and not feeling they have anything to say.
