Social Media: Revolutionary Paradigm Shift Away From Print

“Years to reach 50 million users: Radio 38 years, TV 13 years, Internet 4 years, IPOD 3 years, facebook added 100 million users in less than 9 months”   Erick Qualman

Web 2.0 Social Media is a paradigm shift of such massive proportions that it could be the biggest shift since the industrial revolution. The momentum is not slowing. Yet many naysayers try to point out that “this social media stuff” is just a fad- a passing fad. Instead blogging, microblogging, social networking, bookmarking, crowdsourcing, reviewing, and other forms of social media networks or concepts are expanding and evolving everyday.

Want some proof besides the failure of 800+ magazines in 2009, Gourmet the most recent victim, and the implosion of the print advertising business model? Don’t believe that things are changing because the delivery channel is changing? Trying to justify holding out establishing that blog, facebook business page, or Twitter account? THINK AGAIN-STOP and watch the video!

Erick Qualman, author of Socialnomics: How social media transforms the way we live and do business, is behind this eye-opening video that details how social media has changed the world. This kind of development reminds me of the music and cultural revolution of the 1960’s—a transformation that will likely have a long-term impact. Are you ready now to take social media seriously?

Twitterjobsearch.com: A Job Search Engine For Twitter

“For job seekers this is the new tool of the paradigm shift from the power of search to the super power of conversational search”–Dean Guadagni Business Director Inner Architect

Twitter.com is one of the fastest rising social networks with 7.1 million users and an explosive growth rate of 1,382% (January 2008 to January 2009) according to Adage.com. The latest, and one of the most effective new tools for Twitter, is a new job search engine for Twitter Twitterjobsearch.com.

TwitterJobSearch.com – The Social Media Job Search Engine

Some things can’t be improved upon. To begin to understand the power of Twitterjobsearch, consider the power of conversational search and Twitterjobsearch.com’s mantra:

“Until now, search engines for social media sites merely looked for words. We’re looking at context. We use semantic tools to look at what was said. We then look at what they’ve said before. We then look at who was saying it. If we do this right, we can figure out why they’re saying anything at all.”
