“The Internet is completely over,” according to Prince, the pop music icon who made this bold statement in July.
I have heard it said time and time again, “Social media is just a fad. It’s not going to stick around.” What if it isn’t a fad? Social media is proving it’s ongoing presence and personality with the new twitter.com announced recently. Mashable.com’s, Pete Cashmore, weighed in on the topic, “If the Web is dead, nobody told Twitter.”
In fact, twitter.com is rising in popularity daily. With statistics noting, “16% of new users are starting on mobile. There are on average 370,000 new sign ups a day overall,” (via TechCrunch).
With the new twitter.com, it will look a lot more like 3rd party apps such as, Seesmic and TweetDeck, with live feeds refreshing consistently. Earlier this week Mashable.com stated, “…with many of the best features of Twitter clients like Tweetie, Seesmic Desktop, and TweetDeck, now becoming a part of the default Twitter interface.”
Twitter is working on these changes, and you should see the new twitter.com sometime within this month. Patience is key. I guess the Internet isn’t over after all.
I look forward to hearing what you all think about the new changes. Let me know your thoughts and suggestions on Twitter (@bizzykendall) or in the comments section below.
Until next time, stay bizzy.
