Social Media Explained

Social Media

Have you seen the Social Media Explained photo above? I just saw it the other day and thought it was a great way to quickly understand what the big social websites are all about. But, where is Tumblr? And the Google Plus description could be better, even though I do feel like Google plus is getting way more use among employees in general. Even though this is probably made as a joke, I think its a good example to people who think about creating social websites: you should be able to define your idea in a really simple and concise statement. Now, if I could improve this list a little, it would read like this:

Twitter – I’m following people that eat #donuts
Facebook – My status is that I like donuts.
Foursquare – This is where I eat donuts
Instagram – Here’s a vintage photo of my donut
YouTube – In this video I am eating a donut
Linkedin – My Skills include donut eating
Tumblr – Look at this donut picture
Pinterest This is my board with all kinds of donuts
Last FM – Now listening to “Donuts”
G+ – Just sharing my donuts in the conference room
