What are the 10 forbidden words in an e-mail subject line?
Atlanta, GA (Vocus) August 14, 2009
Recently, more than 100 marketing professionals were asked which social media tool they thought would be the first to become irrelevant.
The poll was conducted by the 60 Second Marketer (http://www.60secondmarketer.com), an online magazine visited by thousands of marketers each month from around the globe.
Respondents to the poll were given five choices for the “first social media tool to become irrelevant.” The choices were MySpace, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. The prediction? MySpace would be the first to go, according to 51 percent of respondents. Twitter was next in line for a forecasted decreased popularity, receiving 35 percent of the votes.
“Social media has risen so quickly that it’s hard to tell where it’s headed,” says Jamie Turner, Chief Content Officer of The 60 Second Marketer. “So we thought we’d ask those who are using it most to tell us their opinion. It looks as though MySpace may have its work cut out for them, but I also think that that platform will evolve to meet the challenges.”
