For example, China, the world’s biggest emerging market, blocks social media sites like Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter

Social media is the subject of many marketers today and DC Fawcett says that many are missing opportunities abroad.
DC Fawcett is Internet Marketing entrepreneur who has been teaching online marketing principles to small business and individuals since 2009.
He proposed some questions on his blog today that he says many small business and entrepreneurs never imagined. The question he asked was: “Can you imagine no Facebook? No YouTube? No Twitter?”
According to article published in the [Wall Street Journal, China is expected to add $12.5 billion in additional ad spending, but sites like YouTube and Facebook won't benefit because they are blocked by government Web filters.
DC Fawcett commented, “In the U.S., we sometimes can’t fathom how bad other countries have it. For example, China, the world’s biggest emerging market, blocks social media sites like Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter.”
However, the same WSJ article places Brazil as the social media hotspot of the world, second only to the U.S. with just 65 million Facebook users.
DC Fawcett added, “So what does this mean for small businesses and entrepreneurs?
It means there’s a whole bunch of untapped potential for business using social media channels in Latin America, and not so much in China. There’s also Russia and India. In investment circles, these four countries are known as BRIC, which is short for Brazil, Russia, India and China. These are four sectors of the world that are showing promising market booms. Out of the four, Brazil is leading the way taking second place in the world market of social media, with consumers willing to pull out their credit cards and buy things online. This can create an instant boost in revenues for you, especially if you sell info products.”
