Serious question: Can anybody Request Jeeves anymore? Or have we totally forgotten about Jeeves since we’re too busy “Googling”? I am presuming the latter is the nearest to the reality. It is official, Google is the king of this jungle…well the online jungle which is. Folks do not Ask Jeeves, randomly browse the internet or perhaps use Yahoo the way they use Google. Google has defined it is brand name as a brand new word:”into Google”. I recall ten years after folks wanted to find advice (often times it had been useless advice) they’d use the phrases “surf the internet”, (“I will surf the internet once I get home”), but that stating no more exists, or can be just used infrequently. It’s been replaced it with “Google which” or “goggle a phrase”. Google, Google, Google.
The best part about it and likely why it’s been the Daddy of search engines is as its run by us. Google isn’t anything without the individuals who supply the information. It is just like a democracy. Google, or even better yet guide to using influencers is imagining but short of a democratic fashion forum. However, while Google is holding it down for search engines, Facebook is now making its way up the ladder. While most of us know of this societal phenomenon that Facebook is now, in 2010 they have been known as representing 44 percent of sharing! That’s a massive number, also has increased by 10 percent from 2009. Does Facebook help you stay connected with family and friends, lets you brand your own business, influence consumer behavior but in addition, it dominates the societal sharing globe. At this speed, people will finally no longer need email accounts since Facebook will likely take over that second.
But does improved sharing equate to greater membership? And what is important? With more than a thousand users, globally, I do not believe Facebook has something to be worried about.
