Facebook is perhaps the best site to place ads right now since it is a hot place to which has grown out of proportion. Catering towards social networking and offering exposure for programmers and of course advertisers, businesses that are looking for good traffic would be wise to place their money on Facebook for now.
But for how long? That is perhaps something that many would be checking out. Basing it on data gathered on Facebook’s performance, it is here to stay for a couple of years. Friendster was once in the same vote, but once the other social networks started to take shape, everyone will agree that Friendster is slowly dying and has been relegated to catch-up.
What made Facebook different? Well similar to any successful company in the initial stages, establishing and following your ideal setup and purpose is the key towards success. Mark Zuckerberg made this clear that he wants to focus first on idealism before profits.
Such is a formula for success and apparently it is paying off. A change in philosophy may be a gamble but for now, Zuckerberg should consider, why change a winning formula if it works?
“For us that’s helping people connect with people and things that they care about. You are better off focusing on those things and helping to build an eco-system around you for all the other stuff. No one can do everything.”
