Is Social Media A Fad? Or Is It… ?

In the past couple of years, the term ‘Social Media’ is gaining its popularity, proven by its gigantic growth of people tapping into Social Media.

Statistics have shown that just in a short 5 years after Facebook is born, there are more than 500 million Facebook users currently at my point of writing. If you are to rank Facebook as a country, it would be the 3rd largest country in the world, after China and India. That’s still just the beginning. Facebook is still currently adding 250,000 new members Per Day!

Facebook is not the only gigantic social media site. There are also Twitter, YouTube, MySpace … which numbers hundreds of millions of users online! But wait. I haven’t even mentioned Chinese social media sites like RenRen.com or QQ.com which owns the China, the Biggest Internet Market in the World with almost 420 Million Internet Users!

There are many well-known fads created, some of the most notable ones are Tamagotchi, an hand-held digital pet which allows you to rear a digital animal, and Pokemon, a video game which features a range of colorful Japanese cartoon characters.
