New Social Media Channels In 2013

1. Tumblr

Tumblr is a blogging service that combines some of the most popular features of Twitter, Pinterest and other blogging sites such as LiveJournal.  Easy to sign up for and simple to use, Tumblr offers users the ability to “follow” other Tumblr users in a manner not dissimilar to Twitter and to “reblog” posts by other users in a similar way to Twitter’s retweeting or Pinterest’s repinning.

2. Goodreads

Goodreads is the largest site for readers and book recommendations in the world. The site allows you to build a virtual book shelf of books that you have read, are reading or wish to read in the future and see reviews of these books or contribute your own.  It’s a great way to keep track of the books you’ve enjoyed and share these with friends, as well as seeking recommendations for new books to read.

3. Last.fm

Last.fm lets you effortlessly keep a record of what you listen to* from any player. Based on your taste, Last.fm recommends you more music and concerts! Users of the site are able to download a small piece of software that enables them to “scrobble” every piece of digital music they have to one of a variety of media players. These records are then used to match you with other users who have similar tastes to your own, and recommend bands that are similar to those that you listen to but whose music you may not yet have heard.

4. GetGlue

GetGlue enables its users to check in when watching a movie, TV show or listening to music and lets you share this activity with your other social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Similar sites inclue Fango.

5. 43 Things

43 things allows users to list their goals then share them with a community of over three million people who can cheer you on as you strive to accomplish them.

There are lots of social networks outside of the big three (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). Consider hiring a Melbourne marketing expert for all your marketing needs, contact Milkshake-factory.com for complete marketing solutions.
