The company behind LinedIn was formed in December 2002 and the site was launched in May 2003. The social networking site didn’t take much time to accrue profit and the users also increased by number fairly son in LinkedIn. The site took almost 6 years to reach a total user volume of 50million. However, to double this number LinkedIn took just 18 months approximately.

The highly acceptable site of LinkedIn is by now possibly one of the most sought after networking sites. As per the statistics the site is adding a user every second presently.

The stunning facts about LinkedIn will make every eyes become wide open. LinkedIn, which is an American site, is experiencing the fastest international growth today. Almost 56 % of the users of the site reside outside United States.

Iphone to experience a BIG sale with new Google apps

The new iphone interface launched but Google will be similar to that of the web application. Users will be offered additional features that can streamline their searches and they can save time on their searches as well. The fresh application has given options to search though pictures and hence have integrated quick access to apps like Google Googles and Voice search. 

This major update of features includes many additional apps but the most happening one is supposed to be the new search toolbar. This toolbar is very much similar to the left-side column that shows up in search result page of Google search. Users of iphone can now easily access shopping, news, blog, video, place and discussion search by using the new search toolbar. This toolbar is expected to be the dramatic update that gooogle has brought in its iphone app.

This new application is much more fast the previous app and this is another reason why this will be readily acceptable. It can be well inferred from this new feature update that people who need to stick to the internet almost all the time will be inclined towards the new feature. Integration of this feature in iphone is a sort of uplifting the device several cps higher in terms of its service. Naturally, it can be expected that sale of iphone will increase by several notches.
Needless to say, both the iphone vendors as well as Google are expected to see a growth in their business. While the people especially the individuals engaged in the corporate world are expected to make a shift in their preference of electronic gadgets. After all when so much of features a re available in a phone, why to carry laptops always?

In my opinion it will bring a revolution in the iphone manufacturing industry and this will be realized soon.

The power of friendship marketing should never be underestimated

Never underestimate the power of friendship marketing; someone once said that friends are the family that we choose for ourselves on this planet, and that might perhaps give you an idea of the potential friendship marketing holds for you. No matter what kind of business you run, using the trust of a customer to reach out to someone completely unknown is something only friendship marketing can do for you. Don’t mistake friendship marketing with making a Facebook page and trying to get tons of “friends” and signing up for Twitter looking to get “followers”. Friends never use one another, and that is the biggest strength of friendship marketing.

I have a friend whose blog I often read simply because his passion comes through so clearly in his writing. In turn, I simply share his posts on Facebook or Twitter whenever one of his messages resonates particularly strongly with me. Not for a moment did I think anything would come to me for tweeting or sharing his post, but I was getting thousands of visitors to my website and profile within days of doing so. And all because I had shared that post…now, I never saw that coming, but it did. That’s the power of friendship marketing. I’m beginning to notice that there is a distinct difference between those that choose to work around the clocks to simply network and those that work equally hard to make friends. I know which camp I’d rather be in.

Sometimes, you follow someone on Twitter in the hope of being followed in return, and sometimes you add someone on Facebook hoping that they’ll add you in return. That is not what I’m talking about here. Adding hash tags to let someone know that you follow back is not friendship, it’s purely professional. That is almost purely about the gains on offer an reciprocity (you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours). I am instead talking about building not connections to connect, but connections to people via honest to goodness conversations. It’s very difficult to build relationships 140 characters at a time, but it’s not impossible. Social media has a personal upside that has been ignored up until now, and those that take advantage of friendship will stand to gain the most.
