In creating an online community, the site can take social networking to a higher level and many sites are starting to take part in this shift.

NY (Vocus/PRWEB) January 26, 2011

In 2010 Facebook surprised a lot of people when they overtook Google as the most visited website in the world. This got a lot of people wondering what is next for social media and, with the power that social media clearly has on the internet, how can other websites use social media and social networking to their advantage?

While Facebook and Twitter have opened their doors to small businesses and social groups, many websites have taken their social media into their own hands by creating social media sites and networks that cater to their users. Many sites, such as SocialGo, market a forum software that websites can employ on their site, increasing the amount of users as well as reach the users with information that is relevant to the purpose of the site.

In creating an online community, the site can take social networking to a higher platform. They can use the information that is supplied to them by the user, much like Facebook does, to discern a demographic of what updates and improvement their product does well with what type of individual.

Having your own social network on the site also gives your site more traffic. Users on your site will stay longer and have more internal clicks, pulling down your bounce rate and giving your site a higher ranking. A unique, free social network site gives your members the ability to develop an online community surrounding the topic of the site and propels them to check back in to see new developments with friends and updates on information.

Social media has arrived and with it a variety of ways in which to expand the largest website to the smallest online community. Forum software, such as the software offered by SocialGo, may be the next step in creating a personalized social media presence for your company or website.
