3. Read the following article and watch the video. What do you think about what it has to say about social media and business? Is this something you see now as a consumer? How might you approach social media professionally. http://daretosayit.com/blog/2011/03/is-social-media-a-fad/

I believe that social media is something that is here to stay for years to come. Not only has it spread rapidly throughout the world, but we think about the internet, it is no longer limited to just our computers. We take it with us on our phones, ipads, mp3 players, and even in our cars. Let’s face it, in the next twenty years; social media will consume nearly all forms of technology, and I believe that all businesses should adapt to this shift in the consumer lifestyle. 4 out of every 5 teenagers now has a facebook page, so while planning for the future, businesses should recognize these are their future consumers and appeal to them through mean that relate to their lifestyle. Advertisements on social networks are becoming more and more prevalent, and are sometimes highly successful ways companies are learning to adapt to the social media phenomenon
