  1. Hi Ruchika,

    I think Social media are one of the fastest growing industries in the world. I also believe that social media have two face & it’s on us what we want to keep above on which one. I think with the social media you can increase your brand awareness, more inbound traffic, improved search engine ranking, higher conversion rate.

  2. Hi Ruchika & Vishwajeet,

    It’s great to read your post. I was busy with my projects, that’s the reason I was inactive a bit, specially reading & commenting was completely off.

    But Anyways, Thanks for the interesting & informative read. Keep up the good work and enjoy the holidays.

    A Very Happy New Year ! Cheers

  3. Hi, Vishwajeet!
    What do you think will happen to social media in the near future.
    Today people are too lazy to read long blog posts, they prefer to watch videos. Now I see, a lot of people prefer to scroll images on Instagram over watching video on YouTube.
    What’s next?
    Do you think, some new form of delivering information will be discovered?

  4. Hi Ruchika and Vishwajeet,
    I think people love the short form of social media and don’t always read the full stories. They like the pictures, videos and quick way of getting news and content without spending a lot of time on any one story or topic.
    I know when I land on blog posts that are over 2500 words I tend to gloss over and lose interest.
    Have a great rest of the week and year ahead!
