Twitter | Is it a Fad?

Spammers abound in most social networks and Twitter is no different. Only a few of my contacts actually communicates.  Should I stay or should I go? I found an interesting article about Twitter and here is an excerpt. To see the whole article go to www.computoredge.com  

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

“Some call Twitter a “fad,” and it’s uncertain how the model can turn a profit. An April 2009 Nielsen report, “Twitter Quitters,” found that “more than 60 percent of U.S. Twitter users fail to return the following month.” In a June 10, 2009 blog post, Nine Inch Nails lead singer Trent Reznor announced that he’s “out” of the social networking game. Reznor said that the noise outweighs the benefits. Since that post, Reznor continues to contribute, but no longer accepts RTs (return tweets).

While there is some obvious fall-off, Neeman said that the audience is there, and the high amount of active users proves it. “If the audience is well read, technologically savvy and connected to the social media,” Neeman said, “Twitter is great.”

While there may be some changes in store for Twitter, Toliver thinks the concept will remain. “All these sites will evolve. I don’t think there’s any going back, though,” Toliver said. “Now that it’s here, we’re all too curious to see what other people are doing at any given time. I know several people who admit to being addicted.””
