We are all aware that Social Media is the latest, hottest trend. But is it a fad or a revolution?
Social Media has not only changed the way that people communicate socially but it has opened new and exciting doors in terms of the way that business and professionals now interact.
The truth of it is, is that if you have a service or product and you are not marketing it through online mediums such as social media then you will find it hard to remain competitive.
Directories are shrinking due to the FREE, effective advertising that Facebook offers while retailers are fighting for the right to determine their own trading hours just to compete with online spending.

It’s here to stay and there is no way around it.
