Is Your Website Social? Can it be Tweeted, Stumbled Upon and Facebook Shared?
Social Networking, such as Facebook and Twitter have come of age and many many purchase decisions are made based on friend recommendations over social media. This new Interactive, sharing space is known as “Web 2.0″ because the webspace is interactive and people can comment on and share media.
However, if your site is largely constructed of text as graphic elements and/or Flash, your site might not be readily shareable on Facebook and Twitter, which rely on Web 2.0 ready content delivered in standards compliant HTML, not Flash. In English this means, Facebook and Twitter can’t bookmark elements of your Flash Page, such as a picture or menu, and people cannot really interact with or recommend your companies products, menus, locations, etc. as an indivual, shareable piece of content, because they are trapped in Flash.
Encouraging Social Network Sharing. Beyond building your Website in Web 2.0 Standards Compliant markup, we can place buttons that encourage people to share your Website on Facebook and Twitter, so they will link back to your Website.
