Social media has been playing quite an important role among consumer electronics products. Many groups talk about the latest smartphone they have bought, they debate on features and so on. Social media is just like chit chatting among friends and family. Its like spreading word of mouth. In this age when people dont have time to meet near and dear ones personally, these social media sites are sources where they can virtually meet and discuss.

But my point is that why businesses should try to convert a pure social networking platform like say Facebook into an Advertising platform for their businesses.

@prabhakar_deosthali, true no body likes to see the ads. Infact you can apply your arguments to television also. Television is meant for entertainment and no one wants to see ads on television. But if companies cant tap ad market television and social networks then how are going to reach out to the bigger population ?

Anandvy,

I agree  regarding the paid channels availability without commercials.

But my point is that why businesses should try to convert a pure social networking platform like say Facebook into an Advertising platform for their businesses.  The basic idea of social networking is to bring people together and allow them to interact , exchange ideas, share experiences like being a part of a global society. It is like a gossip corner after office hours where you want to shed all the burden and tension and anxieties of your day's work and just want to unwind.

people today need pure entertainment .

@prabhakar_deosthali, I think you can get pure entertainment but you need to pay extra permium if you want ad-free content. For example currenly HD transmission in India is ad-free because the monthly subscription charge is pretty high compared to the normal transmission channels.

This is good up to a certain extent but if you try to overdo the buzzing it becomes a nuisance to the followers and the whole concept of buzzing and following will be lost.

Whether it is radio of yesterday, TV of today or the social media of tomorrow, the business is invading all kind of places which are actually meant for entertainment .

Why can't we spare  pure individual/family entertainment and social contact and gossip sites  from commercializing .

people today need pure entertainment . Social media like Facebook or twitter are supposed to be the tools for individuals to express themselves and connect with others , not the billboards for business advertising, I suppose

and my fear is that once it becomes a mainstream activity, followers will not have the time or the patience to sort the good stuff from the junk

@Peter, thanks for the post. I totally agree with Brians comments that followers will not have the time or the patience to sort the good stuff from the junk. In future so much data will be generated on social media, users will find it to follow and understand all the data that is present on social media forums.
