  4. I think if we try to branding ourselves, we should not only use one microblogging sites. The more microblogs we used, the more chance that people can know about us. Facebook and Twitter have the most user. But in China, we can’t use Facebook, so I will choose Twitter as my primary personal branding tool in order to promote myself around the world. I know that most people in America use Facebook only, I recommend all of you to start using microblogs that can be use world wide.

    The best microblogs is not exist yet, so I am looking forward to use see more better microblogs come out in the future.

  6. Microblogging sites are a good platform to spread information, it can be a online society with different type of people, if we want branding some things on those online platform that we need to clear characteristics of those different social median platform, than combine products or services which we want branding. Attention is value in today’s social media, how to catch user’s eyes which is most important thing to focus on.

  7. In China, most of people love to use weibo, a famous social media likes Twitter. in another words, There are a lot of functions that it owns. More than billions of Chinese people to use.As a microblogging, you are allowed to write within 140 words. At first, most of people argue about that it is humanization.However, It is can prove and challenge everyone’s disire of conquesty is how strong.When you find you can describe one thing with few words and as soon as possibily to reduce words to show your language or writing skill, it is amazing, like network terminology . Actually, it also illustrates that people are more lazy and even express with number or picture, which more adapts to our curiosity to attracted by you. It is funny that most of people think about why only Weibo words allowed by 140 words , but not 150, 200 or 100? This is its bringding. Noeadays, human love go through information with less words as this is a fast-food culture for web.Contrast with using headline to keep our eyes open to go through information, people are willing to see some key words , at the same time, to know or share what happened just now.

  9. On my opinion, i think social media in business is very important.In recent years, the growing popularity of social media, social networking sites are popular among consumers, especially the younger generation of consumers, has a huge number of users and a wide range of social influence. In social media, Facebook is undoubtedly one of the typical. From 2004 to 2010 founding, Facebook users around the world, its social functions from a single, rapidly extend to games, shopping, advertising and other integrated functions, and thus derived from retail compelling opportunity.Per month, about 750 million active users on Facebook, which constitutes an important basis for the retail industry. Moreover, with the complex social relationships between users, so that the mass in the form of product information more diverse and effective, a user’s purchasing behavior is more easily shared. Because of this, some retailers see the opportunities to carry out more targeted marketing campaigns on Facebook, for example, Best Buy and Wal-Mart has started selling gift cards (Facebookcredit), through the Facebook social media naturally bring interactive marketing, will brands and consumers naturally linked together. Good user experience also enhances the social connections between people, and establish a good social platform.

  10. I personally would say after extensive research that twitter is the best branding tool out their because, the 140 characters is all an in experienced blogger needs to get his/her blogs out their and also you could study your business growth on how many followers you have, like lets say you have a start up company and you want your business name out their, and you start a twitter account, and you want to study your limits, you start by following people and keeping up on your tweets, most people follow back and some don’t if you have over 500 followers in a week then you know you have a future with you company but if you have 100 and it’s not moving up anytime soon, you know your business is doomed, twitter is the perfect example of micro blogging because you send out little messages that people can respond to and make comments on and even send messages to them asking if they like your product, so twitter helps you establish a platform that can take you places like from twitter you could start a blog and from a blog to a website.

  11. Social media has grown over the years and has turned into a platform that people, like businesses build a brand. Eight years ago I started using the blogspot website for micro blogging. After a couple of years I stopped using it due to the lack of commitment. In fact, I started that before I started facebook. Now I use twitter and facebook for micro blogging and posting fun memories. I am careful on my posts and ensure that I posts things are unprofessional or not flattering. As for Twitter, I have started to use that platform to read the news.

    Tumblr is kind of a mirco-blogging and social media combo. It allows you to create a personal brand through photos, videos, chats and links, and even audio. A user may even customize their own page, and these days even the background color of your profile can be considered personal branding. A potential employer or client should be able to get an idea of who you are, (or what type of business you own) through the photos, posts, and articles you support or provide links to on your social media platform. Personal branding should, above all, make you stand out. Above is a link to an article on other microblogging sites as well. There are so many!!

  13. Facebook is hands down the best social media site to promote your business of any kind. For some strange reason, Facebook has a feature that will show you websites on on your timeline on things you have looked up in the past. For example, I was looking to buy a certain pair of shoes a few months ago and now I see a different shoe site on my timeline every time I get on Facebook.

  16. In U.S. Facebook is the most popular social media, but people can’t use it in China, the most popular social media is Weibo in China, so I think Weibo is the good way to promoted personal branding in China. In Weibo, it is much people promoted their personal branding, because it is much people would use Weibo when they have free time that more and more people would know their personal branding. And Weibo have one thing make people like use, it is Weibo just can post 140 words in one time, so people need to think about how to use these 140 words to attract other notice it. If can use 140 words to make people notice personal branding that you would be success.

  17. Social media has given us an opportunity and helped us to speak up for ourselves, meaning expressing myself without burden of i’m being watched. Just like, when someone stared at you, we act little different or become more aware of actions, because we know that I’m being watched by someone. It has some good side also some down sides, like we can’t be ourselves. But with social media, especially with microblogging site, we are able to express ourselves more than ever in way better ways. I started blogging back in 2007, then stopped, but now I co-write a blog with my friend. On our blog, we can write whatever we want and be ourselves, it gives us a sense of freedom. And I’m able to brand myself on my way, because my mind is different than others, because we are one and only version of ourselves.

  18. In my own personal opinion, those microblogging sites that assist with promoting my multimedia ventures and profiles are those that covet. For example I would use instagram for photography, vine and facebook for short videos made. These microblogging sites hold great potential in being able to show case peoples work and being able to boost their status and reputation.
