What is Social Media?

is social media for b2b
Is Social Media for B2B?
  • There are IT-oriented communities like Slashdot (, Dzone ( and ITtoolbox ( that are successful because technology buyers are heavy social media consumers and comfortable with the technology, but very little in the way of B2B-specific sites.
  • One exception worth noting is a relatively new site called FYIndOut ( If you’ve ever used Angie’s List ( to find a home repair contractor or Epinions ( for reviews of consumer products, FindOut wants to be a combination of those sites but focused on B2B products and services. It will be interesting to see how that model performs.
