Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, LinkedIn.... The list is growing all the time and you can not underestimate the power of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Social Media offer a great channel to regularly communicate with your customers and build a community around your brand or business.
Most Social Media sites offer some kind of API (Application Programming Interface) to allow your website to display activity from your social networking page. On the flip side, many also allow you to feed your website updates through to a social media page automatically, and most are able to 'talk' to each other and update one social networking site from another, saving you from having to update numerous different places.
Facebook has over 1.06 billion users, 618 million of these are 'Daily Active Users' *, so it makes sense to be a part of the site and integrate it with your website.
