In case you haven’t heard, social media is changing for the better. There are three websites that I’d highly recommend you join today. One of them is 10 years old and one is only a couple of months in age but has already set records for traffic. What are the three sites? Are you ready for a surprise?
Why am I recommending StumbleUpon? The site recently hit a huge milestone. Its Stumblebar – the StumbleUpon toolbar – has registered 25 billion clicks. Yes, that’s 25 billion.
And it has done this in the last 10 years.
Internet marketers have known for a long time that StumbleUpon drives massive traffic to websites. There are good reasons why.
When you put these two things together – massive traffic and 25 billion – StumbleUpon is the place to be.
Google+ has gone down in history as the fastest growing website. It reached 25 million visitors in one month. That’s faster than MySpace, Twitter, and even Facebook. And it isn’t even out of beta yet.
I believe Google+ will be the social media website to be on this time next year. Better join it now.
OK, so why Klout? It’s not so much a social media website as it is a social media metrics website. Which is my point.
Until now, Klout only measured your influence at Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. However, recently the site has added Tumblr, YouTube, Flickr, Blogger, Instagram, Last.fm, and Foursquare, taking the number of sites it tracks to ten. It will soon add Quora, Facebook pages, Yelp, Posterous, and WordPress.com.
I believe Klout is serious about becoming the premier social media metrics tool online. Join it now.
