Once thought of as a passing craze among young adults, social media has taken the online world by storm. The glory days of Myspace and Friendster may have fallen but other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ have risen and now breaking ground, conquering unexplored markets and business sectors. Casual Internet users now are depending on social networks and social media to interact with family and friends, and companies are relying on the social movement to sell goods through online advertising.
