I don't see why google wouldn't pick it up, it's data on the page.

We run a photography forum. which for all practical purposes is a niche market.

Twitter, Facebook and Flickr all have some impact and many of our member use those (and similar) services.

But our growth rate in terms of membership, post rate and bandwidth (content delivery) has accelerated in the last 18 months and appears to be continuing to do so.

We hope that we deliver a good useful service that people want to be an active part of.

I'd have to say that Facebook and Twitter have actually helped my site's traffic increase. We are a NFL football site and our news forum is automatically sent to Twitter, Facebook as well as a handful of other sites. I think the key to making Twitter and Facebook work for you instead of against you is to have fresh and interesting content. The niche I am in is driven by up to the minute accurate news so people are always scouring any available avenue. We just aim to deliver that need.

Our forum continues to add more and more members daily (30-60), even with all of the other social networking sites out there. People like to communicate in more than soundbytes, so I think that content-driven forums (rather than purely chat forums) will continue to florish.

Well for the past weeks we have seen an increment on Facebook's connectivity and Twitter's monetize-tion... and for the last year I've noticed a 'post activity decrease' on this forum? am I right or it's just me?

p.s.

there are a lot of articles popping up on " Why i left , hate , sucks, and more about facebook"
I just left also after 3 years it was crazy, but a friend called me up and noticed that i was not on it anymore and other friends have noticed also( that was a face book standard comment worrying about nothing loll ) but he told me that out of many friends he has he has block there comments and wall comments and apparently this is becoming very common where if you want to talk to somebody you have to leave a message. I think you can see a rebound happening here and i think facebook is going to need all a our help to keep them going and that is why they are developing these mods to allow our forums and many other scripts to connect to face book , we will just become part of there network. there is also a trend where folks who are signing up are not using there real names like you would at a forum.

here is a good reenactment video on face book

I have not done much research on this subject but recently there has been a big uproar about Facebook privacy act where people are clamming there information can be sold off.

Could this be mistaken by the use of the the new facebook Api that will allow facebook users full personal information integration with other Forums or portals ?

If this is the case do you think this could have some sort of a impact on how a user would judge a portal or forum that will take your facebook privet information.

but again i am sure that vb will notify and give the new user a choice on what information the would like to transfer over.

With Twitter and their privacy issues as of late, they are going to end up being a passing fad.

I have not followed up on trends but you have all different types of websites do you think there all falling in visits due to the social networking.

I have to admit even finding good content on topics is to come by that is why i will always look for a forums on the subject but i was reading an articles on blogger s that there seeing a trend of people who write blogs will read other peoples blogs but there not getting much new visitors and the new generation are looking at social networking to get there message out. Food For thought. but it still looks good for the use of forums.

Twitter is a failure of biblical proportions in that it frequently provides false information from non-credible and unverifiable sources. If anything, I find that to be beneficial in that those seeking credible information frequent my forums. For me, Twitter eliminates those who believe everything they read. If anything, I should consider writing them a Thank You letter.

haven't noticed twitter/facebook taking traffic away from my site , like all new technology you need to learn to adapt to it , find out how you can make it work with your site , or figure out what you can offer that the social networks don't

did you mean "Facebook"
Twitter hasn't had any privacy issue, Facebook on the other hand..

which neither are going anywhere anytime soon

I would like a twitter login for my currently 3.8 site, I know 4.x has facebook, but an openID login would be so much nicer

Maybe you're just not following the right people
Twitter is full of very useful info and can be a great source for one on one customer service.


I don't see either Facebook or Twitter hurting my site though.
