I had an interested thought this morning….
If someone were to ask you, who is _______ (fill in the blank with a name of someone you know about), how would you reply?
6 months ago, you might give a brief explanation and then follow up with a, “you should Google him/her.”
Today, I believe most of us would say, “You should Facebook him/her.”
This is a big deal for a few reasons
1- Just as the term Google became a verb, so has Facebook. When a website name becomes a verb, is that when it’s finally made the crossover to big time? *I know we’ve been using Facebook as a verb for a while, but I think it’s now a more used verb than Google.
2- People are turning to the core of their social sphere for a lot more these days. We’d rather refer to a stream of live information than turn to Google for their potentially dated insight.
I’ll prove it….Facebook me! You’ll find the most up-to-date, live information about me and what I do/ am doing. More so than on a Google search with dated web pages that I haven’t had the time to SEO!
