Re: Marketing Cars and other big ticket items on Twitter

dont have any particular input on your article, but Ive been wondering lately how in some niches - especially in e-learning - people do not really have a need to search for content. they really just have a need to find content.

and that twitter might actually be more effective for this (in the future, if twitter usage continues to grow).

heres an example: my dad is learning french right now. I think searching the web for content to practice french, by using google...isnt really a great way to discover the content he'll need to learn (i know this from my p ersonal experience as a teenager learning languages).

However...if he could follow like-minded people on twitter who regularly share relevant content...that might be a much more time-effective way to discover the content he needs.

Im really wondering if - in certain niches - twitter, facebook, and basically just sharing content...truly is a better way to discover content than search engines (unless they ever become truly awesome at serving you the content oyu really want..based on personalization,etc.).

Can you see this happening in e-learning (or certain other industries)? it really being about content discovery, and social media being a lot more effective than search (for the foreseeable future) at this?

Any idea if twitter+facebook already have a big share of the traffic development pie in certain industries? I think i once read this about real estate or lawyers...(that twitter was already big in those industries)
