Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and countless others have become the number one spot for those who visit the web. But can social media be a business? Nowadays anyone can make a blog or post a video on the web for the world to see. Our method of obtaining information has changed entirely from what it was before. Consequently, some people have contributed to the web in such a way that they are being payed to do so. And this money comes from advertising. Whether it’s on a blog or at the bottom of a YouTube video advertising has reached a new hight through social media. I believe there is a lot of money to be made through social media, it’s simply a matter of contributing something good enough for people want to see it. The more someone views my site or video the more money I can potentially make from advertising.
