Social Media Marketing Ecosystem Explained

Here at The Ad Contrarian world headquarters, there's nothing we like better than a good ecosystem.

So when we came across* this awesome ecosystem for social media marketing, well, how do you resist that?

Now, we know some of you Luddites just aren't up-to-date on these things. So, as a service to our readers, we are publishing the attached chart of the social media marketing ecosystem which we hijacked from some social media website.

Give it a good once over, and then a comprehensive explanation follows.

The explanation:

As you can see, the World Wide Web has 4 big shaded circles and some small blue ones. There are also boxes that resemble credit cards and brown things shaped like stop signs. The whole thing kind of looks like the nucleus of an atom designed by Congress. On the inside of all these shapes there are words that make social media geeks go vaporous, like "Twitter" and "YouTube." On the outside there are arrows. The arrows go back and forth and crisscross and if they were made of wool they'd make a nice sweater. Sadly, two of MSN's stop signs have been ejected from the nucleus, but please don't tell Bill Gates about this or we'll all be in deep shit.

There you go.

Okay, so I don't want to hear anymore of this crap that I don't understand social media.

*Big thanks to Guest for this.
