Of late, I have realized that I the time I spend on G+ or FaceBook or Twitter’s site has gone down drastically. However, my activity on these networks has substantially increased.
I have done this by using FlipBoard where I am able to not only stream all my social network in one place but am also able to cross share across the different mediums seamlessly.
Though, twitter and Google+ allow you to share content via email apart from sharing within their platforms, that is not enough.
As a user, I want to be able to share my content seamlessly across platform. I spoke to a few of my other friends who are active on the social media have also indicated similar need.
By not enabling cross-platform sharing capabilities, the platforms are only inhibiting the time that people like me on their sites.
In this way, Youtube has done really well by enabling cross-platform sharing across the different platforms. I guess, this is also one reason why the average time spent on YouTube is on the increase and that on FaceBook, Twitter or G+ on the decline..
Hope that they realize this strong need and enable this soon. Till then the aggregators like FlipBoard will rule ;-
Is there any thing else that these social media behemoths have missed ? Do share your thoughts by commenting below or tweeting me @rmukeshgupta.
