Deal with Upset Customers on Social Media
One of the most common objections heard from businesses considering social media is that â€œpeople will say bad things about our brand.â€ When hearing this, marketers often politely remind the boss or client that these buy twitter followers south america conversations about the brand â€“ good or bad â€“ are happening on the social web regardless of whether or not you choose to engage.

Continued quest for personal privacy
With an increasing level of publicity surrounding data sharing and privacy on the internet, several platforms have tried to step it up a notch in 2014 by promising more privacy to their users. Newcomer Ello, for example, promises never to sell user data, whilst Snapchat, Whisper, YikYak and Telegram have each taken a different approach to the social stratosphere. These platforms allow users to engage in conversations privately among their friends, or in some cases, buy twitter followers connect with strangers while still keeping their identity private. Earlier in 2014, a Stanford student leaked hacked photos that revealed a line of code in Facebookâ€™s Messenger app that suggested a payment and transfer platform could be on the cards. The payment system would allow Facebook users to not just make payments for goods over social media (hence the integration of a â€˜buyâ€™ button) but also send money to friends via direct debit.
Interest-based, not people-based

The main takeaway here is that new social networks are likely to be more interest-focused in 2015, uniting users through common hobbies and passions.
