These days many business and organisations are far more active in different ways online than simply using their site like an online company brochure. With the popularity of blogs, eBrochures and social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter, the web is bursting with activity. Much of this activity can be and is used by businesses to engage their customers and potential customers. It goes without saying that enough thought and time should be devoted to planning and creating business accounts for Social Media websites. Due to the viral nature of these sites, a careless comment or post can be spread around the internet very quickly. Rather than enhance your business it can provide unwanted attention and detract from your hard built reputation very quickly.
We can help you plan and design your Social Media strategy to ensure that you can achieve all you set out to do. Here are some of the Social Media Services that Webs For Everyone can provide to help strengthen your online presence.

Twitter is not limited to a specific age group. I have heard Twitter ably described as 'Texting for grown-ups', which is quite a good way to begin to understand Twitter. Read More
- Set up an RSS feed - RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and it is a data feed for providing users with frequently updated content. The RSS feeds are ideal for blog entries, news headlines and audio. An RSS document can include full or summarised text plus other details such as dates and authors. To read a RSS feed you would need a RSS reader, feed reader or aggregator which are either web based or desk top based.

- Bookmarking websites - Social bookmarking sites are websites that allow users to post their favourite websites by using keywords or tags to categorise them. This allows other users to take these bookmarks and add them to their collection or share them with other people. Social Bookmarkers save the links to pages that they wish to remember or share with others. They can be thought of a bit like an online list of favourite or useful websites. This can then be accessed from anywhere without the restriction of having saved it to a desk bound PC. Read more
