Social media is an ever changing beast.  Change or die, we say!  New sites pop up daily that might to be similar to what’s already out there, while others are a new concept altogether.  It is always important to keep up and stay ahead of those sites.  They might end up being just a trend or it might stay around for good, like Facebook.  There are always those sites that are looked over and no one realizes how much they are worth knowing about.  

One new site called Medium, it's essentially a blogging site.  The creators of this site are Evan Williams and Biz Stone, the creators of Twitter and Blogger, respectively.  According to PR Daily, it is similar to Twitter, but you aren’t limited to 140 words that Twitter limits you to.  The way this site works is you write a blog, the blog will appear in one of the ‘collections’ on the site or on its homepage, then users of the site will vote on the posts.  As long as you have a twitter account, you can log in an start voting on posts. 

Have a nagging secret or confession?  Meet, Whisper, it's an app for your smartphone that lets people anonymously post their secrets.  After they are posted it gives users the options of responding to it, send a message or just leave a heart.  According to Business Insider, more than 1 million people have uploaded roughly 8 million whispers.  This app has caused problem in high schools.  This is definitely an app worth looking into.

These are just two of our favs that are new on the horizon.   Do you have a new favorite that you'd like to share?  How do you see your business benefiting from these site we talked about? Leave us a comment and share your ideas.
