"Some of the fastest-growing sources of information flow are the social-networking sites whose most visible-and powerful-presences include Facebook and Twitter" (Micu, Dedeker, Lewis, Moran, Netzer, Plummer, & Rubinson, 2011). Mass marketing through social media, bill boards, news papers, and magazines are just some ways that a company can increase profits and also move closer to the dream of being a Fortune 500 company.
