Does anyone know this new website "www.afrikabook.com"?

I recently discovered this new website really interesting that is changing Africa. What is AfrikaBook? AfrikaBook is a social networking website, but it’s not like any other social networking site out there today. It offers african users the ability to compile things they like and enjoy. Instead of printing out ideas, emailing yourself important information or even bookmarking sites you want to check out in the future, AfrikaBook offers you the ability to create virtual pinboards where you can keep and organize that information. Both images and videos can be posted on the website, whether it’s your own image or an image that bookmarks a URL online. Not only can you enjoy posting your own ideas and favorites, but you can follow others and see what others are posting as well. The Rise of Visual Social Media Within the past year, the web has started become a more visual place. All you have to do is look at how the design for Facebook has evolved and you’ll notice that visuals are becoming more important. Visual social media has become a top breakout trend this year and businesses are beginning to realize how important it is to show people their products instead of merely using text to market products. The marketing thought of a couple years ago was that “content is king.” While content is still definitely an important part of a marketing plan, many are beginning to realize the worth of a single picture for marketing purposes. Web users and their shifting habits have also influenced the visual social media trend. People are engaging with social media differently, often using pictures instead of typing, since so many are using smart phones and tablets. One study showed that social media site users find pictures the most engaging. AfrikaBook grabbed onto the concept of visual social media before it became popular, and now the visual social network is beginning to explode in popularity. This has led to the emergence of AfrikaBook marketing, something that online marketers can no longer afford to ignore. Basic AfrikaBook Terms to Know Before delving deeper into the basics of AfrikaBook, you need to know and understand a few helpful terms that are used on this website. Here are a few of the basic terms to know: - Pin – When you add an image or video on Pinterest, it’s called a pin. - Pinning – The act of sharing visual content on the website is called pinning. - Board – A board is where you can group and organize your pins by topic. - Pinner – Someone sharing pins or visual content on the Pinterest website. - Like – The like button allows you to like what someone else has pinned without pinning it yourself. - Repinning – The act of pinning something that someone already pinned. Why African People Use AfrikaBook It’s also important to realize why people are using AfrikaBook? Why is it getting so popular In Africa? Not only are people using this website socially, but they are using it for fun. People enjoy checking out new recipes, viewing funny pictures and checking out what their friends are pinning. Some keep up with current trends in African fashion on AfrikaBook. The site is engaging and interesting, bringing users back again and again. Of course, savvy marketers are beginning to take advantage of the site as well, using it for branding, to drive website traffic and more.  (Dec 23, 2013 | post #1)
