In social media news today, Mashable reports on two new brand spaces: the Foursquare “Pages Gallery” and the possibility of brand pages on Twitter. According to InventorSpot, we can see that “cross-pollination amongst social networks has been a trend ever since Facebook tried to replicate Twitter’s tweets into its status updates and Foursquare’s geo-location components into its Facebook Places“, but now the tables have turned and other social media sites are “ripping” the brand page idea straight from Facebook.
According to some, Foursquare’s new feature will “make brand following easy”. Others argue that the new pages would “disturb the flow of Twitter” . There seems to be no doubt, however, that these new ideas could help boost revenue for Twitter and from the 1323 brands already using Foursquare.
