In recent years, we have witnessed an unprecedented growth of social networking. The ever-increasing list of such networks include content sharing sites such as YouTube and Flickr, social networking platforms such as Facebook and Myspace, blogs, web forums, social bookmarking sites such as Delicius and massive online message exchange such as Twitter.
The INTER-SOCIAL project aims at exploring social networking to enhance the competitiveness of SMEs in the region. Social networks offer new means and forums for world-wide product promotion as well as huge repositories of data for advanced market analysis and trend identification.
Such activities are very relevant to the geographical regions targeted by the project, since they provide effective means for internationalization, require no specific infrastructure other than Internet access, are environmental friendly and are oriented towards the service provider sector.
