Few more reasons cited in the article are:
- The social networking sites narrowly appeal to college and high school students, providing a challenge as far as measuring results and yielding a limited amount of actionable data, said Steve Cone, CMO of Epsilon.
- Retailers see 20 cents in e-commerce revenue for every email delivered, showing the measurability and profitability of the email channel in times when people are seeking those two attributes, said by Kevin Mabley, SVP, Epsilon Strategic Services, who also said marketers are still placing value on email.

1. Firstly, due to less measurability parameters its sort of difficult for advertisers to rely on social networks since ROI becomes murky with complexity.buy soma online usa
2. Secondly, I still believe that social networks are not out of the scope to lure advertisers primarily because of demographics, key influencers, word-of-mouth and referrals that social networks generates. I wrote about it sometime back (Click here).buy valium for sale
Until then it would be interesting to see how advertisers, marketers and brand specialists react to this in due course of time. So what are you thoughts on this? Do you think it’s high time for marketers to look for alternative medium or social networking still has some steam left?
