Ever since Time Magazine named YOU, the computer user, Person of the Year, people are paying more attention to sites like YouTube, Flickr, and what is called Web 2.0 sites because they encourage you to participate.
But Hitwise recently released a study that shows that surprisingly few site visitors are actually creating content, uploading videos and photos, and participating. For details on the report, I suggest visiting DaniWeb.com for this excellent post with statistics.
To me, this is a great opportunity for people who want to get known and get found. The more you participate, the more your name will show up in web searches. Small business owners, writers, authors, speakers, entrepreneurs: are you paying attention? Start participating wherever you can.
