As one of the hottest social media tools available, Twitter is revolutionizing the way we communicate with each other. I am pleased to announce that in addition to the Facebook integration, Mountain Media will be adding an interface for Twitter in our next Mountain Commerce update. This new feature will allow merchants to easily manage display setting and account preferences from within the Mountain Commerce platform. The next Mountain Commerce update is scheduled for Q1 2011.
In December of 2010 both Google and Bing have come out and said their search results are being influenced by Twitter and Facebook. Google calls it “Author Authority” and Bing uses the term “Social Authority.” Back in April of 2010, Facebook released its “Like Button” feature as part of its world dominance strategy. In the first week over 50,000 websites added the new feature. Some SEO experts believe “page likes” will have a similar effect on search engine rankings as back links.
Now that we know Facebook is influencing search results, Mountain Media has decided to add a feature to our eCommerce platform that will let our merchants add the Facebook Like Buttons to their website with ease. We expect this feature to be rolled out in the next Mountain Commerce update (Q1 2011).
