social media life cycle

I found this excellent blog entry from Social Media Center, in which the life span of social media is explained. They explain the four phases in the social media life cycle:

  1. Seeding
  2. Nurturing
  3. Harvesting
  4. Spreading
There are sub-cycles too. Their link, found in the first sentence of this post, contains a wonderful infographic on this life cycle. This examination makes perfect sense. Life cycles are so important.

New opportunities and challenges abound with the study of life cycles.
