Networks are characterized as individual networks containing the relations of an individual. Every individual will have his/her own unique perception towards the use of social networking sites.

I have come across this post on Paid Media Strategies. 


Display-based digital marketing is essentially your regular advertising content but distributed online or in-app. Doing so makes an otherwise mass media channel behave like a BTL channel to the extent that customization of content is possible, response can be measured and attributability of outcomes to marketing campaigns is higher.

Search-based digital marketing is likely to replace telemarketing, classifieds, bulk sms and other 'response' based channels due to lower cost and higher campaign velocity; but it will co-exist with mass media advertising since the two serve different objectives.

Social-media based advertising is likely to replace word-of-mouth publicity as people spend more time on social media than with real people and hence they are more influenced by FB, Twitter, In'Gram, LinkedIn etc. Comapnies are yet to fully understand this channel since it is still evolving which is why ROI from this channel is inconsistent.

And finally there's a new form of online advertiing that I call 'Rating Management' where people before purchasing a product or service check its 'rating'. This channel will replace the traditional PR firms that use strategically placed content in newspapers and event sponsorships to create brand salience.

Thus Digital Marketing really is an umbrella under which the entire ecosystem of Sales, distribution, marketing, advertising, brand portfolio management, mass media advertising, BTL aand PR is undergoing a transformation to accommodate and reflect the underlying change in consumers' media consumption habits and buying behavior.
