At My End

Branch is an effective social media if you want to have long time of conversing. Also, it will focus on few people as you can’t talk everything to every people you can encounter. You will have to add them through their Twitter account. Branch is a good start of creating an almost “group chat” for niche of people who share the same interests as you are. This can also be effective for niche marketing strategies.

However, Branch is still an infant social media. As it is still needs to be synchronized with Twitter account, it indicates that it can’t stand alone and needs to be supported. As for it’s recent status, it can be engaging for consumer level only wherein you’ll got to track down conversation of other users, who maybe a close friend of yours. Indeed this is a new place to talk. But, in a business perspective, it can’t be efficient to use. Perhaps, in later days to come when Branch is already developed and can serve to larger group of people without the support of other social media sites it can be utilized and incorporated in social media optimization.
