There's a certain pattern to media adoption, like a wave that suddenly gathers momentum. The keen folk, the ones with an interest in what's on offer and always taking on new things - are like boarders, riding the wave.

and Twitter are exploding with businesses tardily jumping on for the ride, while the early adopters are starting to get bored with Tumblr, making inroads into Pinterest
and deciding whether Instagram will be the Next Big Thing.
