Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in 1994 and started it as an online book retailer. Its success was that it could offer thousands of titles without having the actual stock as they would just source the retailer or publishers to get hold of a copy. It took Bezos all of 7 years to make a profit, but it was worth the wait as Amazon.com is now a worldwide retail giant and sells millions of books and other products to hundreds of countries.
The company was founded in 1995 and quickly grew from side hobby to the world’s most popular online bidding site. From 1996 to 1997 the number of bids hosted by eBay shot from 200,000 to 2 million and in 1998 Pierre Omidyar became a billionaire as the company went public. eBay is now the world’s most popular online marketplace and continues to grow annually with a $8 billion revenue for 2013.
Twitter was ranked as one of the top 10 most visited webpages with users tweeting about 340 million times a day and with over half a billion registered users. Its revenues are gained from ‘promoted tweets’ to companies who want their results to show up on the Twitter search engine. Huge numbers of tweets are promoted by limiting the amount of characters to only 140 – ensuring that users post more tweets in one day. Twitter was founded in 2006 by five individuals and rose as a popular social network site as well as search engine. The company also earns money by selling the public tweets and information of its users to data mining companies, which in turn sell the data to advertising companies. Twitter has targeted an audience that no other social media has been able to target due to its unique methods of keeping tweets brief and with rapid, user friendly social networking the site looks only to continue growing with more social media market share over time.
