Are you asking your questions on social media or searching for answers? (study via @stonetemple)

There's a great study at stonetemple that got me thinking: Is all that "Listen to social media buzz" concept we are preaching useless? Is search still what really matters, despite the whole social media boom we've been seeing?

Some things can't be really found by searching. Social media is best for collecting opinions, getting gigs or referrals. Search is best for finding quick facts.

What do you use most?

Search Engine for gathering facts; social media for sharing

I agree. For quick facts, search engine tops my list as well as, I believe, majority of people. Social media is great for sharing and getting opinion.
