‘The potential for marketers to exploit the emerging trend of online social networking groups’ - This paper aims to analyse the recent trend of online social network services and its implications from a marketing perspective. A limited amount of research has been done on the subject of social networking as a whole, but its potential for marketers apart from viral marketing has not been explored. The amount of literature available on the subject is thus also limited and restricted largely to newspaper articles and papers by blogging evangelists. This paper includes a survey conducted among cosmopolitan elite which represent the typical audience which has potential to be targeted through social networking services and analyses their trends and behaviours. Our findings are highlighted on the basis of the use of these services on counts for market research, advertising and promotion and propagation marketing. The limitations and implications of the findings are chronicled with an Indian marketer’s perspective based on the trend and internet usage patterns of the internet user base.
