Nobody really wants to carry two mobile phones. But it does happen, and it can be embarrassing. Ever have your Lady GaGa ring tone on your iPhone boom in the middle of a meeting? Or have your Blackberry suddenly ding incessantly with urgent e-mails from work—and you’re on a date? It’s probably fair to say consumers drive smart phone hype more than small and medium businesses do. It’s also fair to say that iPhones—a consumer device—have made an impression on the small and medium business market and that Blackberrys—a business tool—have made their claim in the consumer market.

It’s pretty simple to conclude that having a public Facebook page is a “De facto” now a day; we are even finding businesses without websites are using Facebook instead as a platform to market themselves.
