The changes that Facebook announced at their fMC event in New York on Wednesday represent a fundamental shift in brands’ relationship with Facebook.

Je vais vous présenter une infographie concernant les usages des marketeurs sur les réseaux sociaux en 2010.

Older social media users have grown more likely to follow brands on social media sites as they’ve gained more experience interacting on them, but younger adults still outnumber them in this activity. Millennials’ enthusiasm for making friends with brands, though, may not be too far above average.
Valuations of social media companies are starting to remind us of 1999. But are they overvalued? Now that Microsoft bought Skype for $8.5 billion, LinkedIn's IPO valued the company at $8.9 billion after its first day of trading , and Facebook's estimated value is pushing $100 billion , you might be starting to wonder if buying into user numbers rather than revenue is a good idea. Social media site G+ , a community of professionals, entrepreneurs and academics, put together this detailed infographic that lays it all out in front of you.
What’s the real cost of social media? Last week we looked at an interesting infographic on the value of social commerce and today we wanted to share another interesting infographic on the cost of social media. So how do your social media costs compare? These stats, which have been aggregated by Focus.com , show some good insights into how much brands are paying, on average, for their social media strategy and activities. The second half of this infographic shows some good stats on the benefits of social media, including a comparison of what an average Facebook fan will spend on certain brands compared to a non-fan.
Sept marques participent au déploiement de «Facebook Deals» dans l'Hexagone, permettant aux internautes de bénéficier de promotions lorsqu'ils visitent une enseigne. Par petites touches, le projet Facebook prend forme. En septembre 2010, le réseau social avait lancé dans l'Hexagone son service «Lieux» qui permettait à ses huit millions d'utilisateurs mobiles de signaler leur présence dans un endroit - restaurant, salle de cinéma, lieu public. Ce service était le préalable nécessaire au service publicitaire «Deals» ou «Bons plans» que Facebook déploie ce lundi à travers cinq pays européens, dont la France. «C'est une extension naturelle pour que les marques et les distributeurs puissent récompenser les utilisateur, générer du trafic en magasin, fidéliser les visiteurs mais aussi générer du bouche à oreille à travers les notifications sur le mur des utilisateurs», explique Damien Vincent, directeur de Facebook France, au Figaro.
Facebook annonce avoir dépassé la barre des 20 millions d'utilisateurs "actifs" en France (détenteurs de compte ayant effectué au moins une action sur le site lors des 30 derniers jours). "Plus de 60% de ces utilisateurs français se sont connectés tous les jours, soit 11 millions de personnes sur 24 heures, c'est très important en termes d'audience" a indiqué Damien Vincent, directeur commercial de Facebook France. Facebook totalise plus de 500 millions d'utilisateurs dans le monde. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Global credit and marketing services giant Experian has acquired Facebook Preferred Developer Consultant and Facebook Ads API beta participant Techlightenment . The acquisition will add social media advertising, brand monitoring, polling, and social CRM services to Experian’s portfolio that includes internet competitive intelligence from the previously acquired Hitwise, and email marketing. Experian can now offer an integrated web and social marketing solution to brands. The acquisition signals that major marketing companies may be ready to make investments in the future of social media advertising. The field requires special technologies that can be difficult to develop internally, so marketing companies may look to instead purchase existing tools. Hitwise indicated that Facebook was the most visited website of 2010 , making it obvious that Experian will have to offer Facebook advertising services if it wants to stay competitive.
There is no shortage of Groupon clones . With literally hundreds of daily deal sites popping up all over the world, it’s a pretty saturated market. Or maybe it’s the next big thing. Either way, AOL (our new corporate owner ) is about to find out.
Remember three years ago , when Microsoft paid a quarter-billion dollars for 1.6% of Facebook and the exclusive right to run banner ads across Facebook.com? Tell the truth, how many of you thought that was a killer business decision? I can’t say I did at the time. But as that deal is about to expire in 2011 , Facebook’s status as a revenue juggernaut is rarely questioned any more. In fact, I have been mulling over data from both companies, and I’m ready to declare in public my belief that Facebook will be bigger in five years than Google is right now , barring some drastic action or accident. Futhermore, Facebook will grow without needing to cut into Google’s core business of text ads, which are still 99% of Google’s profits .
It can be pretty hard to dig out the right facebook demographic data, but Mashable has done just that and interestingly, compared all US Facebook users to all US citizens. It show some great statistics like population growth, race, age, gender, most popular cities and state percentage of facebook users among a number of other great stats! I think the infographic left me a little short, it just didn’t seem like a detailed enough breakdown, but none the less a good one! You can view a super large version of this chart here .
