Seth's Blog Géographie des réseaux sociaux : approches cartographiques Retour à la lettre d'information n°8 “Au niveau mondial, les internautes passent plus de temps sur les réseaux sociaux, de type Facebook ou LinkedIn, que sur leurs e-mails. Sur les marchés émergents, comme l’Amérique Latine, le Moyen-Orient et la Chine, le temps moyen hebdomadaire passé sur les réseaux sociaux est de plus de 5 heures, contre 4 heures passées à l’envoi et la réception d’emails. Les plus gros utilisateurs de réseaux sociaux sont la Malaisie (9 heures par semaine), la Russie ( plus de 8 heures) et la Turquie (près de 8 heures)”. Ces exemples tirés de la dernière enquête de TNS Sofres sur les activités, comportements et attitudes des internautes en France et dans le monde, publiée le 12 octobre 2010, montrent à quel point les réseaux sociaux sont implantés dans le paysage de l’Internet. I. A. Si l’on procède à une recherche d'images sur Google avec l'expression: “cartographie des réseaux sociaux”, on découvre des représentations extrêmement nombreuses et variées. B. 1. 2.
How the Pros Measure Social Media Marketing Success From left: Sarah Hofstetter, David Rosenberg and Dexter Bustarde A lot of campaigns seem aimed at accruing Facebook Likes. But is that success? What's the point? Dexter Bustarde: Earning a Facebook Like, by hook or by crook, is a success, but it's a success at a very tactical level. David Rosenberg: The value of a Facebook Like is directly connected to the anticipated actions the brand hopes its newfound followers will take on behalf of the brand. Sarah Hofstetter: The question you’re posing is actually interesting in and of itself. What about Twitter? Rosenberg:There are different ways to measure success. With regard to total mentions and negative sentiment, it’s a larger discussion. Bustarde: If we frame Twitter (and social media in general) in the context of real world conversations, it becomes a little easier to understand how we should measure successes or failures. Are there certain approaches that seem to work better for different media? More Media Resources from Mashable:
Facebook Climbs Toward 700 Million Users Worldwide, With Steady Growth in the US Discrepancies among third party measurement services partially obscure what still looks like a steady growth rate for Facebook in the US and around the world. According to the data we track in our Inside Facebook Gold service, Facebook grew by 21.5 million new users in March to reach 661.5 million monthly active users worldwide. That’s somewhat more than what comScore shows, rather less than what Google’s Ad Planner tool seems to show. More data is available on the US. The other trend to note from below is that Twitter had a healthy March in the US and around the world. Compete Facebook gained nearly 7 million new users in the US in March, following an almost imperceptible increase in February. Facebook’s most direct current competitors in the US are Twitter and MySpace. ComScore The stats company also provides us with worldwide numbers.

2012 : tournant du journalisme web Fact-checking, datajournalism, montée en puissance des pure-players : les élections de 2012 devraient être celles du journalisme web, et d'une autre façon de traiter la présidentielle. 2012 ne sera pas une année comme les autres dans PDF (Paysage Digital Français). Présidentielles obligent, les desks numériques vont eux aussi chauffer et le journalisme en ligne tiendra là l’occasion de se faire enfin une vraie place auprès des aînés. Mais surtout, il pourrait bien changer, si ce n’est la face du monde, du moins la physionomie de cette grand messe électorale, mère de toutes les batailles politiques (et deux clichés en une phrase, deux !). Pour la première fois, il faudra compter avec les pure-players Comme les bons vins, les pure players se bonifient en prenant de l’âge. 2012 devrait donc être pour eux l’année de la maturité. Rue89, Médiapart, Slate et les autres sont désormais des médias à part entière, reconnus comme tels par le grand public. Fact-checking et droit de suite

Importance of Social Media & SEO for Public Relations Many would call the age we’re in, “Information Overload“. Consider: Facebook is approaching 700 million users and Google handles over 11 billion queries per month. World-wide there are over 5 billion mobile subscribers (9 out of 10 in the U.S.) and every two days there is more information created than between the dawn of civilization and 2003. The age of communications and digital relationships between brands, the media and consumers has changed faster and in ways few could have anticipated. With an ever increasing universe of data and ways to connect, PR and communications professionals are in a compelling position to master the new rules for consumer information discovery, consumption and sharing. A big part of how Public Relations pros can show more value for their efforts is to understand how the intersection of search and social media provides a powerful means to reach and engage media and consumers that inspires interaction, sharing and meaningful business outcomes.
You Are the Ad The Fischer King: David Fischer, Facebook’s vice president of advertising, wants to sell marketers a new, social kind of ad. Three years ago 1-800-Flowers, long a pioneer in Internet marketing, became the first national florist to create a fan page on Facebook. It used the free page to build relationships with customers and sell selected products, but it spent very little money advertising on the site. In January, however, the company began buying a different kind of Facebook advertisement. Thanks in part to those ads, the company now has more than 125,000 Facebook fans, more than twice as many as it had at the start of the year. So do dozens of other major brands, including Ford, Procter & Gamble, Starbucks, and Coca-Cola. It’s a stunning performance for a company many observers thought would never make much money, let alone become a major force in advertising. Conventional word of mouth reaches only a limited number of people. Shiny new object Privacy debacle

Rather than trying wrap up my mini-series on gamification, I am going to show you some exciting data from a little secret project (code name Project Atlas) that I’ve been working on. A few months ago, I was posed an interesting question: “Can we quantify the level engagement on a Facebook fan page that is a little deeper than just the number of fans or likes?” Social Networks:
