Chart/table from: The Demographics of Instagram and Snapchat Users A majority 54% of US internet users aged 18 and up now post original photos and videos online, up from 46% last year, says the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project in a new report [pdf]. As part of its survey of the photo and video landscape, the researcher explores the use of Instagram and Snapchat, finding the former adopted by 18% of cell phone owners and the latter by 9%. Predictably, both are much more heavily used by youth. Among cell phone users, fully 26% of 18-29-year-olds report using Snapchat, a figure which plummets to 5% among 30-49-year-olds, 3% of the 50-64 crowd and 2% of those 65 and older. Interestingly, there’s no real gender disparity to speak of, nor is there any real gap in adoption between whites and African-Americans.

The World's 21 Most Important Social Media Sites and Apps in 2015 The concepts behind “social networking” aren’t anything new – ever since there have been humans, we have been looking for ways to connect, network, and promote with one another – but they’ve taken on an entirely new meaning (and momentum) in the digital age. Where we used to have handshakes, word-of-mouth referrals, and stamped letters, today’s relationships are often begun and developed on LinkedIn, Google +, and Facebook. That means savvy business owners have to know and use a variety of social platforms to stay relevant, not to mention take advantage of emerging opportunities. Below, you’ll find what I consider to be the 21 most important channels and tools you need to be aware of. 1. Twitter.

Infographic: Why Millennials Love Video Marketing If you’re not incorporating video into your content marketing strategy because you think it’s too expensive or ambitious, you’re missing a big chance to make an impression on millennial consumers. Recent research from Animoto shows that Generation Y is primed to spend more than $200 billion annually starting in 2017, and that video marketing plays a starring role when it comes to influencing what they buy. As Wired reports, YouTube reaches more millennials than “any single US cable network,” and according to Omid Kordestani, Google’s chief business officer, the average mobile YouTube session lasts over 40 minutes. During that time, young people are watching everything from cat videos to movie trailers to even branded content. Animoto found that 76 percent of millennials follow brands on YouTube, and a whopping 84 percent do so on Facebook. Why is this so important?

Young Users Prefer Snapchat To Twitter, Vine, Tumblr It’s tough to keep track of what young mobile users, the so-called millennials, currently prefer when it comes to apps. For example, earlier this year, it was reported that teens were bailing out on Facebook in large numbers. Just a few months ago, it turned out that same group reported using Facebook more than they did the previous year. A recent study by ComScore finds that the Facebook app is still plenty popular among millennials, who use it more than any other social app.

Top 15 Social Networking Sites You Should Be Using The world's most popular social networking sites certainly have changed over the years, and they'll undoubtedly continue to change as time moves forward. Old social networks will die, popular ones will stick around as they're forced to evolve, and brand new ones will appear. Justin Bieber's selfies used to bring Instagram to its knees For engineers working on social media, celebrities can be like natural disasters — swinging into town without warning and wrecking any vital infrastructure in sight. As Instagram revealed in a blog post yesterday, the picture sharing service was occasionally brought to its knees by posts from the likes of Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian. Fans would mob new pictures with likes, slowing down Instagram's servers in the process. In an interesting article at Wired, Instagram's co-founder Mike Krieger explains that Bieber in particular was the cause of so many of these "early scaling issues," that he ended up memorizing the singer's database ID (6860189) so he could recognize these bugs on sight.

Social Media Engagement Statistics We tend to talk about social networks in terms of size, because audience reach is one of social media’s biggest advantages. That’s why Facebook gets so much attention. With 1.2 billion monthly active users, it’s a beast. But as audiences adopt newer social networks, and people’s social activity becomes increasingly fragmented, other measures of social network activity become more important, especially for businesses trying to determine where to best allocate time and resources. How much time users spend on each social network and how engaged and interactive they are with content there are increasingly important ways of evaluating the sites. In a new report, BI Intelligence calculates an Engagement Index for top major social networks and compares their performance in terms of time-spend terms per-user, on desktop and mobile.

Social Media Demographics – Instagram, Tumblr, and Pinterest - Agile Impact Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest are very popular social networks. All 3 are image based, and while they are used by thousands of people every day, they can be ineffective if you’re not targeting the right demographic. Unlike Twitter and Facebook, demographics for these 3 sites are a bit more specific. This is Twitter's first television ad campaign This month Twitter unveiled Moments, the simplified way of browsing tweets that the company hopes will return it to rapid growth. It's an increasingly pressing concern: today the company announced it added just 4 million new monthly users in its most recent quarter, news that sent the stock tumbling. Before releasing Moments, Twitter said its release would be accompanied by a large-scale marketing campaign designed to reach people who had never used Twitter before, or who had tried and abandoned it years ago. Today, that marketing campaign arrives, led by a series of television advertisements that will debut tonight during the World Series. "Post-Season," which you can see above, is a 30-second spot aimed at sports enthusiasts.
