www.jeffbullas.com/2012/04/23/48-significant-social-media-facts-figures-and-statistics-plus-7-infographics/ I came across some interesting statistics that has me quite concerned about the dental hygiene levels on this planet. Apparently there are 600 million more people that own a mobile phone compared to those who own a toothbrush. Some research reveals that there are 4.8 billion mobile users but only 4.2 billion people with a toothbrush. Does that mean that every mobile should be sold with a free toothbrush or should you need to produce your toothbrush before you are given possession of your new mobile phone to ensure that future personal close encounters are engaging and pleasant? Another interpretation of those statistic is that toothbrushes are too expensive. The Importance of Statistics Statistics are used to make important decisions and social media statistics, facts and figures are often used to justify new media marketing strategies and tactics to the CEO. Here are the latest facts, figures and statistics for seven major social networks that marketers need to take notice of. Facebook Twitter
Follow my leader: Retailers race to catch digital rivals 30 August 2012Last updated at 19:00 ET Viewpoint by Karmesh Vaswani Infosys Shoppers are increasingly letting the barrier between digital and bricks and mortar blur when it comes to retailers Walk down any High Street and you can see the biggest forces revolutionising shopping habits as the meteoric rise of Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook (or the Gang of Four as they are known) have fast become a normal part of our day-to-day lives. We shop on phones, compare on Google and ask our Twitter friends what they think. These and other innovative companies have changed our expectations about shopping and are forcing regular High Street retailers to up their game in response. The future offers shoppers the best of both worlds, with smart retailers adopting the digital innovations from these companies to create an even more compelling experience for customers. Infosys's Karmesh Vaswani: "We're standing on the edge of a new digital era" Take the example of someone who loves film. Online v High Street
2012 Social Network Analysis Report – Demographic – Geographic and Search Data Revealed 2011 marked the second year in which many social networks started to wane as social network saturation kicked in. The questions remains, how many social networks can you actively stay up to date on? As Facebook became the mainstay for many users in late 2009 and into 2010 and continuing into 2011, we see the continued fallout in interest for many other social networks. There are still a few social networks that are growing, year over year, however, such as Tumblr, Reddit and Twitter, to name a few. We added coverage of the following social networks this year (in no particular order): Google PlusPinterestDribbbleGoodreadsQuoraSlideshareSquidoo 2012 Social Network Analysis Methodology: Reporting is the same as last year - most sites' search stats were pulled back by querying just their name. All data continues to come from Google because they have one of the largest data sets on the web. The Search Traffic reports are based on proportionate search traffic for the given query. Badoo.com
Mr. Sexy Back tries to bring Myspace back NEW YORK (AP) — "Who am I to say I want you back? When you were never mine to give away." Those are the opening lines of a song that accompanies a "New Myspace" promotional video. The once-mighty social network is trying to stage yet another comeback with the help of Justin Timberlake. The new site, for which people can request an invitation, looks a bit like an entertainment-focused version of Pinterest, with a dash of Twitter and Facebook thrown in. But Myspace has tried redesigns before, to no avail. "If you break my heart a second time, I might never be the same," continues the song, "Heartbeat," by the group JJAMZ. From the sound if it, Myspace wants to win the hearts and minds of tech-savvy hipsters. The company's new promotional video offers a 2-minute and 18-second peek into a slick, image-heavy site. The new Myspace will let users connect to the site with their Twitter or Facebook accounts, a sign that it won't be competing with those sites as a social networking service.
What Is The Kryptonite Of The Millennial Generation? No generation is just a single dimension or can be defined by a single thing. However, there are certain trends with every generation, and our newest to tackle the business world is no different. I am in constant awe and amazement at the levels of intelligence and poise possessed of so many millennials entering the workforce today. Having attended conferences where I have listened to them present, seen them in action at companies across the country, or worked alongside of them on projects, there is a level of sophistication that did not present itself for years with my generation. (Although, to be fair, that was because we all sat around in coffee houses, draped in way too much flannel, debating Nirvana lyrics, and deciding whether Ticketmaster was evil or just greedy.) But, in spite of growing up in the midst of a great technological leap forward, millennials have a fatal flaw – a weakness in your armor – and that is a lack of perspective.

Top 100 Facebook Pages In August 2012 | Scopegater By Brian Last time we looked at the Top 50 Facebook Pages In June 2012 but for today, I thought of expanding the scope and instead of another Top 50 Facebook Pages For August, we shall instead be looking at the Top 100 Facebook Pages In August 2012. The below list is however just an estimate given the nature of people’s behavior in Facebook i.e. they like new pages and unlike others every other second. There are some who have graced the Top 50 Facebook Page list for the first time e.g. (Currently, there are 1,513,080 Facebook users in the Kenya, which makes it #70 in the global ranking of all Facebook statistics by Country. There are 64% male users and 36% female users in Kenya with the largest age group being 18–24 with a total of 590 101 users, followed by the users in the age bracket of 25–34) The PTA column refers to the number of People Talking About it which is visible from the Page itself (Just below the name of the page, next to the likes).

The Hunt for Social Business Value inShare102 Guest post by Ashley Furness of Software Advice When Microsoft announced plans to buy enterprise social network Yammer recently I was a little stunned. The reported $1.2-billion acquisition price tag seemed like a lot for simply replicating social networking functions in the business environment. Would companies really achieve ROI? Still, Chatter Product Marketing Director Dave King told me in a recent conversation that “social is more than a trend, it is a revolution that is changing the way we work and collaborate.” Boost Employee Recognition and Engagement Altimeter Group founder Charlene Li made a presentation recently (Discussed here “Enterprise Social Networking is More Than Facebook Behind a Firewall“) that highlights how enterprise social platforms engage employees. For example, in the four years since Deloitte AU implemented Yammer, the turnover rate for active users has fallen to two percent annually–about 10 times less than for employees who don’t use it.
