Keep Your Business Social

November 15 2010

socialmediaToday we want to take a minute to remind all of us why we use social media to propel our business.  This short video, created by Socialnomics, gives an amazing glimpse into the world of social media and the statistics necessary to keep us all in social hyperdrive.

Here are a few of the compelling facts about social media:

When looking at the years advertising platforms have taken to reach 50 million users:

  • Radio - 38 Years
  • TV - 13 Years
  • Internet - 4 Years
  • iPod - 3 Years
  • Facebook added 100 million users in less than 9 months

A quarter of search results for the World’s Top 20 largest brands are links to user-generated content. Seventy-eight percent of consumers trust peer recommendations, while only 18% trust traditional TV advertisements.

If Facebook were a country it would be the world’s 4th largest between the United States and Indonesia. Ashton Kutcher and Ellen Degeneres (combined) have more Twitter followers than the combined population of Ireland, Norway, or Panama.

Finally, people care more about how their social network ranks products and services than how Google ranks them.
