Social Media Broken Down

In this age of digital disruption there is no denying that working online is where it’s at. Here’s some interesting (and sometimes alarming) social media statistics that may interest you, or completely freak you out.

“We don’t have a choice on whether we do social media, the choice is how well we do it.”

~ Eric Qualman

Did You Know??

  • Facebook now has the world’s largest population!

social media 1

  • Over 50% of the world’s population is under 30 years of age
  • 53% of millennials would rather lose their sense of smell than their technology
  • Mobile & social aren’t emerging, they’re MERGING
  • Even relationships are becoming more digital – 1 in 5 couples meet online (I’d hazard a guess that it’s even more as I met my current boyfriend online and have a few close friends that have done the same) & 1 in 5 divorces involve social media
  • Each day 20% of the terms typed into Google have never been searched before
  • “Selfie” is now a word in Webster
  • Every second 2 new members join Linkedin (that’s like the entire enrolment of the Ivy League joining Linkedin every day)
  • The Linkedin age limit has been lowered to 13 (not really sure why)
  • Grandparents are the fastest growing demographic on Twitter
  • 53% of people on Twitter recommend products in their tweets
  • 93% of shoppers’ buying decisions are influenced by social media
  • 90% of consumers trust peer recommendations and only 14% trust advertisements
  • The 0:06 vine is the new 0:30 commercial

social media 2

  • The 4 P’s of Marketing (Product, Place, Price, Promotion) are no more
  • These have been replaced by the 4 C’s of Digital (Creating, Curating, Connecting, Culture)
  • You can now wear technology which means everything can be shared to the world

And the one I find most alarming of all……

social media 3
