I've started listing many of them in my "sparkles for the week" recap...that is when I actually put them up. But, yesterday I found one that I just had to share!
25 Insane Social Media Facts - no they are not the weird kind. They are the kind that pull you in and make you say "huh"!
Just a couple that struck my fancy:
- 93% of marketers are using social media. However, only 9% of marketing companies have full-time bloggers. - a frustrating point for all those chicks gathered this past weekend at #AWBU
- The fastest growing demographic on Twitter is the 55-64 year age bracket. That’s a growth of 79% since 2012. For Facebook and Google Plus, the 45 to 54 year age bracket at 46% and 56% respectively are the fastest growing demographics. - but don't tell me dad, I still tell he he doesn't need a Twitter account...but I would like to brainstorm a handle for him.
- Despite privacy concerns, only 25% of Facebook users utilize privacy settings.
- 5 million photos are uploaded daily on Instagram
I also found this interesting this morning as I perused Twitter in the early hours of my day - Go Mark Cuban! The Big Mistake You Dont Know You're Making on Social Media
So much to think about every day.
