Having tracked data for the last seven years in the automotive marketing arena, I can tell you a few things that I’ve learned that have brought us to where the content marketing world is today. It’s all about process and answering the questions that consumers are asking and it’s something that, as I’ve said time and time again in the past, needs to be viewed holistically.
Twitter is changing the way we do social… or at least reiterating what others have already shown us.
There is very little doubt in anyone’s mind that social media is huge and growing. No infographic is necessary to try to make that point any more clear. What does make for interesting infographic madness is the breakdown by countries and networks that this infographic from Mashable depicts.
Facebook tried it. Twitter explored it. Google+ considered it. Now Pinterest is finding that social media can be a venue for direct increase in sales, particularly for retail stores. Is this a good thing? Is “social shopping” outside of the Groupon and LivingSocial niche something that exemplifies the future of social media, or is it just a glitch in the matrix?
Social media has always been a hot topic for us, but the latest emerging craze has been around since the early days and is manifesting itself as one of the fastest-growing segments of Web 2.0. “Social Discovery” sites like Tagged and Pinterest are expanding like wildfire as the need to network with new people is becoming “a thing”.
No other social network in history has hit 100 million users nearly as quickly as Google+ did, It has the backing, support, and namesake of one of the most powerful companies in the world, but it started half a decade later than its competitors. Does it have enough juice to compete?
Most conferences and events have parties associated with them, but in the world of interactive media, nothing compares from a party perspective than the crazy things that happen every year in Austin, Texas, as SXSW takes over everything.
In case you weren’t 100% completely aware that social media is a grouping of storms that rage with massive levels of activity every moment of every day, here’s an infographic to reiterate it.
Twitter lets people connect directly with some of their favorite musicians, actors, and athletes. People in the public eye no doubt have a lot of followers on Twitter - and it turns out those followers have a lot of questions. We took a look at the top 100 people who get asked the most questions on Twitter to find out whose followers are the most curious. (Source - Via)
