You know what’s so funny to me? I can be engaged in a conversation with somebody who has no interest, whatsoever, in social media, and then the next time I run into them they’re setting up social media plans. The great thing about social media is that it really is self-taught, and unlike medicine or engineering, you can become a pro – or a ‘geek’ – in a matter of ‘literally’ only a few days.
They think they know everything, they’re now the ‘experts’, but let me ask you something…did you know this?
If Facebook was to be a country, it would be the third largest
With Facebook users reaching over 800 Million, Facebook would definitely be the 3rd largest country in the world (after China and India) according to population. Imagine having a ‘Facebook’ passport? You would be Facebookian?!
Every Facebookian has around 130 friends
Imagine having to get visas for all your friends to come visit. At least we know citizens of Facebook are a ‘like’able bunch.
Almost half of Twitter users either never or rarely check their accounts
But for those of us who do, it’s an amazing source of the latest information and a lot interesting facts, just like the ones listed here. There are links to cool YouTube videos and a sea of Infographics that make my rounds surfing Twitter, more fun than it should be for work.
YouTube is the 2nd most sought after searching engine
If Google is number one, then you would expect Yahoo or Bing to be second, but oh no, it’s not! YouTube is not just a network where you can watch interesting videos anymore; it has become a search engine where you can find any content that you’re looking for! I am personally one of the people who use YouTube as a search engine for research and I think it’s great!
More companies are using blogs to become a source of information
Just like us! We use blogs to get our messages across and so that you, the reader, get to know each and every one of us on a personal level, because we are absolutely crazy about Public Relations.
Twitter is to become an official broadcasting tool for News companies
Get your news on the spot and be the first one to know what is happening around the world. Twitter is definitely vital for making new companies superstars online. Can you even remember when was the last time you had to watch TV?
This is definitely not a comprehensive list, because A.) there is so much more you could analyse when it came to social media, and B.) by the time you read this, the figures could have already changed.
