So, What Is Twitter?

The Numbers Will Shock You...

They will shock you if you are not connected and in the loop on marketingMan Surprised using social media/new media.  I was reading a piece by Shea Bennett about the 2011 growth of various social/new media usage.  Some amazing stats:

  • 800+ million users on Facebook at the end of 2011;
  • 200 million users of Facebook added in 2011;
  • 350 million log into Facebook with their phones (this is HUGE!);
  • 225 million Twitter accounts;
  • 100 million active Twitter accounts in 2011;
  • 250 million Tweets per day (October 2011);
  • 550 million Websites as of December 2011;
  • 300 million Websites were ADDED in 2011;
  • 1 trillion Video playbacks on YouTube;
  • 40 years since the first email was sent in 1971

Two big take-a-ways from this:

Is your website mobile ready?- If you don't think that is important look again at the number of folks using phones to check Facebook. 

Can you be found?- Finding your product/service website is critical for success for any size business.  Can people find you when they look?  If you're not employing some sound SEO and social/new media angles...we doubt it.
