What Happens Every 60 Seconds In Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

What Happens Every 60 Seconds In Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest – What Happens Every 60 Seconds In Social Media?


Some very interesting information:


**Did you know that every 60 seconds Twitter sees (on average) 175,000 new tweets?


**Over that same time period, Pinterest receives 1,090 visitors


**LinkedIn absorbs 7,610 searches


**Flickr users upload 3,125 photos?


 **If you think those numbers are impressive, how about this: each and every minute of the day, 700,000 messages are sent on Facebook


** two million videos are watched on YouTube.


What caught my attention - sometimes the comments are just as interesting if not more than the actual content itself:

 

****Sarah Upton says: February 28, 2012 at 11:23 pm - This is a comment from one of their readers:


Misleading and inaccurate.


You cite an article on Foursquare from AUGUST, then round DOWN. They get over five million check ins per day: http://mashable.com/2012/02/28/foursquare-hq-tour/ — so double what you’ve presented here.


Jumpstart was very apologetic and said they're trying to be as accurate as possible. Point being, these infographics are great to look at and give us an approximation of what's actually happening, trying to keep the facts straight, not an easy task for sure:-)


This data is courtesy of a new infographic from marketing consultancy firm Social Jumpstart, which takes a closer look and tries to be as accurate as possible at what happens in social media every 60 seconds.

Intro:


These days they aren’t only one of the most widely used gadgets in the world, they’re mini computers we can fit in our pockets and do just about anything on.

**Figures show that, on average, the highest percentage of mobile social media users are between the ages of 25 and 35, and a bigger percentage of women are online more often than men.

What Your Content Says About You In Social Media

What Your Content Says About You In Social Media | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it




An interesting article from Doug Rice for famousbloggers.net.


"If we define art as self-expression, posting is the new painting."  He cautions that the world


**will see who you are through your posts so you should make sure your personality is refelcted through your online persona.


This is what caught my attention:


'You are what you tweet


The messages you send out about yourself–be they Tweets, Facebook status updates, Foursquare check-ins, Flickr photos, YouTube videos, etc.–are an expression of who you are..... You are your content. What are you creating?


I link; therefore, I am


Social media isn’t just about you and your content, though. It’s about the external content that you identify with. It’s about the “Retweets”, the “Shares” and the “Stumbles.”


It’s about what you link. This, too, is an expression of who you are. When you high-five other content, you are signaling that you share the same values. You are what you share.


**What are you passing along?"

Curating The "Instant Deal" to create millions of brand ambassadors

Curating The "Instant Deal" to create millions of brand ambassadors | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Great article by Douglas Crets, blogger for Fast Company - Excellent observations and great information!!

This stood out for me:

"This is key - Those brands--really, all brands--will have to move towards curation as a method for engaging with consumers, finding the millions of Lee Iacocca's out there who are not the real CEOs, but can help manage the brand with their insights from the consumer's point of view".

A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic]

A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This article was written by Chris Velazco for Tech Crunch


The infographic from ad exchange, Mobclix in this piece aims to highlight what goes down in the mobile world in 60 seconds.



****Before you read the excerpt, I thought it was particularly interesting to post one of the comments made by a reader who saw the infograph.  He wasn't the only one that said this was an unfinished report. I think these people are missing the point here.


**This is a mere glimpse, the tip of the iceberg, to give us an idea of the magnitude of this exploding industry, it's not the be all end all report. I'm very careful what I post, I don't want to add to the noise, so look at the infographic with this in mind and imagine how it would look if you added what one of the readers said below.


One reader's comment:


Ulrich Weihler:  "Nice idea, but major things for spending mobile time are missing, surfing content, using communities, using apps, internet usage, downloading music and videos, listening to music or watching videos, sms and actually phone connecions to talk, etc.. that's why the chart looks a bit strange."


Excerpt:


"In case you were curious, in the time it took me to write out that first sentence, over 23,000 iOS apps were downloaded from Apple’s App Store.


** Mobclix used data directly from app publishers, industry sources, and a little old-fashioned arithmetic to get the 60 second stats you see below.


Of course, considering Mobclix’s background, there had to be some ad-related factoids in the mix too.


Mobile advertisers will be glad to know (if they didn’t already) that some 4,111 ads are tapped each minute, though it almost makes you wonder how many ads

were ignored in the same 60 second timeframe.

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
We asked Mark Cuban, Dennis Crowley, Gina Bianchini, and more than a dozen others. Here's what they said.


This article by Dan Frommer and Jen Ortiz for Business Insider links to a slideshow with quotes from major Social Media company CEOs and co-founders, intellectuals and a Curated Twitter persona, among others about their takes on the future of Social Media. 


Here's just one of them, from Dae Mellencamp, CEO of Vimeo:


**** "The future of social media is the loss of the distinction between media and social interaction online. Mass media and social media will be seamlessly integrated across devices and platforms to offer relevant, dynamic, personalized experiences for people anywhere.


**Discoverability and the import of editorial curation will not be lost, but rather inherently incorporated into the environments for richer and more customized experiences."

Foursquare Gets Into The Crowdsourced Curation Game With Tip Lists

Foursquare Gets Into The Crowdsourced Curation Game With Tip Lists | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Foursquare encourages you to be the "go to person" in your local area about where to go through Tip Lists. Very clever....

 

Intro:

 

"Foursquare has launched its Tip Lists features today, attempting to capitalize on people's unending desire to create lists about locations, like Top Five Coffee Shops in SF, etc etc.

 

Foursquare has launched its Tip Lists features today, attempting to capitalize on people’s unending desire to create lists about locations, like Top Five Coffee Shops in SF, etc etc. Up until now your Foursquare Tips have sort of roamed free on the app, without rhyme or reason or real incentive to add more. Today the company is trying to improve on the Tips experience and get users to fancy themselves local experts. After all, you must know something about some place in the city you live in right?
