Social Media Transparency [Infographic]

Social Media Transparency [Infographic] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |
janlgordon's insight:

This article and infographic is from Social Media Explorer - Social Media is forcing companies to engage in a whole new way with their customers.

Here are some hightlights:

**Mass adoption of social tools and technology have created an information democracy.

**Stakeholders are beginning to expect open access to relevant content and the ability to participate in dialogue that will help them satisfy their information needs.

**All this for the purpose of building trust in a product, service or organization.

**Trust is the foundation of all relationships and relationships are what fuel business growth and long term success.

**Transparency across digital channels is a great way for organizations to start connecting with their audiences and slowly building trust.

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

What Happens Every 60 Seconds In Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |
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: — 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.
