Social Network Demographics In 2012

Social Network Demographics In 2012 | CrowdSourcing InfoGraphics | Scoop.it
Do you know how old the average Twitter or Facebook user is? Do you know what share of Reddit’s users are women? We could go on and on; when it comes to social network demographics, the questions are endless.

Pingdom shows here the age and gender distribution on 24 of today’s most popular social networks and online communities.

 

Social media is most definitely not just for the young:

55% of Twitter users are 35 or older. 63% of Pinterest users are 35 or older. 65% of Facebook users are 35 or older. 79% of LinkedIn users are 35 or older.

 

Some sites have a considerable bias toward younger users:

58% of Reddit users are under 35. 60% of Github users are under 35. 63% of Hi5 users are under 35. 69% of Hacker News users are under 35. 69% of deviantART users are under 35. 83% of Orkut users are under 35.

 

Average user age per site

Based on the sites in this survey, the estimated age of the average social media user is just under 37 years old. Here are some other observations:

The oldest users. LinkedIn has the oldest user base, with the average user being 44.2 years old. The average Facebook user is 40.5 years old. The average Twitter user is 37.3 years old. The age trend for Facebook and Twitter.  Twitter’s user base is getting younger, while Facebook’s is getting older.

 

What about gender?

Based on the United States demographics data (from Ad Planner) there is a clear gender imbalance on many of these sites. Some are much more male dominated, and vice versa. However, when you look at all the data together, it becomes clear that women rule social media. More than two thirds of the sites in this survey have more female than male users.

 

Other observations:

17 out of 24 sites (71%) have more female than male users. The average gender distribution is 48.75% male, 51.25% female. Most male-dominated site? Slashdot (87% males) is the standout, followed by Hacker News (77% males) and Stack Overflow (76% males). In general, the more tech-focused sites in this survey have more male users than female. Most female-dominated site? Pinterest (79% females) is in a league of its own, followed by Goodreads (70% females) and Blogger (66% females). Facebook and Twitter have the same gender distribution: 40% male, 60% female.

As you can see, the only sites in this survey with more male than female users are Quora, Reddit, Orkut, Github, Stack Overflow, Hacker News and Slashdot.

Takeaway:  There’s a place for everyone in today’s social media landscape. These sites have users that span the entire age spectrum, and there really are no limits to what you can achieve online, regardless of age or gender.

 

A note on the source data: All the demographics data in this survey is for the United States, but the patterns shown here should translate roughly to other countries as well. That said, there are regional differences, so keep that in mind if you’re applying this to other parts of the world.

When you download an app from the Android Google Play store, it will prompt you to accept the permissions it requests from your device. Most people do not pay attention and simply download the app. This is a bad idea. Left unchecked, app permissions can open your device to possible data theft, spam and malware.

The Power Of First Impression

The Power Of First Impression | CrowdSourcing InfoGraphics | Scoop.it

Have you ever wondered which elements of your website make the biggest impression?

 

This Infographic by Webs is based on a recent Eye-Tracking Study conducted by the Missouri University of Science and Technology:

For their research, Sheng and Dahal enlisted 20 Missouri S&T students to view screenshots, or static images, of the main websites from 25 law schools in the U.S. 

The participants spent an average of 20 seconds on each website.

 

The website sections that drew the most interest from viewers were as follows:

  • The institution's logo. Users spent about 6.48 seconds focused on this area before moving on.
  • The main navigation menu. Almost as popular as the logo, subjects spent an average of 6.44 seconds viewing the menu.
  • The search box, where users focused for just over 6 seconds.
  • Social networking links to sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Users spent about 5.95 seconds viewing these areas.
  • The site's main image, where users' eyes fixated for an average of 5.94 seconds.
  • The site's written content, where users spent about 5.59 seconds.
  • The bottom of a website, where users spent about 5.25 seconds.

 

Although use of color was not part of the eye-tracking study, participants indicated that it did influence their impressions of websites.

 

"Participants recommended the main color and background color be pleasant and attractive, and the contrast of the text color should be such that it is easier to read," Dahal wrote in her master's thesis, titled "Eyes Don't Lie: Understanding Users' First Impressions on Website Design Using Eye Tracking."

 

The use of images was also an important factor in web design, the subjects of the study said.

 "You must choose your main picture very carefully," Sheng says.

"An inappropriate image can lead to an unfavorable response from viewers."

Colors and images utilized play a vital role when it comes to creating favorable responses

Online Reputation Management Infographic

Online Reputation Management Infographic | CrowdSourcing InfoGraphics | Scoop.it

With the advent of social media and online review sites, it is easier than ever for consumers to give praise for their favorite places, products and/or services. It’s hard to imagine that just a few short years ago, word-of-mouth referrals occurred at a much slower pace whereas nowadays, they can occur rapidly. And this is good… at least when consumers are giving out praises.

Looking at the data, Bit Rebels 500 most recent articles, those with an Infographic and Traditional

 

Posts, it's interesting to see the distribution of shares across the major social networks.

Twitter is obviously the "darling' for posts with an Infographic with StumbleUpon running closely behind.

 

Who would have thought LinkedIn would yield so many shares, almost on a par with Facebook?

 

I'm not sure how Bit Rebels could ascertain whether the pageviews were solely based on the Post with an Infographic, perhaps it had also something to do with title and subject matter.

Is online piracy really killing the entertainment industry? #Infographic | memeburn | CrowdSourcing InfoGraphics | Scoop.it

Wait! Don’t download that torrent. Stay away from that website filled with pirated MP3s. Stop watching your favourite series on suspiciously free TV sites instead of paying for a subscription. You’re killing the entertainment industry, making artists and actors poorer and, well, committing a crime.


But are you really? Okay sure, so piracy is definitely illegal, but how much economic harm are you actually doing to entire industries by downloading and streaming copyrighted files instead of visiting the cinema or purchasing an MP3 or (gasp!) CD?

Starting your own business can be difficult, but it can also be highly rewarding.

For many people, it’s a dream that is never realised, but for a lucky few, it’s a reality.

 

The freedom of being your own boss can be one of the best things about being self-employed.

For many, the thought of managing your own workload without being under the watchful eye of an employer is very appealing.

 

Your own business can also give you the opportunity to purse something that you’re really passionate about. It’s often said that if you can find something which you enjoy doing, you never have to work a day in your life. Turning a hobby or an interest into a profitable business can give you immense satisfaction.

If you run your business well, the rewards can be huge.

 

If you’ve considered going it alone and pursuing your dreams, take a look at this Infographic from the team at XLN BusinessServices,  which is full of useful information about how to approach starting your own business.
