Which Social Network Does Your Target Customer Use?

Which Social Network Does Your Target Customer Use? | Data on our Social World | Scoop.it
A new report sheds light on the age and gender distribution of 24 popular social networks, among them Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit and Tumblr.
Marcia Conner's insight:

More than half (55 percent) of Twitter users are older than age 35, and that Twitter average age of 37 (technically 37.3)? It’s a few months older than the average of all users (36.9) across the 24 networks Pingdom studied.

The youngest users—over half of which were under the age of 24—can be found on user-made art network DeviantART. LinkedIn had the highest percentage of users over age 55, and by far the highest average age: 44.2 years. Second to LinkedIn (at least age-wise) was Yelp, with an average user aged 42.2.

The Measurable Value Of Social Business (Infographic)

The Measurable Value Of Social Business (Infographic) | Data on our Social World | Scoop.it
What good are these technologies? According to a recent infographic from Mzinga, Teradata Aster, and The Center for Complexity in Business, most companies (64%) are primarily using these platforms for Marketing/Customer Experience.

 

The rest are tinkering with customer support, employee collaboration and sales:
64% for marketing initiatives
47% for customer support
39% for employee collaboration
27% for sales


No real surprise there, but the growing number of platform users and uses does suggest that social business initiatives are at long last becoming more important to business in general. Hallelujah, guys! We’re getting closer and closer to the idea that it’s not social business, it’s just business.

According to a survey released in June by Virgin HealthMiles, 56% of employees agree that peers provide motivation and helpful support with health improvement efforts. And 55% agree that sharing information about progress with peers helps them remain accountable for their success. During June's 4th annual National Employee Wellness Month, more than 65,000 employees representing leading U.S. companies brought those data points to life. These employees motivated each other and spurred one another on during the annual three-week physical activity-based challenge. Together, these employees took more than 12 billion total steps -- the equivalent of 6 million miles or 750 times the distance traveled by the 2012 Summer Olympics torch on its way to London.
