Research Shows Divergence in Social Media Uptake

Research Shows  Divergence in Social Media Uptake | Communication design | Scoop.it

Research shows the use of social media at Fortune 500 has stalled, or perhaps even re-trenched.


This article for 'Grow' presents Data  provided by the Center for Marketing Research at the University of Massachusetts.


What particularly caught my attention is:


***The almost universal uptake of Social Media by Universities and Charities.


***The divergence in uptake between Fortune 500 companies - the "titans" of American Business, and the INC 500, comprising America's fastest growing companies


A perhaps even more interesting divergence among the Fortune 500 where:


***The top 100 companies are the most active blogging companies.


***Only 17% of the next 400 companies blog.


It would be easy to conject as to the reasons for these stark differences, but I choose to let the numbers speak for themselves.  I will, however, be on the lookout for further pieces and more in-depth Data on this intriguing puzzle.

antonios bouris's insight:

Google's marketing, the communication design, the huge delays, the elitism in distribution and the high price are the responsible factors for all dust and mud around Glass.

Google is an expert when it comes to shutting down excellent ideas like Google Health,  Wave, Picnick, Knol, Code search,  Reader, Latitude, Talk, iGoogle, Notifier, Scemer just to mention a few.  So what's next? Glass maybe?
