Consumer Attitudes to Data Privacy [INFOGRAPHIC]

Consumer Attitudes to Data Privacy [INFOGRAPHIC] | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it
According to statistics from a DMA survey of 1,020 adults, 1 in 3 consumers now regard their personal information as a tradable commodity. These consumers are prepared to share their details for marketing purposes, as long as they trust the brand in question, while others would ‘sell’ their data for a discount.

The following infographic from DMA shows the 3 types of consumers and in what circumstances and reasons will they share their personal information to brands.

The Three Types of Consumers:

1. Data Pragmatists (53%)
People who are willing to exchange reasonable amounts of data with brands for free servicdes or better benefits

2. Unconcerned (31%)
Consumers who don’t really care who they share their information to and what will it be used for.

3. Data Fundamentalists (16%)
Generally opposed to sharing their information unless they have a compelling reason to.

Search and Social: How The Two Will Soon Become One

Search and Social: How The Two Will Soon Become One | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

From the original article: "Bing and Google each recently unveiled its own new search interface, designed to better intuit your intent and help you get to the one best answer more efficiently. And they’ve meet it ever more clear that search is heading straight for a merger with social.

 

The changes are smart. Google’s knowledge graph is useful – when I search for certain things, I just want a cheat sheet. What is Faraday’s Law, again? What exactly is a geoduck?

 

But Bing’s new feature – “people who might know” – is even smarter. This is the first major attempt at a merger of search and social – unless you count Search Plus Your World, which I don’t – and this is undeniably the way we’re headed.

 

The fundamental insight is that when I ask a question, there are lots of ways to help me find the best answer.

 

If you don’t have it, point me in the direction of someone who does".

 

Rightful. 7/10

Relationships and Recommendations Soon More Valuable Than SEO

Relationships and Recommendations Soon More Valuable Than SEO | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

Jan Gordon: "Here's what caught my attention:

 

 Axel: As long as people search for a product not knowing their name or a technology, not knowing its source or a solution not knowing who is a potential supplier SEO is an important part of the marketing mix...

 

However, this is slowly and steadily changing.

 

Today 60 – 80% of the so called educated purchase decision is based on recommendations by trusted individuals or groups that have no or no significant interest in the sale but helpful and experienced people using or knowing the product or service in need.

 

And the number of recommendation based purchases is steadily growing. I'm sure it will hit the 80 – 90% range in the next 5 to 10 years.

 

Now – what does that mean to SEO?

 

Why should a business invest in search engine optimization if most of the purchase decisions are based on recommendations?

 

Wouldn't it be smarter to invest into the "recommendation chain" instead in SEO?

 

Wouldn't it be more effective and successful to make sure people recommend a product than hoping to come up higher in the list of search results?"

You made my day! I always love reading and curating your articles this was definitely no exception. Thank you for always raising the bar and making us pay attention to what's really important.
janlgordon's comment, June 17, 2012 3:53 PM
Thank you for this Robin, it's greatly appreciated. It's exciting to watch and be a part of all this change, I'm sure you agree:-)
Robin Good's comment, June 18, 2012 2:28 AM
Yes Jan... I don't know exactly what you are referring to, but this the only sure thing we have today: this is time of fast and continuous change... so I am certainly enjoying the ride.

On another note: I would humbly suggest to consider posting shorter stories, especially when you are also pointing to the original, as what I am looking for from you, is not a rehash of what's in the article - outside of a 1-3 para excerpt - but the reasons why you are recommending it. You are already doing both, but it is overwhelming for me. Too much stuff, and I haven't even seen the original yet.

I would also gently mute some of the visual noise you create by heavily formatting with asterisks, bolds and big font sizes. In my case that doesn't help much. It actually hinders my ability to rapidly scan and check whether you have something good there.

I suggest to limit greatly the formatting options you use and to highlight only what is really relevant, because when too many things are highlighted, bolded, asterisked, none has any more an effect on me. It's like a crowd screaming: who do you help? :-)
