Did you know that since Twitter first opened its doors back in 2006, more than 163 billion tweets have been sent on the micro-blogging social network?

What if we told you that 25 percent of Facebook users don’t bother with any kind of privacysettings?

Or that Google+’s +1 button is used 5 million times per day?

 

The past year was a wonderful world of social media. Infographics also were a huge hit in 2012. This infographic from the Huffington Post and content below offer more details.

A Printable Guide to Social Media [#Infographic]

A Printable Guide to Social Media [#Infographic] | Social Media Advocacy | Scoop.it

Ask anyone to name the most popular social media tools used by students, and it’s a safe bet everybody could name the top two: Facebook and Twitter.

But those are far from the only online applications making inroads. As administrators warm to engaging students through social media, the list of potential resources at their disposal grows longer by the day.

 

Facebook and Twitter are the obvious choices. But there are other options- Tumblr, YouTube and Google+, to name three.

Of course, if naming the latest social media tools seems tough, learning how to use them all is harder still. In an attempt to shorten the learning curve, Flowtown and Column Five published this Social Media Cheat Sheet for your reference...

There’s nothing new under the sun?

There’s an assumption that, just because social media keeps evolving and we start to use new tools, that ‘social media’ is a new phenomenon. Nothing could be further from the truth.

 

This informative infographic tells the story of how people have been social on the internet, from the birth of email and Usenet to up-to-date tools like Pinterest and Google+.

I really enjoyed this article due to the simplicity of the inforgraphic showcasing the information in a colourful and engaging way. As there are several types of social media such as facebook, twitter and tumblr (blogs) having media stratergy for each one is important. All of them have different communiction features and different target audiences. Kamal has chosen well and agreeing with emma that this really links well with the week 7 lecture topic.
Christine IMC's curator insight, September 26, 2013 10:15 PM

This is a good article as it uses infographics which makes it easier to understand and take in the idea of developing and implementing a media strategy and in this case for social media. The first 4 steps are the basics to developing a strategy and then it expands on it with not great detail but just the quick basic information one needs to know. Although one thing it doesn't mention though is analyzing a market or finding a target market which I beleive helps within the process of developing a strategy, knowing what potential customers to target or what market or segment.

Selina EverHungry Nihalani's curator insight, October 6, 2013 6:23 PM

In today’s market, social media has become an essential factor of building a business strategy. It is very important that we approach and engage customers through social sites. In the beginning of this article, it shows that a successful social media strategy depends on establishing a sound business goal. Goals must be defined clearly to utilize the appropriate social media in achieving the business goal. After the goals are set, it is also important to define the metrics and tactics. This is because these will measure whether the social media efforts are creating consideration and conversions with the target audience. Through this process, companies can evaluate and measure success and failures, and prepare for a better business strategy to succeed in social media.

Social Media at Work [Infographic] | Social Media Advocacy | Scoop.it

It costs an astonishing $650 billion per year to the economy when you while away at social media sites during your working hours!

How many times have you found yourself diving into your Twitter or Facebook while you should in fact be working?Accessing social media accounts while at work can be a serious drain on your productivity...

 

Per the infographic,social media at work costs an astonishing $650 billion per year. And it has been equally bad for students and workers- many more have been found to be spending 2x more time on Facebook than on exercising. For University students, nearly 3 hours are spent on social media sites and only 2 hours on studies, resulting in lesser grades.

As for workers, 1 in 10 are interrupted every 10.5 minutes by either a tweet, a Facebook update or even a simple instant message and it takes them 23 minutes to go back to work.

So, wonder if all this social media updates are worth it when it is causing such a big drain on the economy? Check out the infographic for the answers...

Different Social Networks: personal vs. professional use [INFOGRAPHIC]

Different Social Networks: personal vs. professional use [INFOGRAPHIC] | Social Media Advocacy | Scoop.it

The Mindset Divide – how people use different social networks is extremely interesting. In this infographic, we compare the use of personal and professional networks, and gain knowledge as to what some of the key differences are between how people engage, interact and use social media, whether for personal or business purposes.

A few key takeaways:

 

The emotions portrayed on personal networks include nostalgia, having fun and distraction – professional networks are concentrated on achievement, aspiration and success. People spend time on personal networks, where-as they invest time on professional networks. People use personal networks to socialise, whereas professional networks are used to search for career opportunities and stay in touch. Users expect personal updates on personal networks, and more career-based and current affairs updates on professional networks.

 

View the complete infographic for a better understanding of how personal and professional social networks compare and tips on how to optimize your social profiles to maximize results...
