Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest – Which Social Network Won 2012?

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest – Which Social Network Won 2012? | Social Media and the economy | Scoop.it

2012 was a huge year for social media.

Facebook’s IPO and Instagram buyout dominated the headlines. Twitter is noweverywhere, and celebrated the tail-end of the year by reaching 200 million active users. LinkedIn has strengthened its position as the premier business social network while shaking off Facebook’s share price nightmare to continue to trade near its stock peak. And Pinterest had one of the best twelve months of any social network, ever.

 

But which of these social behemoths experienced a year that they’re never going to forget?

This infographic takes a closer look at the winners and losers of social media in 2012.

This infographic takes a look at some key social media statistics from around the globe.

 

Did you know that Japan is the only major country where Twitter is more popular than Facebook?

The Challenge of Getting Visibility on Facebook [infographic]

The Challenge of Getting Visibility on Facebook [infographic] | Social Media and the economy | Scoop.it

Many face the challenge of getting visibility on Facebook in the newsfeed, especially for business pages.  And, maybe that’s why I’m hearing more and more people talking about moving over to Google+.

It’s estimated that only about 10% of the people who follow your Facebook page, actually see your content. So you’re left to spend an unreal amount of time posting pictures, videos, polls and links in the hope that your followers will see and engage with your content. Or, you can advertise your content with promoted posts and offers in an attempt to get attention in the newsfeed.

 

If you’re committed to marketing your business on Facebook (and with over 1 billion users, who isn’t?), the infographic below may help you choose how to engage for the best return on your investment of time.
