Oracle Inspired Social Media Infographic
Oracle is the first major vendor who seems to really understand social media marketing. You need to read several of their social media marketing white papers. 

Thankfully Oracle still only has half the story, but if they've gotten to the 50 yard-line how long until they have it all (social + community. Answer: not long. 

So time to get on board the social media bus was yesterday. The time to get on the social + community bus in now. Don't wait for Oracle's paper since we and those who matter you compete with will have moved on by then.

How The World Spends Its Time Online [INFOGRAPHIC]
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

I assume by "portals" they mean Yahoo, Wikipedia & dating sites such as eHarmony. Portals are part search, part social and part community. The power of community in the new ecommerce and content marketing can't be over estimated.

This is why our Triangle Startup Factory funded startup called Curagami (http://www.curagami.com) is so focused on conversations and the future value they bring.

Changing State of Content Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC]

Changing State of Content Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC] | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it
How do you market your business? Do you produce engaging content as part of your strategy? According to a recent study, 78% of businesses in 2013 (that responded) do engage in content marketing.

 

If you have a blog or produce content on social networks, videos or white papers then you are engaging in content marketing!

So what is the future of content marketing? How will things change?... Take a look.…

Content- to be or not to be.
Intriguing Networks's curator insight, December 18, 2013 3:20 AM

Thanks for this, most interested in the predictions about real people feature inncreasigly in content, it reads somewhat ironically doesn'tit with all the social interactions everyone is engaged upon?

 

I am pondering whether its more about authenticity that underpins the real people and events and havig something that actually connects emotionally as well as logically as more than a conversion click? 

 

In the UK there has been a real swing in mainstream xmas advertising led by an upmarket Department store chain called John Lewis, the others have tried to copy but they have not done it as well. The Ad hardly mentions the brand or the product and the feature is a costly animation. Interesting to see such emotive content and everyone is talking about it around the Xmas campaigns. Guess its a bit resonant with the Apple Think Different Ads. So how Companies trnslate that into streams of online content that fit the overall Brand Strategy is going to be interesting...

 

Theres a post about Facebook's Compassion and Content Strategy Teams and how they are researching and refining dealing with annoying content, may seem off-track but in terms of the future of Content Marketing understanding how not to endup with users tuning out may well be key? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/16/facebook-compassion_n_4441716.html strikes me that in business content we will face similar and significant challenges in the battle against the white noise even more so now Facebook say theya re carefully rolling out auto play video ads the bane of most users and the price they pay for a free platform...

 

Food for thought thanks again!

B2C Remains Slight Laggards On Social Media Marketing | Infographic

B2C Remains Slight Laggards On Social Media Marketing | Infographic | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

In the past few years, businesses have rushed to use social media. About 94 percent of all businesses now use some form of social media to promote their brand and engage with customers. To be successful businesses need to define their social media goals, know their online audience and have to realize that social media is a marathon not a sprint. 


Via Lauren Moss, Vincent Bastide, sophiedesc, Denis Liotta 
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Interesting infographic confirming a trend we see in content marketing too. B2C accounts are slight laggards to their B2B cousins on social media usage and pickup. I have three secret theories about social media:

Secret SMM Theory 1: Not about B2C Long-term
I think real profits will come from using social tools inside an enterprise.

Secret SMM Theory 2: When Doesn't Matter as Much as HOW
If your enterprise is a social media laggard you haven't lost that much yet, and if you jump in with C level support you may be able to leapfrog competitors already using social media marketing but only doing so on the margin.

Secret SMM Theory 3: Who You Know Is Important
Every social media pop we get starts with someone we know, support, follow and want to help. Who you know and who knows you on social media is very important to having the channel pay for the effort you put into it. We try to make that group as large as possible since what we send out and who we are on social media is what we get back.

This is just a data analysis how we use the social media. What we use, how we use it, when we use it, etc.

Kwang Hyun's curator insight, December 13, 2013 1:25 AM

Just a simple infographic about the social media analysis. How we use it and what do we use it. It is very important which tool is the best to use and who uses it the most. That's how we get general information all over the world.

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, January 8, 2014 8:41 AM

Great insights into the growth of social media in business with hints of how education could strengthen their programs to further engage parents, students, and the community at large.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

The interesting question to ask of this infographic is does the 89% social media kids every decline in penetration. Do the kids every slow down. Don't think so. Instead I'm betting the social media penetratoin increases every that "kids" generation ages to the point where 100% penetration is a reasonable expection.

Not sure I agree with Tim. Social is social. The fact that Pharma is all wound up on itself is more a reflection of pharma than the way the web works. Google makes no distinction betrween pharma content and any other type. Pharma is the one who binds itself up in knots, but universal content and social marketing axioms still apply.
Tim Mustill's comment, July 30, 2013 8:48 AM
I agree the axioms apply Martin but sadly, due to the self -inflicted knots you refer to and regulation there are some aspects of B2C that are just not practical for prescription medicines. Thankfully the barriers are slowly coming down with more big pharma embracing at least some elements of social media.

Love being able to compare key metrics across social nets.Wish they had stayed with the SAME metric for time on site throughout however. They switch from days to months and that makes Instragam appear as if it has more time on site than Facebook (it doesn't).

These figures displayed in the infographic help show just how powerful social media sites are. Unsurprisingly Facebook has one of the highest amount of users  which could suggest when it comes to an IMC program and using social media, Facebook should be strongly taken into consideration alongside the other platforms shown in this infographic.
