Facebook vs Twitter vs Pinterest – 2013 Statistics [Infographic]

Facebook vs Twitter vs Pinterest – 2013 Statistics [Infographic] | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

The Social Media Statistics for 2013 across Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest provide us with an interesting opportunity to review where we may want to spend our social media dollars and time in the coming year.

 

2013 is shaping up to be a changing year in the online social media landscape. The Pinterest user base and relationship with online spend is likely to grow, Facebook is likely to roll out more products changing the landscape time and time again, and the Twitter user base is likely to grow, however Twitter needs to counter the issue of visual content quite quickly to compete in the e-commerce space. When considering where to spend your social dollars, be aware of your target audience, and wherever possible take the time to improve the visual nature of your content and you should begin to see some great results...

Gaia, Woobox works only on your FB Pages, NOT on your FB profile. That's the reason why you can't get it to do what you want. It doesn't do that. :-)

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Dave Copeland for Readwriteweb. There have been many articles about Pinterest but if you do nothing else, read the white paper by Engauge and report they're referring to. It is absolutely the best one I've seen to date. (more details below)

 

The most important thing in this piece is the report, here's what you'll see:

 

A new Engauge white paper breaks down:

 

**the make-up of the average Pinterest user 

 

**shows that the end result of less reading is more of a focus on content curation than creation.

 

**The timing of that trend, combined with a stunning design when Internet users are focusing more on visual than text, has allowed Pinterest to explode in popularity.

 

This is what caught my attention - a quote from a user:

 

"When I'm looking for new trends on specific topics like fashion or birthday party themes, I now search Pinterest first -- not Google." - Karah Street

The Bro’s Guide To Pinterest

The Bro’s Guide To Pinterest | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Pinterest is the social media plateform where, not to be or not to be on the right way can make the difference for those who want to use this platform for their business. This guide should support you in your approach. [note mg]

 

Just because Pinterest is a female-dominated network doesn't mean men don't fit in. In this post, learn how to leverage this network as a male user or male-focused brand.

 

Pinterest’s popularity has exploded in the past few months. Their traffic and user base has grown exponentially, bringing it to the attention of marketers around the world.


One of the most unique factors of Pinterest is the fact that its user demographic is made up mostly of women. This key factor has forced many male-oriented brands to rethink their marketing strategy if they want to leverage this social network.

FIPT or Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter have put up some amazing numbers this last year proving SMM is here to stay and here for real. Debate the ROI at your company's marketing peril.

Time to get into the social media deep in is upon Internet marketers. As I stated in Social Media Marketing The Most Important ROI, the key isn't what SMM does to the bottom line thought as this infographic proves those kinds of returns are coming.

Social media marketing's most powerful return is how it changes US as the wall between US and THEM slips silently into the past.

kendall irvine's comment, September 25, 2013 8:20 PM
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.

The penetration of Pinterest in social media proves two things:

there is space for unique social media initiatives; there is a world beyond Twitter and Facebook – the current social media favorites.


If you thought handling Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg and LinkedIn were enough, add Pinterest to your list now.

 

What is Pinterest?

 

Launched in 2009, Pinterest picks up speed in the last months of 2011 as an innovative visual social network, with eye-catching images pinned on online boards that build your collection of visual things online.

The Rapid Rise of Pinterest's Blockbuster User Engagement [CHART]

The Rapid Rise of Pinterest's Blockbuster User Engagement [CHART] | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

This piece (user chart included) was written and posted by Matt Silverman, contributing editor for Mashable, .

 

My commentary (I'm personally experiencing amazing results after being on Pinterest for about 4 months).

 

****Even with all the hooplah surrounding Pinterest, it's important to remember, that Pinterest is only a side dish in your business, paying attention to your main course and how Pinterest supports that is what is key. See article here: http://bit.ly/yXET4P by John Jantsch.

 

Having said that...........

 

This user engagement chart is astounding, as you see the rise in Pinterest users in a very short time.

 

**In my opinion, Pinterest gives you the opportunity to showcase your work without a lot of text anything that gives us a breather in that way is a blessing.

 

**Images speak a thousand words if you know how to use them properly.

 

**Showing other sides of you that are consistent with your brand message gives people a chance to see you beyond the text you post on other sites.

 

**Pinboards like favorite books, homes and spaces, etc. give people points of entry, a connection with you because they identify and like the same things, a great way to start a conversation, have them look to see what you do and who you are.

 

**Everything we do online tells a story about us, it's our digital identity, Pinterest is a place where you can tell your story in a whole different way.

 

**Pinterest is also a place where you can relax, fantasize about the wardrope you'd love to have, or the amazing car or cars you want to have. Let's face it, we're all plugged in 24/7, this is a place where you can lighten up and/or market your business all on the same site.

 

**Pinterest is not only gaining a ton of users, but those users are spending an average of 89 minutes on the site

 

** Facebook is still leading by 405 minutes along with Tumblr also 89 minutes but it's obvious Pinterest is moving up quickly.

 

**It's important to know how to use Pinterest to showcase what you do in a subtle but engaging way

 

Feel free to visit my topic "Pinterest Watch"  a collection of articles from branding, case studies, metrics all in one place.

Pin Your Scoop: Create Visual Collections From Your Best Scoops

Pin Your Scoop: Create Visual Collections From Your Best Scoops | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to let your scoop.it content to reach more people and to get discovered by those who are not yet aware of you, the new Pinterest integration in Scoop.it should certainly be a welcome addition.

 

With this new addition, not only you can share your curated stories inside your Scoop.it newsradar with your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Wordpress friends, but you can also "pin" selected ones to create alternative "collections" on Pinterest.

One potentially good approach is the one of leveraging Pinterest to do what Scoop.it is not (yet) so good at. For example, after you have been curating a newsradar for a while, you can easily create "greatest hits" collections out of the best ones, or sub-thematic digests on specific topics, and Pinterest is a perfect tool to do that.

In essence you can "re-curate" your own curated news, in alternative ways which take advantage of Pinterest strength in building "visual collections" rather than news channels.

Will Pinterest Lead The Way & Transform the Web in 2012?

Will Pinterest Lead The Way & Transform the Web in 2012? | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

I selected this post written by Elad Gil because not only was it interesting and timely, but the comments from his readers were equally as valuable. So many different social curation platforms emerging, Pinterest is one to watch.......

 

Excerpt:

 

Social Content Curation As The Next Big Thing

 

The most interesting wave hitting the social web in 2012 is social curation. This was kicked off in 2011 as Pinterest's growth was noticed by Silicon Valley and a number of companies quickly followed suit -

 

**Snip.It launched as a social information curation platform, Quora adopted boards for a similar purpose, and Fab.com launched a structured social commerce feed.

 

There's so much information in this post, here's the takeaway. I would love to hear your comments about this next wave......

 

Takeaway:

 

2012 Will Be The Year of Curated Sets


**2012 will likely see an acceleration of structured, push button, social curation across the web. Why? Because most users don't want to take much effort to produce content, and consuming content in a structured manner (especially photos) is also much faster.

 

**Just as the first wave of social media has transformed the consumption of information, this next wave of social curation will fundamentally change how users find and interact with content over time.
