5 must-see social media infographics

5 must-see social media infographics | Social media platforms | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words, but what happens when you combine the two? Though the concept of data visualization is nothing new, the prominence of blogs and image-led social media platforms like Pinterest has truly proven that sometimes the designer’s stylus is mightier than the pen.

As we grow increasingly accustomed to bright, colourful and bite-sized visualisations of what once was presented in dense statistics and complex data, finding the best, most-useful infographics has become something of a task.

We thought we'd save you some time by presenting you with a short list of our favourite social media infographics. Enjoy!

Alex Delfosse's curator insight, May 12, 2015 11:58 PM

I had a hard time finding something I could wholeheartedly classify as useful bait however this seems to fit the bill. It gives numerous rules of social media that can be applied on a day to day basis. This ones a bit jam packed and I can't read a thing on the bottom so that's a negative. But the variety makes up for it.

How Are Moms Using Social Media (And Why Does This Matter To Marketers)? | AllTwitter

How Are Moms Using Social Media (And Why Does This Matter To Marketers)? | AllTwitter | Social media platforms | Scoop.it

Did you know that a recent study showed that almost half (44 percent) of moms have gone on to make a purchase after a friend posted a recommendation or liked a product on a social media site?

 

We’ve been here before, of course (many times), but it bears repeating – moms and social media make a great mix, and if these socially savvy ladies are a demographic fit for your business then you should absolutely be engaging with them – frequently – within your marketing campaigns.

 

You need more proof? Moms love to share information about products. Your products. More than nine in ten (92 percent) pass along information about deals or finds to others, and 78 percent of moms follow brands on social media to get coupons and discounts (compared to 55 percent of other folk).

 

They’re mobile, too – 89 percent of moms use their smartphone to check social media on the move....

Social Search: The Third Dimension of Social Media Marketing

Social Search: The Third Dimension of Social Media Marketing | Social media platforms | Scoop.it

As the name suggests, social search combines the depth of social and the breath of search. It is a type of web search that takes into account the ‘social passport’ of the person initiating the query.

 

In essence, the social passport refers to the global mapping of users and how they are related online.

 

Social search takes into account varying sources of metadata, such as tags, social ranking, news, images, videos, knowledge sharing and other web pages. 


Social media marketers now have a huge opportunity to impact SEO, improve search rankings, and increase revenue generated through both social and organic search.

Setting up a new business on social networks takes much more than filling in a form. Lots of the most important aspects are easily overlooked when creating a new business profile or page. Maintaining consistency across the web with your brand’s voice and visual elements is critical for brand recognition. You’ll also need to pay attention to who will run your accounts, and how they’ll do so.
