There are frequently public conversations that you would like to grab hold of and take into whisper mode with a friend and say, hey, this thing has happened. Look what these people are talking about. What do you think about this, with a friend or more than one friend. So being able to move fluidly between that public conversation and the private conversation is something we’ll make simpler.

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

 

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...

Why Twitter makes you feel good

Why Twitter makes you feel good | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Researchers at Harvard took the time to dig into our brains to figure out why 40 percent of our daily speech is centered around telling others what we think and feel. And the reason? Because it feels so good!

 

In a series of experiments, they compared the feeling one gets from eating food, getting money or having sex with the feeling one gets from disclosing information about oneself. The study revealed that the feeling one gets from all of the above is strikingly similar, they all give the same feel-good feeling. This explains why we tweet and update about ourselves so often. It seems that self-disclosure activates the mesolimbic dopaminergic system of the brain, which is associated with the same rewarding feeling as getting money or sex.

 

===> So Tweeps, now you know what to do when you have the blues: start tweeting and updating your status! <===

15 Twitter Facts and Figures for 2014 You Need to Know - Jeffbullas's Blog | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

The microblogging giant has come a long way since co-founder Jack Dorsey's first tweet. Here are some Twitter facts and figures worth checking out.

 

Twitter went public in November 2013. The much ballyhooed IPO was a big hit as TWTR opened at $26.00 and closed at $44.90 in its first day of trading. Today Twitter trades at $44.60 despite a net loss of $34 million in its most recent quarterly report.

 

While Twitter has become an incredible brand, it must find a way to show profitability in the future. We don’t want the little blue bird to fly away....
