In Indonesia, the total internet user reach 23,% out of the total population and mostly are young people, 15-19 years old.Recently, we have seen the growth of Twitter users . This is an opportunity for librarians to  a good opportunity for librarian to reach more audience

Siri Anderson's curator insight, January 26, 11:20 AM

I find it interesting to note parallels and contrasts between use of social networks in f2f environments and online environments.  In some instances the online version works better for those who flounder in person. In some cases people who love the real world interactions disparage the online ones. But for most of us, there seems to be a parallel in our patterns and style it would seem. Where should children "learn" how to do this, or is that lesson beside the point at this time?

4 Big Social Media Lessons from Small Businesses [INFOGRAPHIC]

4 Big Social Media Lessons from Small Businesses [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Social Media is not just a method only being utilized by big brands anymore. Small businesses are starting to embrace and implement social techniques on a grander scale.


A 2012 SMB Group Study found that 20% of small businesses use social in an ad hoc, informal way- to generate leads and drive traffic to websites. The study also revealed that 24% of small businesses are using social in strategic and structured way, including data analysis of market trends and customer driven product ideas.


The businesses practicing strategic social media enjoyed a higher level of integration amongst their departments. The largest disparity between the two groups was uncovered in Customer Service. Only 8% of the companies with an informal social media environment had integrated into Customer Service, while an impressive 43% of the strategic social group integrated Customer Service.

That's quite a difference and food for though if your small business just kicking the tire with little or no social presence.

Facebook Tab Engagement Down 53% Since Timeline Launch

Facebook Tab Engagement Down 53% Since Timeline Launch | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Tabs on Facebook brand Pages are getting a lot less clicks since Timeline was introduced.

Facebook’s Timeline redesign profoundly altered the appearance and the function of brand Pages.

It’s also significantly affected the degree to which fans interact with tabs, which point you to different content at the top of the Page.

According to data provided to Mashable by PageLever, tab engagement has dropped off 53% since brand Pages began adopting Timeline. The findings were drawn from approximately 500 Pages with more than 10,000 fans apiece.

You can see tab engagement begin to decline on Feb. 28, the day brands were able to opt-in to Timeline. There’s a steeper leading into March 30, the day all Pages were forced to convert..

Do Employers “Like” Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Do Employers “Like” Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Did you know that 42 percent of employers say no to any use of social media in the workplace?

When you consider that two out of every five young workers rate access to social media at work above receiving a higher salary, this presents an obvious disconnect. And for many employers, an outright ban is easier to manage than educating themselves on the benefits of using these tools in the office – only a little more than half (53 percent) have any kind of formal social media policy in place.

An employer’s attitude towards channels such as Twitter and Facebook varies from industry to industry. Retail is the most progressive, with 65 percent of companies in this sector having social media policy in place, ahead of manufacturing (62 percent) and business support (59 percent).

This infographic from Payscale takes a closer look at what employers like – and don’t like – about social media.

I found many of the statistics in this article to be very intriguing.  For starters, I did not realize that Twitter's follower base has now grown to over half that of Facebook's.  Furthermore, I had no idea that users spend close to the same amount of time on each site, because to me, Twitter is more of a place to simply post things, while Facebook is more of a place to browse.  Next, I was not surprised to hear that about 80% of Pinterest users are women, however, I was surprised when it stated that about half of the total number of users have children!  Last but not least, I personally have not heard much chatter about Google+, so it was surprising to find out that its follower count increases by about 33% each year!  All in all, it was a very interesting article to read through!

About 45 percent of Americans say they can’t go more than a few hours without checking their phones.

Facebook now reaches 76 percent of the smartphone market, and it accounts for 23 percent of total time spent using apps each month.

The next five most used applications are Google apps, and they account for 10 percent of app usage time. One of the latest smartphone trends is that things are getting less touchy but more sensitive. Gestures and other non-tap inputs are on the rise. Casting a sidelong glance, for example, can pause a video.

The Mindset Divide – how people use different social networks is extremely interesting. In this infographic, we compare the use of personal and professional networks, and gain knowledge as to what some of the key differences are between how people engage, interact and use social media, whether for personal or business purposes.

A few key takeaways:


  • The emotions portrayed on personal networks include nostalgia, having fun and distraction – professional networks are concentrated on achievement, aspiration and success.
  • People spend time on personal networks, where-as they invest time on professional networks.
  • People use personal networks to socialise, whereas professional networks are used to search for career opportunities and stay in touch.
  • Users expect personal updates on personal networks, and more career-based and current affairs updates on professional networks.

In the history of technology, every new movement is accompanied by a swell of irascible naysayers, claiming the technology is subverting our traditional values. With social media, it’s no different. With reports of addiction and criticisms of its frivolous nature abounding, Facebook, Twitter and other services typically face some heat. A new infographic from school.com attempts to correct this thinking.

 

Here are a few impressive and enlightening statistics:

41% of the class of 2011 used social media in their job search.
4 out of 5 internet users visit social networks and blogs.
Twitter gets 170 million Tweets a day.
