Social Media at Work [Infographic]

Social Media at Work [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

It costs an astonishing $650 billion per year to the economy when you while away at social media sites during your working hours!

How many times have you found yourself diving into your Twitter or Facebook while you should in fact be working?Accessing social media accounts while at work can be a serious drain on your productivity...


Per the infographic,social media at work costs an astonishing $650 billion per year. And it has been equally bad for students and workers- many more have been found to be spending 2x more time on Facebook than on exercising. For University students, nearly 3 hours are spent on social media sites and only 2 hours on studies, resulting in lesser grades.

As for workers, 1 in 10 are interrupted every 10.5 minutes by either a tweet, a Facebook update or even a simple instant message and it takes them 23 minutes to go back to work.

So, wonder if all this social media updates are worth it when it is causing such a big drain on the economy? Check out the infographic for the answers...

The Social Media Monster [Infographic]

The Social Media Monster [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
It's no surprise that social media consumes a good amount of our time, and it's perfectly fine when you have nothing else to do, but when you are at work its a big no-no.

This infographic illustrates just how distracting social media can be in the workforce. According to a study conducted by Microsoft, social media causes an average of four interruptions per hour. Also, over 40% of disrupted tasks were not immediately resumed.

So how much are all these interruptions going to cost the economy? A whopping $650 billion dollars a year is lost due to interruptions (aka Facebook).

It all makes sense though, with over 1 billion Facebook posts per day, 62 billion emails sent every day, and 400 million tweets per day, it's understandable why people are gettin distracted. Many businesses are taking matters into their own hands and blocking social sites on their networks so employees cannot view them. However, if you just unplug every once in a while and wait until after work to check your Facebook or Twitter, your productivity will increase and your boss will be happier...

The Challenge of Getting Visibility on Facebook [infographic]

The Challenge of Getting Visibility on Facebook [infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Many face the challenge of getting visibility on Facebook in the newsfeed, especially for business pages.  And, maybe that’s why I’m hearing more and more people talking about moving over to Google+.

It’s estimated that only about 10% of the people who follow your Facebook page, actually see your content. So you’re left to spend an unreal amount of time posting pictures, videos, polls and links in the hope that your followers will see and engage with your content. Or, you can advertise your content with promoted posts and offers in an attempt to get attention in the newsfeed.


If you’re committed to marketing your business on Facebook (and with over 1 billion users, who isn’t?), the infographic below may help you choose how to engage for the best return on your investment of time.

What The Social Media Ecosystem Looks Like Right Now [Infographics]

What The Social Media Ecosystem Looks Like Right Now [Infographics] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

The social media landscape is anything but constant — it seems like the ecosystem is changing daily...
This infographic shows what the social media landscape looks like right now. Unlike the famously viral LUMAscape depiction that crowds every single social media company into one infographic, this is a simpler visual of how things work "from customer service and R&D to HR and marketing."

The key question that brands have when planning and then analyzing social media campaigns is how to measure the impact that every dollar spent on paid social media has on the value their owned and earned social media.


An additional infographic analyzes the interaction of these three forms of social media, explaining:

"The high level analysis for media effectiveness takes all of earned and owned divided by paid. Earned is all the impressions generated divided by average CPM, owned includes all channels, and paid is the overall media spend. The higher the ratio, the more earned amplification is generated from paid."
