    It’s amazing how much information can be visually presented in such a small amount of space. They all look like an incredible amount of time went into the design

    I’m new to this world. Currently have profiles on Google+ and Tumblr. This info is great. It’s worrying that 75% of Google+ are nerds, and mainly male, but I guess that will change. blackrocket2000

    This just shows how quickly the world responds to advanced technology. Today, social media such as Facebook cater to people of all ages. One great example is my whole family. My parents are on Facebook, and so are my siblings, nieces and nephew. The sharing options within these social media also make everything convenient. With these features, there is no doubt that social hubs will top the rankings. And as for marketing, these social media sites (Facebook and Twitter) are very effective in building strong rapport with their markets. If you have all the gang on Facebook, it would be easier to share to them what’s new about their favorite brands.

    It’s not surprising that Facebook is the number one on the list, as per your post. Practically millions are addicted to it. I enjoyed reading this social media infographic of yours, Jeff. It’s so colorful that bloggers wouldn’t stop reading up to the last bit. There are a lot of good points here, an example of which is “Content and SEO.” I found it very useful and worth sharing.

    Hello Jeff,

    firstly thanks for a great column,it’s helping me make head or tail of our third world socio-economic situation here in South Africa but with our first world technology opportunities.

    Fantastic statistical data…wow,we seem to be more Google-centric as an online marketing medium daily….

    i head up a bunch of blokes who sell SEO and websites…in Cape Town,South Africa… where localized search is paramount to our digital marketing success, and the various social media platforms are really in their infancy in usage in our country.

    please keep the good column coming,it’s a great help

    regards

    Kev
