Will you be ready?
I found this interesting infographic on Mashable about the state of Social Media.
Interesting that some of these new players will soon be the mainstream in SM.
Can’t wait to see how this plays out over the next few years.
I found this eMarketer post entitled “How Tweens, Teens and Parents Decide What to Buy – eMarketer.” and found it interesting that:
Teens more influential with parents and more reliant on web for information
… were much more price-sensitive, likely starting to realize that money may not in fact grow on trees. More importantly though, the internet was a much bigger factor in forming preferences. Two in five teens said online reviews influenced their computer product preferences, and 37% cited product websites.
Is the internet the next big teen “click”?
Interesting stats came out today on eMarketer regarding the number of Canadians now using social media.
Canada boasts some of the world’s highest internet penetration and social networking usage rates. Social network users view social media as their online home—a hub for communication, entertainment and information.
Does this mean more brand engagement, increased ROI and larger online marketing budgets? Gosh I hope so!
I’m going with a news media. How about you?
