Last year I wrote an article about Social Media is NOT a FAD. It’s nice to see latest stats that validates what I wrote about a year ago! This updated video provides phenomenal, a certain WOW factor, and should get the Novices on board as quickly as possible; so here are the take away points to make you reconsider using Social Media (if you haven’t started, or need help using it right):

  • 0ver 50% of world’s population is under 30
  • 96% of millennials have joined a social network
  • FaceBook tops Google for weekly traffic in the US
  • Social Media as overtaken pornography at the #1 activity on the Web
  • 1 out of 8 couples married in the U.S. met via social media
  • 80% of companies use Social Media for recruitment
  • % of these using LinkedIn…95%
  • Fastest growing segment on FaceBook are 55-65 year old females

  1. Hey Ana,

    Those statistics are awesome and really shows how crucial and effective the use of social media really is in today’s business world!

    It certainly is no fad, and will more then likely continue to grow. So we have no choice to use it and grow with it. Not a hard decision really!

    Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed your blog and will be back!

    P.S. I have requested you on Facebook, would be great to connect with you!

  2. Hi Ana. This is an amazing video! I don't know which statistic blew me away the most. One line I really liked was, "Listening first. Selling Second." Comparing Dale Carnegie to Mad Men. This video was extremely well done with some amazing stats! Thanks for sharing it.

    I'm so glad we met on Facebook and that I stopped by your site. All my best!
