How Much Time Did You Spent On Social Media? – Infographic

Since 2006, the amount of time that the average person spent on social-networking sites has more than doubled, from 2.7 hours to 6.9 hours per month. More people are using social media, as well. While only 24% of Americans had a single social-media profile in 2008, 56% of Americans do now.

Between the different social media sites, Facebook is, unsurprisingly, king. The average Facebook user spends almost seven hours each month on the site — that’s well ahead of Tumblr and Pinterest, which tie for second place for most time spent. The average visitor to Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ spends less than half an hour on the site per month.

The below infographic, from Morrison Foerster’s Socially Aware blog, looks at online behavior of Americans, including second-screen habits, demographic patterns and annual changes.

Social Media Engagement Is A Real Metric – Infographic

Did you know that the average engagement rates for posts made on social media sites range from just 0.01 to 1 percent?

Independent studies I’ve undertaken have confirmed this. In my opinion, if your engagement rates are better than half a percent you’re WAY above average, and around five times as engaged as even the biggest players in the social space.

So is it all a waste of time?

Not at all. Those breadcrumbs add up. If even a small percentage of your audience interacts with each and every one of your posts, over time your impact will reach a very sizeable chunk of your network. The key part is you have to keep pushing, putting one tweet in front of another.

This infographic from Social Bakers takes a closer look at why engagement is a real metric in social media.

What’s Holding You Back From Taking Full Advantage Of The Cloud? – Infographic

Few words in tech have had more buzz over the past couple years than the omnipresent “cloud.” Cloud computing has ushered in a new era of technology, changed the way many companies do business and facilitated the age of mobile devices and social networking.

But not every organization has been so quick to flock to the cloud. A major outage to cloud computing servers used by Instagram this summer showed the potential pitfalls for businesses and brands.

The following infographic from CA Technologies’ CloudViews is based on a recent survey of IT leaders; it shows just how and why some companies have been slow to adapt.

Among its more interesting findings: While 80% of respondents say cloud computing drives innovation, more than 50% say they had no immediate plans to implement it. Why the disconnect? Job anxiety could be one reason. A shade under half of respondents say they believe companies will have to create entirely new IT jobs to accommodate a transition to the cloud, while 56% say cloud computing will require current employees to learn new skills.

For more, check out the full infographic below. Then, tell us in the comments: Do you think cloud computing is critical for all organizations today, or can some afford to sit out?

Self-Obsession, Narcissism and Social Networking – Infographic

With 90 percent of U.S. internet users having signed up for at least one social network, and one out of every eight people on the planet active on Facebook, social media has come a long, long way in a very brief period of time.

Indeed, one in every five minutes online is now spent using these social channels, a figure that has more than doubled since 2007. In each and every minute, we generate some 694,980 Facebook status updates and write 532,080 tweets. And 80 percent of those posts are about our favourite person – ourselves.

Yep, if there’s one thing social media has revealed very clearly it’s the level of narcissism and self-obsession that we almost all have. More than one third (35 percent) of users tag themselves in the 250 million photos that are uploaded daily to social platforms, and people with high levels of self-belief (or, conversely, very low self esteem) spend more than an hour every day on Facebook.

This infographic takes a closer look at the psychology of social networking.

The Rise Of Social Networking Ad Spending – Infographic

Social network ad spending is one again on the rise, argues a recent study by eMarketer, which predicts that US advertisers will spend nearly $1.7 billion on social sites this yea. This estimate is a noticeable increase from initial 2010 projection made by eMarketer, which forecasted $1.3B for this year, as well as a 20% increase from 2009 spending. Of this spending, Facebook is expected to receive about half of all social network ad spending, at least in the US, with Myspace losing ground to the now preeminent social networking site. These points, as well the study’s other most interesting facts and figures are featured in the graphic.
