Thanksgiving Socia Media Facts – Infographic

So long, spuds. Catch ya later, yams. Go forth and multiply, green beans. The most popular side dish at Thanksgiving, as rated by the number of mentions on Twitter and Facebook in recent months, is a turkey’s best friend: stuffing.

Out of more than 150,000 tweets and updates about “Thanksgiving dinner” collected by the company Viralheat, the starchy mixture was mentioned in more than 38,000. That’s a full 15,000 mentions ahead of its nearest rival, mashed potatoes. Yams get the bronze medal.

Green beans are an also-ran in mentions, but they can at least boast of their popularity on Pinterest — as the most-pinned side dish this year. On the dessert front, pumpkin pie is the winner, edging out apple pie — but not by much.

Meanwhile, the New York Times, NPR and Men’s Health were the most influential accounts to tweet about holiday food. Check out the details below, and let us know in the comments whether social media has influenced your Thanksgiving meal.

Twitter Marketing: What Results Should You Expect – Infographic

Twitter is a great way to build and engage an audience with short, timely, relevant messages, but if you’re trying to drive traffic to your website, what results should you expect?

We wanted to know, so we analysed tens of thousands of tweets sent through Sign-Up.to’s Twitter marketing tools in the first seven months of 2012 to find out the answer. Then we compiled the results into this handy infographic.

In it we look at average click through rates (CTR) from tweets and how this varies by number of followers, day of the week and time of tweet.

As you’ll see, there were some interesting results. We found the average click through rate for a tweet is 1.64% (just over half the rate of email, which averages 2.95%), and that this declines rapidly as your number of followers increases. We also found that clicks tend to increase later in the day, peaking at around 6pm.

Popstars: Who Is Following Whom On Twitter – And Who Is @ExtremeCatNip – Infographic

Justin Bieber is the pop artist who follows the most of his music contemporaries on Twitter, from Katy Perry and Taylor Swift to Kayne West, while Lady Gaga is a lot more selective with whom she follows on the site.

Ticketing site ClickItTicket.com has compiled data on which celebrities are following whom on Twitter and how they are using the site. The company lists the following six pop stars as the most popular on the platform: Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Britney Spears and Taylor Swift.

Lady Gaga doesn’t follow any of the top pop stars using Twitter, but everyone else follows at least two of them. Bieber not only follows the most — all five, and he’s the only one that follows his own record label — he also tweets more than the others. Bieber sends about 14 tweets each day to his fan base.

But Bieber hasn’t been on the site the longest. Lady Gaga has been active on the site longer than other artists, for a total of 1,630 days or about 4.5 years.

Some musicians are more leaders than followers on Twitter. Eminem, for example, has more than 12 million followers and isn’t following anyone. Meanwhile, West has nearly 9 million followers and is only following one person: Kim Kardashian, his girlfriend.

The infographic also points out some interesting information about whom these musicians follow. Lady Gaga may not follow Bieber and Spears, but all three follow one mysterious account: @ExtremeCatNip, which only has 65 followers.

For a deeper look at who is following whom on Twitter, check out the infographic.

Euro 2012: Who Won On Twitter – Infographic

Euro 2012 is history, with Spain taking home its third straight major international tournament.

Europe’s once-every-four-years spectacle was full of memorable moments on the pitch — brilliance from Cristiano Ronaldo, the stellar play of Italian wildcard Mario Balotelli and the passion of his Azzurri teammate Gianluigi Buffon, just to scratch the surface.

But who won Euro 2012 in the Twittersphere?

Spain totaled 873,000 mentions during the tournament, England totaled 849,000 and Italy was third at 716,000. Portugal star Ronaldo was tops among players, with nearly 270,000 mentions despite his squad not reaching the final game. Balotelli and Spain’s Fernando Torres — two players who faced off in the final — rounded out the individual top three with 213,000 and 188,000 mentions respectively.

Players and teams aside, it’s no surprise that goals and referees were the most tweet-generating subjects at Euro 2012. But the tournament’s most retweeted post didn’t come from a soccer player or media personality at all — rather it came from NBA star LeBron James, whose congratulatory tweet after Spain’s big win drew more than 9,000 retweets.

Overall, the tournament generated nearly 12 million total tweets — including a new tweets-per-second record for sports in the the final match between Spain and Italy.

Sports website TheScore used data from the social analytics company Sysomos to pull all these stats and more and produce the infographic below. Check it out for the full picture on how Euro 2012 played out on Twitter.

The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity wrapped up in the south of France on Saturday, but people continue talking about the event’s hot awards and high-profile guests.

Cruising into the top spot was Selena Gomez, who attended the conference to speak on a panel called “Millennials and the Future of Creativity.” According to the infographic, created by SapientNitro, the actress and singer tweeted about her participation, earning over 2,600 additional tweets and conversations on Twitter alone. The seminar itself topped 3,863 mentions all together.

Other notable speakers included singer-songwriter Deborah “Debbie” Harry, who spoke about the entrepreneurial spirit. “Does anyone ever start at their best?” she asked. “That would be so depressing, to start at the top and work your way down.”
