Heard About the Social Media Revolution?
Is social media fashionable? Phase? Trend? No, no, no This is nothing but a revolution.
Social media is just a fundamental change in the way you communicate.
Did you know that 50% of the world’s population is under 30? And that 96% of people between the ages of 12 and 29 are members of the social network? It’s true!
Sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Linked In are important social media resources. Social networking sites are an interactive style of service that encourages the participation of its members. These participants talk about the products and services of countless companies every day and often give them a full assessment. Did you know that 78% of people trust a recommendation or review, compared to 14% of people who trust advertising? It’s definitely worth thinking about.
Social media is now the number 1 activity on the internet – yes, right, it’s more than porn! In fact, if Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest in the world! In support of this, it is known that 1.5 million pieces of content are posted on Facebook every day, and this volume is constantly growing. Think about the amount of content that is spreading like the plague on desktop computers and mobile phones of millions of people around the world.
Even Twitter had an impact. Celebrities like Ashton Kutcher have more followers than those in Norway, Ireland and Panama! The world is a popularity contest, and this contest is held online.
What about LinkedIn? More than 80% of employers now use LinkedIn as their primary source of employment. A large number of vacancies no longer appear in newspapers offering vacancies. In fact, now employers are looking for employees! If you’re unemployed and not registered with LinkedIn, you might want to sign up!
Sales of the world’s largest newspapers fell to 95%. Imagine that! People aren’t interested in news anymore? Of course I do. But now the news is not looking for people, and people!
Every day you go to the social network, where you read the latest news. It is instantly updated, narrated, liked or hated, transmitted, sent, printed, pronounced … It’s endless!
Still do not believe that social networks – this is the biggest revolution since the Internet? Well, your competitors do it!
