Hello there, I’m Jim Glover, That Branding Guy, for Once a Day Marketing. It’s Digital
Friday and before we begin today I would like I want to encourage you again to give me more
“likes,” to “tweet” me more often, to share my blog and to give me more comments
because I take all that information and I keep trying to enhance what I deliver to you
as my valuable customer.
Today is Digital Friday as I said and I wanted to bring to you today some really eye-opening
facts and figures about social media.
I arbitrarily went out and identified 10 different facts and figures that I thought were kind
of interesting related to social media. And whatever number I give you in a moment I know
that when this video blog is done those numbers will already be obsolete but let’s just
start. There were 1 trillion YouTube views in 2011.
At present, there are 800 million Facebook users
The #1 most-watched video on Youtube is called Charlie Bit Me and it has 436 million views
There are 290 million Tweets on Twitter each day
There are now150 million LinkedIn users There are 50 million Tumblr posts per day
There are 37 million fans on Coca-Cola’s Facebook page
There are 23 million follower for Lady Gaga on Twitter
* There are 200,000 text messages per second * There are 100,000 new Word Press pages each
The point I’m making here is that social media is here to stay and theses numbers are
only going to increase. They’re just going to get bigger and bigger. In fact a year from
now when we do this again it will probably be mind-boggling how vast the difference really
is. Strategically what you have to do is you have to figure out a way through your social
media campaign to cut through the clutter and make sure you find the followers you’re
I think you’re well armed now to go out this weekend and share all your knowledge
about social media to your friends. If you need branding support, please feel free to
contact me to discuss an online or face to face service engagement. That information
can be found at the end of this video. I am Jim Glover, That Branding Guy, for Once a
Day Marketing and we will see you next time.
