10 Shocking #SocialMedia Stats (#Infographic)

This morning I came across a fantastic infographic outlining 10 social media stats from CashSherpa. The infographic outlines 10 astonishing social media facts and reminds us that everything we thought we knew about social media is wrong.

Too lazy to visualize and appreciate? Below are the stats:

  1. The fastest growing demographic on twitter is the 55-64 year age bracketTweet This
  2. YouTube reaches more U.S. adults aged 18-34 than any cable network– Tweet This
  3. 189 million of Facebook’s users are mobile only –Tweet This
  4. Social Media has overtaken porn as the #1 activity on the web– Tweet This
  5. Every second two new members join LinkedIn – Tweet This 
  6. 25% of smartphone owners ages 18-44 say they can’t recall the last time their smartphone wasn’t next to them  Tweet This 
  7. 93% of marketers use social media for business Tweet This 
  8. Even though 62% of marketers blog or plan to blog in 2013, only 9% of U.S. marketing companies employ a full-time blogger Tweet This

I have a passion for digital marketing and the overall communications field because it is an effective tool for connecting people. I'm a self-proclaimed "foodie" and obsessed with great wine and red velvet cupcakes. I'm an avid sports fan (go yankees!) and a total shopping addict and my biggest pride and joy are my two sons Lucas and Reid. I love to travel the world, and reflect and share insights with you on this blog, hope you enjoy!
