Whilst many online services now have a social element, the five most important social media sites for businesses are:
You will be surprised (maybe not) to learn that there is actually quite a lot of social media sites out there but fortunately or unfortunately, of a handful of them count, here are the one that counts.
Facebook. Almost need no introduction, it is not just available in 70 languages with over 800 million members worldwide, it has more than 425 million monthly active users logging in with desktop computers, tables and mobile smartphones. Users spend an average of 6-7 hours on their Facebook page per month.
Twitter. This THE micro blogging site, users are allowed up to 140 character per tweet but they tend to post 60 character messages. Over 1 billion tweets sent churned out by Twitter users every week.
Youtube. This is the premier video sharing site online, with 8 million unique visitors each month and 100 million people taking a social action (likes, shares, comments etc) weekly.
Linkedin. This is the largest business focussed networking site with almost the entire UK business community signed up at 8 million UK users.
Google+. This is almost insignificant just yet but because its a Google property there is a lot of hurrah about it. It attracted 25 million members in its first month but its members tends to spend only 3 minutes a month online.
