10 Social Media Metrics

The proof is in the numbers.  I came across this blog article written by Jeff Esposito, “96 Percent of Americans Use Facebook — and Other Social Media Stats for the C-Suite” in Social Media Today.  Here is what he sited regarding Social Media:

  1. 82% of 18-29 year olds utilize a form of social networking (Pew)
  2. 48%  of consumers combine social media and search engines in their buying process (GroupM)

  9. 41% of the companies report that there is no staff dedicated to social media (Useful Social Media)
  10. 10.5% of CMOs say social marketing efforts are effectively integrated into their overall marketing strategy (MarketingProfs)
