- 10 Sobering Twitter Statistics
Twitter-bird I don’t have to tell you that everyone is talking Twitter.
If you haven’t heard about it from your friends, co-workers, or
favorite social media “guru,” then you’ve certainly heard about it via
CNN, Oprah, The Today Show, USA Today, and countless other media
outlets that are constantly talking about it lately. There are a lot of

share 10 sobering Twitter statistics found after scouring nearly a
dozen comScore, eMarketer, Nielsen, HubSpot, Pear Analytics, and Alexa
- Is social media worth your marketing dollars?
As social media has reached mainstream consciousness this year,
businesses have been inundated with the message that they must
immediately get on board or risk doom and calamity. The hyperbole (and

- Best Customers: Those Who Steal Their Content
Historically, an easy way to stoke the ire of a major media executive
was to start talking about the surge in peer-to-peer file distribution.
Now, we do lots of research at Frank N. Magid Associates to take the
pulse of various media channels for customers, and recently a P2P
company, Vuze, hired us to find out how its users’ media habits compare
with those of the average internet user. When we did, we found that
those media execs may not have cause for all the quaking. (While we

defines a strategic technology as one with the potential for
significant impact on the enterprise in the next three years. Factors
that denote significant impact include a high potential for disruption

programs and initiatives. They may be strategic because they have
matured to broad market use or because they enable strategic advantage
from early adoption.

Twitter has become a polarising service. I’m one of the millions of
people who find value in Twitter, mostly because I’ve built a network
of new media and digital journalism professionals, many of whom I am
lucky enough to call friends. As I’ve said before, my network is my
filter, and my Twitter network provides me with an incredibly valuable
filtered feed of content that I have to know as a social media
journalist. It’s better than any single site. I generate an RSS feed
just of the links that friends post in Twitter to keep on top it.
