So you have a Facebook page…now what? Are you LinkedIn but still out of the loop? Is your YouTube out of air? Are you suffering from Twitter fatigue? In short: are you making money with your social media applications? Would you like to learn how? According to Nielsen “three of the world’s most popular brands online are social-media related (Facebook, YouTube and Wikipedia) and the world now spends over 110 billion minutes on social networks and blog sites. This equates to 22 percent of all time online or one in every four and half minutes. For the first time ever, social network or blog sites are visited by three quarters of global consumers who go online, after the numbers of people visiting these sites increased by 24% over last year. The average visitor spends 66% more time on these sites than a year ago, almost 6 hours in April 2010 versus 3 hours, 31 minutes last year.”
That’s quite a market for your business, product, service or nonprofit. Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans is now on Facebook. Globally, Facebook has 500 million members. If it were its own country, its population would only exceeded by India and China. Speaking of China -- now the world’s second largest economy – how does social networking work in the country that is home to one quarter of the earth’s population?
The answers to these and other questions can be found at the next session of David Perry’s popular New Media Made Easy - - $ocial Networks? How to Make Money with Social Media.
