  • defining social networks in switzerland 2011 #1introduction There are a lot of studies about social media in Europe. Surprisingly Switzerland is seldom monitored or part of European studies. In 2009, Brian Solis observed that social networks users were mostly feminine. Being not sure that the american rule was the same elsewhere, I decided to use the same tools and data as Mr Solis and see for myself. Since then, lanscape has changed and social media has surged. About our main source: Data is from Doubleclick Ad Planner, March 2011, collected in late April 2011. We don’t take this data for granted. As you know, figures are only figures. Nonetheless we are interested in having the same sources on a large time span in order to see the evolution of media consumption. 4

With the unique visitors (users) metric, you can get an idea of the percent of your target audience you can reach.
  • defining social networks in switzerland 2011 #1Social networks’ evolution Country Unique Visitors | Globally all social networks are gaining users. Gaining 2 billions unique visitors (UV) in 6 months time, Facebook breaks the 4 billions users limit, with 4’600’000 unique visitors in March 2011. According to Bernet PR agency, Facebook users in Switzerland were 2.52 millions in March 2011. Hypothesis: Privacy issues make people delete cookies on their computer more often.

  • defining social networks in switzerland 2011 #1Social networks’ evolution Country Reach | Surprisingly Xing loses 0.1% reach even if it gains 40’000 Unique Visitors. This is probably due to social media fragmentation and users having to handle several networks who then must make a choice of networks to concentrate on.
