Social in 2012 at a Glance: Reach and Network Size

  1. 1. Social in 2012 at a Glance Reach and Network Size Social media allows companies to communicate directly with individuals that have “opted in” to their brand messaging, to the tune of an average 1.83 million network connections in 2012. With changes to the algorithms used to determine how often content is seen, and the introduction of new options to promote content, reach was a hot topic in 2012. One thing remained certai: content that compelled individuals to like, share, or retweet it was seen by more people. Total Network Size Companies still see most of their connections (about 75%!) on Facebook. These numbers make sense when you consider the size of each network overall- Facebook topped 1 Billion members in October and Twitter has an estimated 200 Million active accounts as of December. When LinkedIn announced redesigned Company Pages in September, it created a home base for professionals to follow companies - keep an eye out for those numbers to grow. Reach Companies made almost half a million daily impressions on social channels in 2012. These brand touch points occurred not only with the individuals that opted in to connect with specific companies, but with the connections of those individuals as well - likeminded connections of your network who are also likely to share an interest in your brand.
