Notes
  • Conversation yesterday with Damien Van Achter (@davanac): Benelux (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg) is an interesting microcosm to study branding on international social media. Jupiler (beer) seems to be a good example of a local brand that works at customizing campaigns toward each community

  3. Creating Value 2. Bringing value back to Austin 1. Delivering value where we go Meeting Social Media Users, Entrepreneurs and Experts outside of the USA,  to learn about business and social innovations being invented,  to connect those entrepreneurs to the US Social Media business community,  to share with the Austin community our learning and the ideas that are transferable and can create value in the USA.
  4. Most of us probably agree that Social Media is a global phenomena. Templates Your own sub headline 72% of the global internet population is now active on social networks 74% of Facebook users are not American. 78% of Wikipedia articles are non-English. Brazilians are more active on social networks than Americans.
  5. Social networks are used everywhere
  6. Social networks are used everywhere and, Facebook remains best known.
  7. Current players have solid positions because there is room for just a couple of SN in your life. Adoption time Product Customer Operational Innovation relationship Excellence 84% of users are only member of a personal website 13% have also member of a professional website
  8. And positions seem well established because Social Networks are “sticky” (and addictive?) More existing users have no intention to deactivate/switch/add membership.
  9. 80% of users in US owned websites based on the 189 Social Networks listed in Wikipedia. Over 1.2 Billion Users participate in Social Networks owned by US companies.
  10. It looks like the USA has won another high-tech battle. Best Hardware Best Desktop Software Best Search Engine Best Social Networks
  11. It looks like the USA has won another high-tech battle. Why? Probably because it is just the most efficient economy. 1 Talented and educated workforce 2 Efficient consumer market 3 Efficient capital market
  12. Even if the next (r)evolution is likely to happen quickly… … Social Media is probably here to stay.
  13. So… Social Media has already acquired an apparent maturity. Templates Your own sub headline 74% of Facebook users are outside of the USA. US Social Media companies “owned” 80% of global users. Player positions are relatively solid in the social media space. Social Media is here to stay as an innovation.
  14. Is the Social Media battle really over? Has Asian and Middle Eastern Audiences fully tapped? Penetration of Facebook Facebook (tan) and Others • Several regions with very large populations have still huge growth potential • Emergence of local players remains possible in those countries
  15. Where is the value? and, the Revenue??? Facebook Estimated Value: $11b Google Market Cap : $155b Social Media is still searching for business opportunity.
  16. Innovation may come from elsewhere Centralized vs. Decentralized innovation. Hardware, Software and Search Social Media offers more space Engines are mostly invented for decentralized innovation. centrally and distributed.
  17. Innovation may come from elsewhere Centralized vs. Decentralized innovation. Social Media is not disconnected from real life. Interactions are happening locally.
  18. Innovation may come from elsewhere Centralized vs. Decentralized innovation. Since 74% of the Users are now outside of the USA, it is likely that breakthrough innovation and business opportunities are getting invented outside of the USA. Creation of business and social value that can be transferable to the USA and/or elsewhere. Facebook Platform Statistics as of May 2010 • More than one million developers and entrepreneurs from more than 180 countries • More than 550,000 active applications currently on Facebook Platform • Every month, more than 70% of Facebook users engage with Platform applications • More than 250,000 websites have integrated with Facebook Platform • More than 100 million Facebook users engage with Facebook on external websites every month Not even talking about Social Media on Mobile Apps…
