  16. 16. Source Date ProposeIntro Prepare © 2016 David Teten. More at teten.com Why should I care about social media for dating? • Because 3 out of 4 Americans use social technology. (Forrester, The Growth Of Social Technology Adoption, 2008) • 2/3 of global internet population visit social networks (Nielsen, Global Faces & Networked Places, 2009) • Visiting social sites is now the 4th most popular online activity—ahead of personal email. (Nielsen, Global Faces & Networked Places, 2009) • Visitors spend 5 million minutes per day on Facebook.

More at teten.com But I don’t use social media, and neither do (some of) my targets! • The reality: you and your targets are in the matrix whether you like it or not. • Your candidates search for you on Google before meeting you. • You can accelerate your sales process by leveraging potential candidates’ digital footprints. These help you to source leads, filter them, and then run a better educated sales process. http://www.slideshare.net/mzkagan/what-is-social-media-2005829 . http://www.flickr.com/photos/sreejithk2000/2385193167/sizes/l/
