  26. 26. Fanatics “I think any brand not taking part in social media is going to lose.” “I don’t think I would be where I am right now without social media.” I am enthusiastic and engaged with social media. I am heavily involved in all social media activities and visit social media sites frequently. I use Facebook and Twitter most often. I feel social media has had a significant impact on my life. I consider myself an influencer in terms of staying ahead of the times and like the fact that social media provides me with an outlet to voice my opinion and new ideas. Social media is fulfilling a need for the spotlight: • 92% say that they are interested in Heavy media users: 1 in 3 are online requests for their opinions & ideas. for 30+ hours per week They are the youngest: 2 in 3 are under 34 Most likely to be single Their enthusiasm isn’t waning … only 2% of them say they are using Facebook less today than they were 6 months ago. 26
  27. 27. “Obviously, there’s something wrong with Virtual Voyeurs me. I don’t have anything worth sharing with them. Other than posting this column now and then, I am mute. A voyeur, of sorts. A lurker in the cyber shadows.” - Craig Wilson, USA Today “I go to social media pages when someone sends me a message, but otherwise I kind of forget it exists.” I use social media to stay connected to friends/family. I don’t really consider myself an influencer per se but I like to see what others are saying online and so I read other people’s status and blog updates though don’t really write my own. I don’t necessarily feel more informed about news or event since I have joined social media sites but I enjoy it nonetheless. While they are not contributing, 82% 85% have never written a are going more than once a day to social networks. They are very active. recommendation Put the “social” in social media (primary reason for being on these sites is to keep They are being fed more than they up with family & friends). are feeding the system…watching more than contributing
  28. 28. Taking Care of Business “It's the main way I keep in touch with friends, locally and away from home. It's also how I find out about events in the area.” I am engaged with social media but I am not as enthusiastic as when I first joined. I have been participating in social media for a while and make sure to update my status often. I bank online and use LinkedIn a lot as well. Since using social media, I am a little more concerned with information security. Have a high income Early adopters; case in point - their Facebook duration – 41% have been there over a year (more than segment 3) Tend to use social media in a more practical way More middle age Most likely to visit LinkedIn 28
  29. 29. Late to the “Social media scares me … it’s a little Party more information than I need to know.” “I finally caved in and joined Facebook last month…it’s so much fun to find old friends from high school.” I am pretty new to social media. I still like to read paper and magazines in print format but figured with all the buzz around social media I should probably join to check it out. I recently joined Facebook. I don’t feel social media has changed my life very much but it does allow me to feel more connected to distant family members and old acquaintances. The oldest group, with about Highest income (41% make $75k or more) half over the age of 45 Don’t appear to be terribly tech savvy They don’t update their status This is the group that uses magazines the most Been there less than 6 months 29
  30. 30. “It's a lot easier to know what's going on in your Teens friends' lives, even if you don't talk to them often. But, it's superficial . You aren't actually communicating with them, it's more like occasionally stalking them. I prefer to talk to someone directly to know what's happening in their life and how they feel about it.” “I never pay attention to *brands on social media+. I only use the sites for social reasons.” I am new to social media – of course, this is not because I am "late to the party.” I use social media for many activities, but mostly for playing games and watching videos. I’m only on to keep in touch with my friends – I don’t really care about news networks or brands. These sites are highly entertaining and allow me to express my creative side. Most likely to be on MySpace Find Social Media extremely entertaining – 83% play games on social media sites and 51% upload video. 30
