  • 6. Methodology: How we did it The research has retained a consistent methodology throughout Wave 1, 2 and 3. All surveys have been scripted and hosted on Universal McCann’s in-house online research system, Intuition. All surveys are self completion and the data collected is entirely quantitative. Every market is representative of the 16-54 Active Internet Universe. In this Wave 17,000 internet users in 29 countries were interviewed. To be included you need to be using the internet everyday or every other day. 6/ 70 93 95 /3 rk a m lt e s/a ot o /ph co m www.fickr.

Market by market universe estimates 61m 26 27 2. Penetration of usage among all 16-54s. Both these figures are estimates based on 21 the above universe sizes. When estimating 24 global usage figures of different social media 25 technologies we make the fair assumption that the vast majority of users will be active 22 28 users and between the ages of 16-54. How did we get to these universe figures? Local market data from TGI, Simmons or equivalent provided penetration figures for 16-54s by market and levels of active usage. These were correlated with Internet World Stats, CIA World Factbook and Comscore. 29 The general rule is the more developed a market is, the higher in home and at work internet connections are, which leads to higher levels of active usage.
