More than 2 billion people around the world used social media in the past 30 days, and these numbers are still growing at an impressive rate.

So how can marketers get global social ‘right’? The answer lies in the 6Cs of Social, which we explore in this presentation and our accompanying analysis, which you'll find at http://wearesocial.sg/blog/2014/08/6cs-global-social-media/

  • Thanks for your comment @coralpeng - we recognise that this may not represent the usage we see on the street, but Tencent is reporting these as active user numbers on Tencent Weibo, so we'll rely on those for now. It's a bit like the same debate on Google+ in the US, and is probably dependent on what platforms define as 'active' use. Having said that, if you have more reliable numbers - for this or any other platform in China - we'd love to see them!

  • page 24, don't just grab the data, check with locals, Tencent Weibo isn't the leading Weibo service in China. putting it up there doesn't make any sense.

  • Nice presentation Team. However, a small correction. Please modify statements similar to 'How do brand's...' on slides, into a grammatically correct form, such as 'How does brand's...' or 'How do brands''...
