In October 2009, Euro RSCG Worldwide commissioned a survey to map the trajectory of social life and social media usage in the United States, quizzing 1,228 Americans from all online demographics. This white paper looks at the macro developments in social media; it also brings in numbers and verbatims about people’s hopes for their social life online and offline before finally drawing conclusions and implications for marketers and their clients. The study found, for instance, that by interacting through online media, American consumers are more connected than ever and have dramatically integrated social networking tools into their lives. According to the study, their world is expanding and narrowing at the same time because of social media’s hyperlocalization quotient. Among the takeaways for marketers: It’s impossible to predict how bits of communication will spread across social media; as most traditional media converge online, communication flows among them, and consumers become messengers.
