SlideShare is a social network in the same vein as Flickr or YouTube, but designed for sharing PowerPoint-style slide shows rather than photos or videos. That makes it a potentially powerful tool for communicating, sharing ideas and bringing in leads.
SlideShare is akin to Flickr or YouTube, in that it’s a network built around sharing a particular type of content, but instead of sharing photos or videos, you’re sharing slides from a presentation that was created with Microsoft PowerPoint or a similar business tool. These slides are often used to accompany presentations at conferences or even at internal meetings. These slides are often seen as pure distillations of thought leadership, since they’re designed to inspire others and are composed of easily digestible chunks of information.

Like it or not, social networking is here to stay - and not just as a forum for people to sound off or share life’s update. Social networking sites, armed with far more data than any of us probably realizes, are tagging along with us for our daily strolls through the Internet - listening to our music, reading our favorite blogs, watching our favorite videos and shopping for that special something.
Social media has become something absolutely necessary or required; unavoidable Facebook: is the mother of all things social media. It’s a place where people and businesses share interesting things with their friends. Where it trumps all other media is the interconnection between your friends and your friends’ friends, making “spreading the word” about your business to hundreds of people, who spread to hundred more, fast, cheap, and very effective.600 million users. Roughly 50% of Americans using FB. 50 percent of Facebook's users are creating and consuming content on the social network on any given day, and the average U.S. user spends nearly six hours per month browsing around on the social network.Average FB user has 130 friedsUseful data:20% increase in engagement for posts made outside business hour18% increase in engagement for posts on Thursday and Friday vs other days of week18% decrease in engagement for posts on Sat vs other days of weekTwitter: A tweet is short piece of content, limited to 140 characters, broadcast simultaneously to everyone who is “following you” via Twitter, which is the source of all tweets.

Roughly 7% of Americans are using Twitter. But with 460,000 new accounts being added daily and a 182% spike in mobile users over the past year, it’s clear Twitter’s growth chart is hearing up and to the right.Average Twitter user has 27 followers. But Lady GAA has nearly 10 million followers; big brand like Zappos has nearly 2 millionTwitter users are more educated than the general population: 63% have 4-year college degree or higher, as compared to 40% of the general population.Twitter users have higher incomes than the general population: 47% earn 50k or more per year; 24% earn more than 75K; compare that to 33% and 18% among the general population.Twitter plays an active role in purchasing decisions: 42% users reply on this channel to learn about new products/services, and 41% of them share opinions about products/services via Twitter.67% of Twitter users are more likely to buy brands than they “follow”Twitter users tend to be early adopters: 18% of Twitter users are among the first to buy/try new products,, compared to only 10% of the general population. An additional 25% of Twitter users buy/try new products before others as compared to only 12% of the general population.Companies that use Twitter average 2x more leads per month than those that do not.

More than 70% of Twitter's users are 21 or older, according to data from Nielsen and comScore, and that means the social site is fair game for liquor companies.

According to comScore, 1.1 trillion ads were served to U.S. internet users in the first quarter of 2011. Of those 1.1 trillion ads, 346 billion of those (31%) were on Facebook. Facebook now serves nearly one third of all online advertisements in the U.S.To help put this data into perspective, consider the representation of some of the other major online companies. Yahoo has a 10 percent share, Microsoft has 5 percent, and Google holds 2.5 percent. Basically, no other online company comes close to Facebook's market share.Facebook is like a mall where you go with your friends and you ‘pick up stuff” along the way. That stuff could be cosmetics or movie tickets, but it could also be software or consulting services.Implications for you as a marketerA powerful network of community members who are advocates and can serve as authentic evangelists to drive attention and awareness to your store versus your competitors is critical.Google, on the other hand, is a taxi: You need to know where you are going in order to get there. Smart marketers are learning to exploit both digital commerce models.
Zappos chief Tony Hsieh is an avid Twitter user, but he hates the phrase "social media" so much that he imposes on-the-spot fines on anyone he catches saying it. His point is that it's more important to focus on engagement and human interaction than on buzzwords and technological tricks. "What Tony is pointing to is a cultural mindset of an organization. Either you are truly engaged with the person on the other end of that interaction or you aren't," this blogger writes. The Takeaways: What You Should DoSocial is a given. So much so that the product marketing manager for YouTube went so far as to so “social, as a buzzword, is dead.” Connecting with people as people…based on THEIR core motivations is critical. (See here for more. Full free book here)Practice creating engaging experiences. A quick way to do this is Think Mobile First. Simply put…how would someone feel if they encounter this on their mobile device? (That’s a different paradigm-as you know-than a PC. We just need to catch up.)Campaigns are dead (or at least dying) because they are increasingly expensive ways of getting new customers. This, however, is a really, really cheap way of doing that.The CEO of Zappos Tony Hsieh has 1.8 million followers on Twitter, but he dislikes the term “social media.”In fact, if you say the word near him, you owe him a dollar.What Tony is pointing to is a cultural mindset of an organization. Either you are truly engaged with the person on the other end of that interaction or you aren’t. It doesn’t matter if that interaction occurs in person, on a phone call, via a website, or on Facebook, Twitter, or a YouTube channel.
Research reveals the right medium for every marketing needThe best medium to use to reach your customers depends on the time of day and your target audience. Research has found radio is king in the early-morning commuting hours, while television shines after 5 p.m. The Internet is popular throughout the day with a range of age groups, while newspapers are most popular with the baby boom generation.http://smallbiztrends.com/2011/10/best-media-buys.html
