  8. “When access to the internet is at the mercy of a monopoly, the previously seen stats are the harsh side- effects of that.”
  9. I mean… •Even for the extremely limited internet population, there is no notable trends. •What are our South Africans doing on internet?
  10. I mean… •Even for the extremely limited internet population, there is no notable trends. •What are our South Africans doing on internet? •The number of SA blogs tracked by Afrigator in relation to the number of SA LinkedIn profiles. •Do our professionals know what blogging is?
  11. I mean… •Even for the extremely limited internet population, there is no notable trends. •What are our South Africans doing on internet? •The number of SA blogs tracked by Afrigator in relation to the number of SA LinkedIn profiles. •Do our professionals know what blogging is? •Notice the 1.8mil SA FaceBook users in relation to the 6.5mil MXit users. •Are these the benefits of a mobile accessible platform?
  12. There is one relationship, probably growing strong… FaceBook MXit •“Most (60%) users are 18- 25 years old” MXit GM - Moneyweb •“There is a interesting change happening in the MXit demographics - more and more older people are signing up” MXit CEO - Tweet

  17. My conjecture •Those at high school, college or university register under their respected institution network, instead of the designated South Africa network.
  18. My conjecture •Those at high school, college or university register under their respected institution network, instead of the designated South Africa network. • If you did the math, that means 48% of SA FaceBook user are still seriously young. The consequences of that is inability to comprehend or even become clients in our web endeavors.
  19. My conjecture •Those at high school, college or university register under their respected institution network, instead of the designated South Africa network. • If you did the math, that means 48% of SA FaceBook user are still seriously young. The consequences of that is inability to comprehend or even become clients in our web endeavors. • Then because of the relationship between MXit and FaceBook – 48% miss out on targeted campaigns, link shares & RSS feeds etc.
  20. My conjecture •Those at high school, college or university register under their respected institution network, instead of the designated South Africa network. • If you did the math, that means 48% of SA FaceBook user are still seriously young. The consequences of that is inability to comprehend or even become clients in our web endeavors. • Then because of the relationship between MXit and FaceBook – 48% miss out on targeted campaigns, link shares & RSS feeds etc. • This is probably why our FaceBook pages stagnate and our Ad campaigns fails to see maximum ROI
