  • … Adoption rates for social media are very impressive. And while many initially perceived social tools as youth media, it’s clear that social media is not – it’s mainstream and maturing… with the average age of users of social utilities ranging from the upper 20’s to mid-40’s. And while some organizations are still grappling with the questions of whether their employees will “get it,” let alone flock to social media… The data tells a very different story. Boomers are the fastest growing segment in this space and women 54+ are demographic outpacing everyone. [Color comment about mother-in-law.]Justin comment about 72-year-old stepmother on Facebook
  • Recent research demonstrates just how pervasive social technology has become on a global level. In just a few years time, we’ve seen a major shift in people’s online behavior… …From logging on to check personal email to logging on to check social sites….and spending a lot more time there than ever before. And it’s not only that social sites have become the fourth most popular online activity, but it’s also that more and more of us are accessing these sites remotely from our phones – rarely sitting down at a desk to computer, opting for texting and socializing on-the-go. Forrester Facebook study – When people have access to smartphone with easy access to socnets, almost 50% access social media via mobile Smartphones now number 25 million, nearly double the total a year ago and a tenfold increase in the last four years (NY Times, June 2009) Smartphone usage expected to increase 25% in 2009Sources: Forrester, the growth of social technology adoption, 2008Nielsen, global faces & networked places, 2009Brian Solis blog: http://www.briansolis.com/2009/10/the-great-social-divide-twitter-facebook-traffic-surges-myspace-fades/
  • Emerging Tactic: The flip side of these virtual, avatar-based meetings is the increasing adoption of voice over IP tools like Skype and VPN-based solutions like Telepresence. These tools simulate face-to-face meetings and a sense of “being there.” Both low-end and high-end solutions for business needs: Skype is the low-cost, scrappier alternative, whereas telepresence is the high-def, investment-grade version. Bringing back the “human factor” to the conference call, these social technologies can actually catalyze team innovation, R&D and speed to market through the addition of file-sharing and collaboration tools.Phenomenon in social media (e.g. Twitter and tweetups) of using technology to meet up in real life; face-to-face always importantLooking to save time and money, companies are turning to video-chat software as a cheap, low-hassle way to vet job candidates.
