2008 Social Media Statistics by New Media Lab

Twitter Logo and Link

The Twitter phenomena is on us!  Thanks to Active Rain blogs from so many of you, I joined this month.  My first impressions are: 

1.  Whee.....    I never saw so much information explode in front of my screen and I only follow 72 people! Imagine the information explosion for guys like our governor Bobby Jindal who follows 3,071 folks.  Or Barak Obama who follows 168,024 folks.

2.  I gathered information and valuable links I never knew I needed like the statistics below from Brian Castillo, a fellow Active Rainer and local Tweeter.

3.  I attended a Tweetup and met some local folks who are really neat, and very different from me and have a collective knowledge I didn't know was available locally.

4.  I'm creatively reflecting on how to do this and tie it into my warm market marketing which is where my business is primarily generated.

Here are the latest statistice on Twitter, Facebook, and other Social Media from Austin's New Media Lab nmlab.com .  Look at the explosion for twitter and the user profile:

*Grew 752% in 2008, 4.4 million unique monthly visitors

*1,128,618,000 tweets so far

*60% of users are male, 40% are female

*45% have a college degree, 15% have a graduate degree

*50% have household incomes over $75,000

*20% are under 35, 40% are aged 35-44, 40% are 45 and older
