Useful Statistics on Social Media Today [INFOGRAPHIC]

Social media is the future of marketing. 85% of businesses who partake in social media have reported an increase in market exposure and yet 30% of businesses do not utilize social media fully because they lack professional employees in the field.

The Power of Positive Tweets

What's the value of a tweet? A lot according to a study conducted by Deloitte that concluded positive Tweets by brands were four times as effective as non-Twitter advertising for driving sales.

Image from: careerrocketeer.comThe study titled 'Tweets for Sales: Gaming', looked at the impact Tweet response had on the sales of 100 best-selling Xbox and PlayStation 3 video game titles of 2012 in the UK. It was found that Electronic Arts (EA) Games received over 500, 000 mentions and a 29 per cent engagement rate during its launch of the "Fifa 13", its most popular football game. How'd they do it? They planned in advance. Before a big match like the Manchester City and Manchester United derby, EA began building the relationship between the fan and the game through its fantasy team of the week via Twitter thus driving engagement and ultimately increasing sales of its game packs.

Another one of EA's biggest successes was the celebration of Lionel Messi scoring for the 86th time in 2012, in turn breaking Gerd Mueller's 40-year-old record for most goals in a year. Launching a giveaway using the #86messi hashtag, EA was mentioned more than 50,000 times.

Is Twitter a threat to CNN? Last week, He's smart to be afraid.

CNN President Jeff Zucker, was quoted as saying "Twitter is a frenemy" and "the network uses, relies on, and is scared by, social media."When key moments of the Boston marathon explosion unfolded, millions flocked to, not their televisions, but their smart phones and laptops, for updates. When the suspects were cornered on a quiet, residential street, it was a resident, not a journalist, who documented and shared the events from his upstairs window via Twitter and Skype. And it was Twitter, not a news station or even a press release that announced the end of the manhunt after the second suspect was found hiding in a boat.
