PRimage like Pew Research: Why most Facebook users get more than they give

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Judy Viitanen has been checking out a fascinating new study about Facebook, from Pew Research. The study is very interesting as for the first time it combines server logs of Facebook activity with survey data to explore the structure of Facebook friendship networks and measures of social well-being. It shows that many users receive more from their Facebook friends than they give, whether the measurement is the number of friend requests received, the use of the “like” button, the number of messages sent or tagging people in photos.

It appears that the main factor driving this phenomenon is that there is a segment of “power users” who specialize in different Facebook activities and contribute much more than the typical user does.

Millennials Look to Digital Word-of-Mouth to Drive Purchase Process – PRimage comment

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Judy Viitanen and PRimage find this new report very interesting. It seems that younger consumers more likely to share purchase experiences with the masses. If this study is accurate, businesses may need to adjust their marketing strategy for millennials.

In a few short years, millennials—consumers currently ages 18 to 34—will account for a sizeable portion of US purchase decision-makers. Yet Bazaarvoice found these digital natives are already using and creating online content to recommend or dissuade friends, family and anonymous site-visitors from a brand, product or service.

Compared to their older counterparts, baby boomers, millennial internet users showed a greater reliance on anonymous recommendations and reviews when making purchase decisions. Bazaarvoice found 66% of boomers ages 47 to 65 turned to known parties for information and recommendations to influence their purchase decisions over user-generated content. Millennials, on the other hand, were almost equal in their reliance on friends and family (49%) vs. anonymous user-generated content from company websites (51%) to influence their buying decisions.

Bazaarvoice defined user-generated content as any on-site content created by internet users. This included reviews, comments, stories and questions. Like with traditional word-of-mouth, internet users seek out these insights to compare products, services and even brands.

The study also found millennials more likely to share their own purchasing experiences—both positive and negative—with the masses. Aside from company websites, forty-two percent of millennial internet users said they preferred to post comments on social networking sites about positive product, brand or service experiences in order to share their experience, compared to just 17% of baby boomers. And slightly more millennials (25%) preferred to share positive information on third-party sites such as CNET and Consumer Reports than did boomers (21%).

In 2012….I hope the kindness you’ve given to others returns many times to you.
May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,
The foresight to know where you’re going,
And the insight to know when you’re going too far.
May hope, love, and warmth be in your heart’s possessing,
And may the New Year bring you and yours many blessings.
Happy New Year!

Twitter is Tops! – Big ‘like’ from PRimage

Monday, October 31st, 2011



PRimage loves Twitter …. So as a keen social media follower and practitioner, Judy Viitanen was interested to read that Twitter led all social networks in the percentage increase of sharing by members from launch until now, according to an infographic released in October 2011 by Unruly Media. Analysis by Unruly Media indicates that from its inception until now, shares on Twitter grew an astounding 35,356%. This was more than six times the 5,809% growth in Facebook Likes.

Other social media networks with substantial increases in shares since their launch include LinkedIn (3,226%), StumbleUpon (2,912%) and Tumblr (1,142%).

It’s good to talk! PRimage on women and mobile phones ….

Sunday, September 25th, 2011
Despite all the usual jokes and gender stereotypes of women talking on the phone all the time, when it comes to mobile cell phones men are more likely to place a call according to a new Pew Research study: Fascinating!
Seems that on average, male cell phone users place 13.8 calls perday, compared to only 10.8 for women.
