My response to this Fast Company blog post… A lot of these don’t really surprise me. I don’t really consider myself in touch with social media etc. but the stats still make sense to me.
1. The fastest growing demographic on Twitter is the 55–64 year age bracket.
Not really surprising. Considering twitter is relatively “old” at this point I’d think most of the younger crowd is already in it if they’re going to be in it.
3. YouTube reaches more U.S. adults aged 18–34 than any cable network
This one is also not surprising, considering we still, in 2013, cannot easily watch cable on the computer or phone! That said, I don’t think this would change anyone’s social media strategy.
6. LinkedIn has a lower percentage of active users than Pinterest, Google+, Twitter and Facebook
LinkedIn has always been shady in my opinion so I’m glad the active user count is low. What purpose is there to visit LinkedIn (unless you’re looking for a job)? Twitter and facebook is where the new content is at.
10. 25% of Facebook users don’t bother with privacy settings
OK this one is surprising… I expected that number to be higher!
