Hello there! How are you doing?
Jo Barnes here from the Social Networking Academy and welcome to Facebook basics!
So, over the course of the next 3 videos, I'm going to introduce you to the most amazing tool in the world and I'm going to take you through step by step and show you exactly how to use it. But before we get over there, I would actually have a lot little conversation why use Social Media in the first place?
Social Media is just going mad. Let's have a look at some of this statistics:
First of all, look at this: Facebook took 3 years to reach 25 million users; Twitter, only took 2 & ½ years; MySpace took 1 year and 8 months , Google plus took one month to reach 25M users. That just show that social media is growing and expanding and going mad.
46% of people globally access the social network. 40-50% of the populations are accessing one social network or another.
Every minute, 24 hours of video is uploaded to Youtube. There are more than 2 billion video views on Youtube every 24 hours.
Every minute 66, 667 tweets are made on Twitter. 95 million tweets are written every single day.
People spending over 700 billion minutes each month on Facebook with more than 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, etc.) being shared every month, an average of 7 billion pieces a week.
More than one million companies have Linkedin Company pages. There were nearly 2 billion people searches on Linkedin during 2010.
And check these out guys, if you think social media was about the kids?
The average profile now on Linkedin is 40. Twitter is 35. And currently the fastest growing age on Facebook is now in the 35-54 range.
So, social media is here. It's not going anywhere. It's here to stay and if you have a business and not embracing social media then you could be late with a lot of customers and a lot of cash on the table.
So, let's have a look at what I consider on the Big 5 at the moment! Okay?
Of course, we got Facebook that's what we're talking about here today.
There's also now Google+, this is a new kid on the block but growing very very fast just as business pages very recently.
And Twitter, Linkedin and Youtube.
Now, I mean there are loads and loads of different social network out there but these are what I'm calling the Big 5.
And therefore these are the ones that we have training on in the Social Networking Academy. We primarily train on Facebook but we also have some overview training on all the different networks as well as to show you how to get your account everything set up on those. So, what we're looking up of course today is Facebook. Why Facebook?
Let's run through a few stats on just Facebook as well at the moment.
There are 800 million users of Facebook. 1 in 9 people across the whole wide world are now using Facebook.
50% of those are active on a daily basis.
350 million people are logging unto Facebook through their mobile phones every single day.
