What Teens post 2006 Vs 2012

The frequency of teen social media usage may have reached a plateau; three in four teen social media users visit the sites on a daily basis.

Older teens who are social media users more frequently share:
  • Photos of themselves on their profile (94% older teens vs. 82% of younger teens)
  • Their school name (76% vs. 56%)
  • Their relationship status (66% vs. 50%)
  • Their cell phone number (23% vs. 11%)
16% of teen social media users have set up their profile to automatically include their location in posts.  

African-American teens are substantially more likely to report using Twitter when compared with white youth.

Zeus - The (F)actor behind the Likes on Social Media

Hackers are using the Zeus virus to create bogus ‘likes' and followers that purport to come from users of #Facebook, #Twitter, #Instagram, and other #social media sites. The scheme is aimed at making products appear more popular.

Fake ‘likes’ are sold in batches of 1,000 on internet hacker forums. One thousand fake Instagram followers will cost just US$15, while 1,000 ‘likes’ will go for $30. In comparison, 1,000 #credit card numbers from a stolen PC cost as little as $6.  What’s the price to curb these?

No wonder #GM pulled out of #Social media marketing. What about the Likes/Followers which the politicians have? Well, timing is the essence; all the answers will be slowly rolled out.
