Social Media has redefined the way most of us do business today. It is the most explosively growing media of all-time and is becoming more prolific with each passing day with no slow-down in sight. The number of social media users is rising at record levels and according to the Social Media Examiner, in 2010, 75% of U.S. households were participating in some form of social networking. The global figures were nearly identical. The statistics are overwhelming; visit the Examiner to see for yourself.
Now found in almost every U.S. home, it took radio 38 years to reach 50 million households. It took television 13 years to reach 50 million users. Facebook added 100 million users in less than 9 months and iPhone applications hit 1 BILLION in 9 months.
Wherever we are going, we’re going fast and there is no sign of a let up.
