Social Networking by Michelle Dye

April 28th, 2010

Hello my name is Michelle and I am a social networker!

It’s all the rave! It’s hot! Everyone has at least one!

Whether you Tweet, Fan, Friend, Post, blog, chat, comment, IM, lurk, text or even email. Social media is the BUZZ!

I personally maintain Facebook pages for my company, myself and a community club I belong to, Twitter pages both professionally and personal, Linkdin, Myspace and several blogs. At a recent confrence I had the pleasure of attending, it was all about social networking so much so, that a friend with me was sick of the words Twitter and Facebook! Gives a whole new meaning to the word “Twitterpated”!

The pros: it’s free and easy! The cons: Well it can be time consuming but only if you are doing it right!

Interesting Social Media Facts:

Did you know Ashton Kutcher and Ellen Degeneres (combined) have more Twitter followers than the population of Ireland, Norway, or Panama.
That 1 out of 8 couples married in the U.S. last year met via social media! Or that If Facebook were a country it would be the world’s 4th largest between the United States and Indonesia (note that Facebook is now creeping up – recently announced 300 million users)!

Years to Reach 50 millions Users: Radio (38 Years), TV (13 Years), Internet (4 Years), iPod (3 Years)…Facebook added 100 million users in less than 9 months…iPhone applications hit 1 billion in 9 months.

There are over 200,000,000 Blogs

78% of consumers trust peer recommendations
Only 14% trust advertisements

So if you want to friend me, fan me, follow me, connect with me or email me please do! In the mean time………….

Have a Twitterific day!
