Stats of Facebook and Pinterest: See all the numbers for yourself

Stats on Facebook and Pinterest

See all the numbers for yourself!

I don’t know about you, but I use social media every virtually every day. Whether I’m updating a listing on Trulia or Zillow and then alerting Facebook, or I’m blogging on ActiveRain or LinkedIn, I’m constantly in contact with social media and free advertising websites. After a while of doing this, however, I start to feel like sometimes I’m just putting information out there “to the universe of cyber world”. It’s always good to touch bases with reality and see how many people actually are viewing these websites. So here are some reassuring stats I came across about Facebook and Pinterest that peaked my interest.

Facebook:

Has 845 million active users.

Accounts for one out of every five pageviews on the internet worldwide.

Users share over one hundred billion connections collectively.

Over 50% of the North American population uses Facebook.

Daily, 250 million photos are uploaded to Facebook.

Every day there are over 2.7 billion likes.

Demographics on Facebook users: 57% female, 43% male.

Mobile users now ad up to 425 million mobile users.

On average, uses spend twenty minutes on the site per visit to the site.

Brands increased 46% engagement with Facebook Timeline.

 

Pinterest:

Almost 70% of Pinterest users are women.

28% of users are in the 35-44 age range while another 27% are between the ages of 25-34.

Since its inception it has grown from ten million total visits to seventeen total visits.

It’s in the top 20 most popular websites in the U.S.

Provides more referral traffic to other sites than Google+. Youtube AND LinkeIn combined.

Fifty percent of users have children.

 

So as you can see, these two very frequented and ‘most popular’ sites, are indeed frequented quite a bit! I find it truly encouraging that so many people out there have the potential to see my blogs, ads and website. Hope this gave you a little lift as well that people are really out there on these sites.

It's a great way to show what you know about your field and your county

Pinterest really seems to be getting very popular. It's fun to use, so I can see why people are on it.

Hey Malcolm, I've began creating boards for not only things that are business related, but also boards that are for local life. It's a great way to promote other businesses so they will return the favor as well as support your favorite local hot spots. For example: since we are located in Sonoma County I've created a board for wineries that are local with great tasting rooms and a board for breweries and what kinds of beer they offer. Get innovative.

Oh boy Lynn, great idea on the local businesses boards!!!

I came over from your social madness blog and as promised I'm reading some of your other blogs.  I find a golden nugget (or great idea) in so many places on AR.  I just don't have time to implement them all. 

I've been on Pinterest for about a month or 2 and I'm experimenting with it.  I don't want to tick people off by linking everything to my website so one of the things I did is go out and take local pictures.  My daughter is getting into photography and she took some down by our waterfront and at a local historical building.  That way,no problem with the ownership of the pictures, something I'm cautious of.  I created a page in my website call "About Hamilton" with some history and facts on my city.  Then I linked the photos of Hamilton to that page.   I have a lot of stuff on Pinterest that is not linked to my website and I've been trying to think of how to better use it for business.  I really like the idea of promoting local business/local life.  Did you ask them for something specific in return?

Not particularly. I find that by promoting local businesses and activities that they will find me and like my page, board, pin or whatever they're tagged in. I've also found that if I simple include them in tags and posts on Facebook or Pinterest that other profiles for my business get hits from those that I've tagged. What comes around goes around is the conclusion I've come to.
