Just another WordPress.com weblog

Social networking a-go-go!

Thank you to all of you who gave feedback on the event, it proved very helpful in the meeting.

For those of you (perhaps unfortunate people) who follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that in recent weeks, I’ve been investigating social media applications.

I’ve been looking at how each one works and how people interact on there, the answer is quite differently on each site!

At the moment I’m getting my head around the ‘business purposes’ of LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook .

Considering its recent surge in popularity, it may be surprising to learn that approximately 60% of Twitter users drop out after one month. (This statistic is from Neilsen Wire and applies to US Tweeters. In comparison, the retention rate of Facebook and LinkedIn is approximately 70%.)

What are your thoughts?

(And just because I’ve learnt how to do it, I’ve added a little poll for you too! 🙂 )
