July 9, 2009 – AdvertisingAge published a great article based on a new study by Anderson Analytics that attempts to identify possible user habits, including purchasing decisions, media consumption, and so on through the use of social media networks. The study took into account both demographics and psychographics of social media participants as well as non-users, including how much time was spent logged into social media networks and general feelings about brands participating in social media. The survey found that 52% of social media users had friended/followed at least one brand, which is exciting news for online marketers looking for new channels for website promotion and target audience interaction. Other highlights from the survey include:
- Facebook users tend to be extremely loyal to the site, with 75% of respondents claiming Facebook was their favorite social media network and 59% stating that they plan on increasing their logged in Facebook time over the next 6 months.
- Twitter fans are more likely to shop online and to use the service to promote their own websites, brands, etc.
