Adults and Social Network Websites

Thursday, January 15th, 2009 af Søren Madsen

Ny rapport fra Pew Internet & American Life Project: Adults and Social Network Websites eller læs pressemeddelelsen med mere udybbende information: Social Networks Grow: Friending Mom and Dad

Hele undersøgelsen: Adults and Social Network Websites (17 s./pdf)

Highlights fra undersøgelsen:

“One third (35%) of American adult internet users have a profile on an online network site, four times as many as three years ago, but still much lower than the of online American teens who use social networks.”

Young people are much more likely than older adults to use social networks.
75% of online adults 18-24 have a profile on a social network site
57% of online adults 25-34 have a profile on a social network
30% of online adults 35-44 have one
19% of online 45 to 54 year olds have a profile
10% of online 55 to 64 year olds have a profile
7% of online adults 65 and older have a profile

“Overall, personal use of social networks seems to be more prevalent than professional use of networks, both in the orientation of the networks that adults choose to use as well as the reasons they give for using the applications.”

“Online social network applications are mainly used for explaining and maintaining personal networks, and most adults, like teens, are using them to connect with people they already know.”

Lidt statistik om Facebook og MySpace

Thursday, January 17th, 2008 af Søren Madsen

På bloggen Web Strategist (fra Forrester) er det muligt at finde ny statistik om brugen af Facebook og MySpace. Derudover nævnes også Reunion, som ser ud til kun at dække USA.

Social Network Stats: Facebook, MySpace, Reunion (Jan, 2008)

Et par smagsprøver:

Facebook:
* More than 60 million active users
* An average of 250,000 new registrations per day since Jan. 2007

MySpace:
* MySpace has more than 110 million monthly active users around the globe
* On average 300,000 new people sign up to MySpace every day

Sociale medier som kommunikationsforum

Sunday, January 13th, 2008 af Søren Madsen

De sociale medier (Facebook, MySpace m. fl.) ligger ikke lige for, hvis man studerende eller ansat på University of Michigan skal kommunikere med biblioteket. Kun 23% siger ‘Ja’ eller ‘Måske’ i en undersøgelse foretaget på netop University of Michigan.

Hvad laver de så på Facebook?

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007 af Søren Madsen

En undersøgelse fra Compete har set på brugen af Facebook i august.

Det viser ikke ikke overraskende at de fleste søgte efter profiler. Derefter følger brugen af applikationer og billedkigning.

 Facebook havde i alt i august 22.000.000 unikke besøgende, hvilket gør det til den 3. mest besøgte site overgået af konkurrenten MySpace. 

Fra Competes blog: 14 million people interacted with Facebook Applications in August & Facebook now ranked 3rd in Page Views; MySpace down nearly 20%
