    Aurelius,

    Thanks for the snapshot of social media use

    It is enlightening to view these numbers and ask
    oneself as a marketer,

    “How are we using or not using social media?
    What opportunities are we missing?
    What specific action steps should we be implementing”

    Hi Aurelius, You did a great job constructing this beautiful infographic. There are very useful stats here. I am a bit surprised to see Google+ is not considered top 5 social media by adults though. Thanks for sharing

      Thank you Susan. Yes, though Google+ is getting more and more popular. People just need to be exposed to it, just like Facebook.

    Hi Aurelius,

    I really like your infographic excellent work :).

    Please forgive me for this but is there any reason why you didnt mention what percentage the age group of 20-29 year olds use social media?

    You went to 30-49 after you did 18-19 year olds?

    Surely 20-29 year old data should be mentioned as it is a key age group for social media involvement?

    Once again im sorry if i’ve misunderstood the infographic.

    Great work.

    Thanks for sharing this useful information.

      Thanks for spotting that. I think it’s an error in our part. My designer must’ve forgot to put it. Appreciate your comment

    83% of people from 18-19? I guess it has to 18-29!?!

    Hi Aurelius,
    Hi Aurelius,

    Do you have more information on creating these? I only just heard about them but am VERY fuzzy on the logistics. Any info would be appreciated. IS there a software?

    Great job, very compelling. WE could create something like this for a blog or an email or even for an ebook?
    Do they take up a lot of space?

    For example, I have heard that kindle doesnt tolerate images to well. They take up so much space that will charge you to upload your book. But I think this would be great in paid ebooks.

    I am presently working on some ebooks for that purpose. Thanks much! Mary

      Hi Mary. You can easily outsource infographics from places like odesk.com and other freelance sites. It should cost about $50.

      I would not recommend to use them in an ebook as it’s quite large.

      It’s better to just share it on your blog and especially to Pintrest. It’ll attract a lot of social traffic because of its virality.
