The Social Media Data Stacks Social media is a powerful force. Consider these facts. ¾Social media site users spend an average of 5.4 hours a month engaged in networking sites. ¾Facebook attracts 734.2 million unique visitors a month. ¾Half of TV viewers tweet about TV shows. It is little wonder that marketers work so hard to keep pace of the social media momentum. In MarketingCharts’ “The Social Media Data Stacks” you will get the latest data on the incredible reach and influence of Facebook and other social media sites, as well as critical information on how marketers are reacting to and budgeting for social media. One of the most surprising statistics is that 68% of CMOs report that they feel “unprepared” for the challenges of social media marketing. Many of the 45 charts and accompanying analysis will help provide you with key data that can explain why social media marketing is so challenging, and when done well, so rewarding. We hope you’ll find the information in this data stack helpful to your social media marketing efforts. Enjoy! The HubSpot Team
