The Power of Social Media

While checking out websites online, I came across an article by Michael Sebastian titled Mobile Marketing. This article contained several interesting statistics regarding social media and other forms of communication.

I discovered there are 4 billion mobile phones currently used in the World today. More than likely, this number will only continue to grow. Out of these 4 billion cellphones worldwide, 1.08 billion are smartphones, which means the users phone contains Internet.

This number is so significant because it shows how easily getting to different forms of social media is!

Americans spend 2.7 hours a day socializing on their phones. That’s twice the amount of time Americans spend eating!

Over 1/3 of Facebook’s 600 million users use Facebook Mobile, and out of Twitter’s 165 million users, 50% use Twitter mobile. These statistics show PR professionals how important it is to have some form of social media for their business!

This article is proof that today people world wide are constantly using social media to get their news and communicate so get out there and join!
