Google+ becoming a major factor

While Facebook continues to lead the group in terms of account ownership, Google+ is quickly gaining popularity, and in fact, now has the second highest number of monthly users with 50% of active users. It is reported that Google is using the platform to collect personal information (demographics, location, etc.) thus making the role of Google+ more prominent in Google’s grand scheme in terms of SEO, social signals and providing a more personalised search experience. With Google merging its new and old products, setting up Google Authorship  will be a top priority for business and webmasters.

Google Plus a major factor Pinterest will see huge success

Pinterest along with other image-centric social media sites like Slideshare, Path, and Tumblr will increasingly become a critical piece of any solid content strategy. This is indicative to the consistent trend seen in 2013 towards sharing through image and video, rather than text-based content. Businesses need to be mindful about this ‘sharability factor’ to obtain significant benefits from their social media marketing efforts. Pinterest and Tumblr have reportedly registered growth rates of 88% and 74% respectively and are the fastest growing social networks.

 LinkedIn active usage by professionals still holding steady

With over 238 million users, LinkedIn still holds its repute as the no.1 social networking site for professionals. In fact, with the launch of the Influencers program (a network of experts and leaders in different fields who regularly publish posts which are featured on the site’s home page and email marketing campaigns) LinkedIn is positioning itself as one of the largest sources of content creation and editing for professionals. According to the latest stats, 7% of its users are over 55 years and 14% in the 45-54 range clearly indicating the popularity of the network among the older and younger demographics.
