Did you know that 57 million people read and follow blogs, according to PR Daily? On top of that, more than 12 million adults actually maintain their own blog. Almost 700 million people use Facebook, and Twitter boasts about 175 million users.
Social networking use has increased among 36- to 49-year-olds by 4 percent (from 22 percent in 2008 to 26 percent in 2010) and among 50- to 55-year-olds by 11 percent (from 9 percent in 2008 to 20 percent in 2010).
Still think social media is a fad and can’t work for your business? Think again!
