In the words of Rod Stewart – every picture tells a story. At MSI we’re constantly bantering about social media, which sites will make it, which ones will die a slow death. So we decided to take a deeper look at a variety of social and technology trends in 2013. And we’re going to tell that story with pictures. Our first foray was a look at the social media sites with the largest followings. And in order to tell the story, we used a tried but true method of having consumers associate “faces” of consumers with the sites. A total of 10 pictures were used to get out the faces and personality of the major social media sites.
And what we found may surprise you…
- Facebook doesn’t appear to be dying a slow death as some have predicted
- As more social sites are adopted, users tend not to throw out the baby with bathwater – rather they more deeply immerse themselves in social media,
- And probably not surprising – Twitter and Instagram should be watched closely
