Recent studies suggest that almost 71% of Internet female users are active on one or more social media sites, compared to slightly less than 62 % of men.

We want to help you focus our company’s social efforts to match your customer’s behaviors:

(1) Know Where Your Customers Spend Their Time:
Your online customers are spending a great amounts of time on social networks.
Whereas an average person might only spend 15-30 minutes per day, many people spend multiple hours each week.Your strategic e-commerce marketing plan should include a steady dose of social media along with email and other marketing strategies that reach your target audience.

(2) Find Content That Will Relate Deeply With Your Audience:
Some of the audience members make purchases, but most keep coming back just because they care about the content you are sharing.

(3) It’s Time to Take Video Seriously:
There’s been a stupendous increase in – how long users watch a video from 5 minutes to nearly 6 minutes). This may open the door for marketers looking to produce edutainment videos (combining education and entertainment to produce engaging videos that keep people engaged for long time).

(4) Consider the Role of Mobile
* Be sure your website is mobile-optimized
* Create content that is easy to consume and respond to via mobile devices (shorter responses are better)
*If your audience is business-oriented or located in the Asia/Pacific region, make sure to develop a mobile strategy

Social Networks are growing huger!So big, in fact, that many of them are competing in size with some of the largest countries in the world.
Apparently the Chinese social network QZone is even bigger than Facebook.

* Facebook is bigger than Russia.

* MySpace is pretty close in size to Mexico.

* LinkedIn, Bebo and Xanga are bigger than Canada.

* Considering Twitter’s strong growth, it won’t be long until it’s bigger than Sweden.

*Orkut is larger (barely) than France.
