Social Media for Dealers

A resource from HuebnerPetersen's Dealer Marketing Services

Social media is spreading, fast.

I stumbled upon this quick list of stats today at Jeff Bullas’s blog.  It’s a quick and dirty rundown on exactly how fast social media is spreading:

  • Facebook is traveling at over 400 million users with over 100 million added in 9 months
  • MySpace has over 57 million unique members in the US alone
  • Twitter is growing at over 1000% in the last 12 months with a similar growth in the previous year
  • Twitter has over 75 million users making over 50 million tweets a day
  • Linkedin is now at over 60 million users
  • YouTube is now serving over 32.4 billion videos a month to Gen Y and any other generation that loves a good video in the USA alone
  • The number of blogs is estimated at over 200 million

Social media is where customers are sharing their opinions, researching purchases, telling stories, connecting with local businesses, and sharing their experiences.  Social media is mainstream (read: your RV customers use social media), and it’s only going to keep spreading!
