social sound bite

On this week’s Social Sound Bite – recorded live at the KXIC studios in Iowa City – Jay and I discussed some some new data on how we use social networks. In their most recent quarterly summary of the latest trends in social networking, GlobalWebIndex notes that we’re spending more time on social media — on average 1.77 hours per day! Listen for the full sound bite and enjoy these useful links to the news, trends, and tips included in this week’s show.

Beyond the Sound Bite

  • Also of note from the GlobalWebIndex report, those 16–24 are the heaviest users of social networks (2.68 hours per day) with those 25–34 close behind (2.16 hours per day).
  • You can access the full report from GlobalWebIndex here.

Remember, the Social Sound Bite is just the appetizer! On Monday morning we’ll serve up a fresh new episode of the On Brand Podcast. This week we’ll be talking to Aaron Draplin of Draplin Design Co.
