Navigating Social Media Infographic

In honor of its upcoming book launch, online education and marketing firm 9Clouds has released a teaser for the full-length field guide to social media in the form of a handy infographic.

The graphic includes key stats, target markets, audiences, the time commitment for each network, a general overview designed to help you figure out which networks are best for you and why.

As for Twitter, the infographic cleverly calls it a “party line phone” and purports that Twitter takes 2+ hours of your time per week. That’s the same as Facebook in the infographic, but more than the time recommended to be spent on Pinterest, YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn.

I definitely spend way more than 2 hours per week on Twitter, but that’s because I make my living in social media. Although judging by the quantity of people I see scrolling through their Twitter feeds on the subway, in line, and walking down the street, I’d guess a lot of people spend a lot more than 2 hours per week tweeting or reading tweets.

It’s also interesting that the infographic categorizes Twitter as good for finding new customers, versus Facebook being a good tool for current customers. I think every major social network can be utilized for lead generation, but I don’t know if I’d categorically define Twitter as better for it than Facebook. It definitely depends on whether you’re spending or not, and your content strategy on each network.
